can't wait, as soon as I get a game evening, I will go this route.
Well just past the rats, there is a ladder.
Try and lure out the rats, if you have an axe of any kind, try 2 handing the weapon, and it should (hopefully) take out a rat in one hit.
Then (if I remember correctly) there will be a spiral staircase on your left, and forward will lead to a new area with a very aggressive pig.
Don't bother with the spiral staircase, the guy up there is very tough for new starters.
Follow the route, and bring home the bacon.
Near the pig there is a staircase down, follow it through and it'll take you where you need to go.
But I do understand correctly, I kille the Pig! or do I just go out of its way? I hear a lot, that people seem to just go out of bosses way.....
