  1. Above a crack and gap within the floor, you’ll see a “Basis Block” suspended by a crane. You’ll wish to shoot the rope holding it up (be sure you’re not standing beneath it. Sorry, Gale. I completely didn’t do this on objective). Drop down by way of the opening, go west into the corridor outdoors, then proceed by way of the west doorway right into a room with an altar and headless statue. Stroll by way of the door right here.
  2. Go to the north aspect of the ruins and chat with the thieves to realize entry (this can probably end in a battle). Take two lefts after which a proper by way of a doorway till you’re standing within the room with the altar and statue. Undergo the door on the west aspect right here.
  3. Run round to the northeast aspect of the ruins, climb down some vines, and hold going till you discover a hatch.

In case you take one of many first two choices right here, you’ll wish to take a left and head north within the Dank Crypt (go proper at your personal peril). Put together for a battle with the thieves in case you enter these methods.

When you cope with anybody silly sufficient to battle you, enter the room on the far north of this chamber, work together with the coffin, and have a chat with Withers. Don’t assault him. Hold the dialog on the optimistic aspect and he’ll supply to affix you.

In case you fail to get Withers at this level, he’ll present as much as your camp randomly searching for to affix you. However selecting to get him immediately is wise, as he’s fairly helpful.

Why it’s best to get Withers early

Withers’ most direct profit is the flexibility to revive fallen celebration members for 100 gold do you have to run out of revive scrolls. Simply chat with him at your camp to provoke the deal.

It’s also possible to pay him 200 gold to alter your class or respec your character or 100 gold to summon hirelings (who could be any of the 12 lessons within the recreation) who will be a part of you. Be aware {that a} hireling fills a celebration slot, that means you’ll have to go away somebody behind—which for me is okay since I don’t like Gale.

Being able to revive your fallen comrades, tweak your class ought to it not be functioning as you’d like, or rapidly recruit any class within the recreation is a reasonably helpful factor to have early on, as it’s going to assist you troubleshoot tough conditions with far better effectivity.
