God dammit! How many near perfect orcs I have lost to "bodyguard rescue"...
All you can do is pause the game and restart it and hope that next time you let him you, hes not instantly killed when you try to level him and make him epic/legendary
Is there any way to disable this? Or at least reduce the likelyhood?
I know if you have no bodyguard its reduced... but even then either random gondor guards or a random dominated orc saves you... so is the only way for this not to happen not to level in minas ithil and wait for minas morgul and have no dominated orcs in the area? (as well as uninstalling forthog)?

Yeah, he had me too. I was so careful to hit by a particular Uruk then up pops a Gondorian and chops his head off!! I agree with the previous about them turning up so you don't get stuck on an orc. I was really struggling on the end fight of my second seige. He was almost unbeatable on Nemesis (mainly due to no Elven Light and carragors and arrow chuckers everywhere. I was about to sulk and go down a level when he turned up. Having said that, I have commited Suicide by Orc several times and it hasn't actually raised the level of an orc once, so not sure why it doesn't work for me. Maybe it has to be on Nemesis the whole time (I went Normal for a while when I got stuck).

Thanks @LazarusNecrosis, I have now completed main story and on Shadow Wars 6. I now have quite a few legendary weapons and a afir amount of Legendary Orcs have been generated. I notice that they become Epic quite often, but rarely go Legendary, except when you lose a Citadel then the Overload always goes Legendary. Thanks for responding though!

I agree with that, but actually as the game has gone on I have grown to like the Saviour system. I die less anyway, and the times he has turned up is when I have been REALLY stuck with a captain, some are almost impossible for me, so I've appreciated the intervention. Its saved my launching my controller thorugh my very expensive TV on more than 1 occassion!!

Random saviour events are fun, but seriously dude I was trying to let that slave orc kill me.
Pash Lucky Shot my butt.
More like Pash Lazy Shot(because he shot a slave orc, not wearing armour and who was previously being beaten up by a savage).

Purposly dying is essential...If you don't know then it's obvious you never played Shadow Mordor.
*I don't know how this obvious strategy didn't occur to everyone to level a Orc Captain...
the arrogance of post @ top of thread stated ""or you could NOT die on purpose"
