Elden Ring's Lands Between is a vast map. So vast it's likely some of you who have been playing since launch day are yet to see every corner of it. One of the best ways to get around The Lands Between is to ride Torrent. A cross between a horse and a goat who you can ride around to your heart's content. However, even Torrent has his pitfalls, but they might be bugs rather than features.
One of the biggest pitfalls with Torrent players have highlighted is his inability to double jump when you step off a ledge. That this doesn't happen every single time has led some players to believe it's part of the game, or perhaps linked to your loadout being too heavy for the poor beast. YouTuber Zullie the Witch has explained why that probably isn't the case.
According to Zullie, Torrent being unwilling to double jump in these perilous situations is due to not only the weapon you're holding but also the way you hold it. While the problem does appear to be linked to larger weapons, such as swords and spears, it's also connected to how players tend to hold these weapons, usually over their shoulder. These are category two and three weapons, and Torrent falling rather than double jumping is likely due to a flag being left out of the fall animation.
A lack of want to double jump at inopportune times isn't the only problem players have with Torrent. Some have also noticed the animal's health doesn't automatically refill like other Elden Ring NPCs. Well, that's because Torrent isn't like all the other NPCs. Since he isn't tied to a particular part of the map, Torrent doesn't follow the same script, and his health won't regenerate automatically. Getting his HP back to full strength is simple enough though. Just give him some food or a potion.
All told, Torrent appears to be a pretty buggy element of Elden Ring. It's not all bad, though. Another Torrent glitch discovered appears to make the loyal horse-goat fly. On the flip side, an entirely different glitch discovered this week results in Torrent abandoning you, so maybe not so loyal after all.
