ok i started a new game as dark elf, and i get to the part where you 1st see rats. i have a short sword equipped and am ready to fight... but everytime the rat hits me i get stunned for 2-3 seconds and the rat hits me every 1 second.. so basically i get beat to death by the rat. if i was any other character, i would not get stunned every time i got hit and the rat would attack me a lot slower.
is this just a glitch and are other people having this problem. i have died over 10 times trying to get past the 1st half of the 1st level and it is extremely fustrating.
also, i've tried adjusting the difficulty and that does not work. oh and i've tried blocking too but we both get stunned and the rat recovers before me so he ends up killing me.
