    Good idea

     

    I followed Uruk Hollow tutorial but I have to recruit him and give him the cursed weapon and then betray him, kill him myself so, he kills me back but he does not become the stormbringer, he becomes "the betrayed" and stays as a normal captain

     

    I hope that a next update increases chance to encounter him.

     

    The Stormbringer should spawn normally in the game, just like any other captain, he was adevertised in the trailer

    I want him in my army!

    Is there a confirmed update coming?

    Certainly there has to be a METHOD to getting him. Somebody out there has to know...

    I didn't see any official annoucement of an update coming, but there are some bugs and maybe they release a new update.

     

    It would be great if they increase chnace to encounter The Stormbringer and the yellow machine orcs too

    Hey everyone. I got in direct contact with Uruk's Hollow through Facebook Messenger. I JUST received this message from him. This is a copy and paste of his response to me:



    Hi! Yeah, no problem, I'll tell you how to get this guy.

    Before you try to make a Stormbringer, you need some preparation. You should start a new playthrough to have better Cheating Death chances, and then you should make a Machine first. For whatever reason, the animation that makes Stormbringer also creates the Machine, so get him out of the way first.

    The first thing you need for Stormbringer is to do is get a Captain with the right voice. You might recall from my video descriptions or my scars guide that "Special" scars such as Stormbringer are tied to the voice of the captain. You should look for a Captain with the same voice as the Stormbringer for best results. I know of one other voice that can get Stormbringer - the voice of Night-Bringer, The Inflamed, and The Amputator.

    Something to keep in mind when looking for the right voice is that Captains who already have a unique personality won't work, so for example, Black-Blade, The Dead, and The Elder all have the correct voice, but they cannot become Stormbringer due to them already having a unique personality. Some exceptions exist for this "rule" but I suggest simply looking for captains who don't have unique personalities already.

    Once you find your Captain, simply let him kill or humiliate you twice. Make sure to disable Saviors before that. And once he is rigged to cheat death, you need to kill him and make sure the animation is the one I had in the video. This part is quite annoying, as there are three different animations that can happen, and it is impossible to direct which one is used.

    There's something you can do in case you get the wrong animation, and it doesn't need back ups. All you have to do is kill him while on a Nemesis Mission. If you see the wrong animation is happening, just close your game, and when you go back in, your Captain will be intact, and the nemesis mission will still be available to try again. Warchief and Outpost missions works too.

    Lastly, two warnings, despite doing it all right, your Captain might still come back and not be Stormbringer, or have a hook instead of the cursed arm. For this reason, I recommend the use of back ups. Second, defenders cannot become Stormbringer, so don't try those guys.

    I noticed the DerrameN user in the SoW forums says he is following my guide, but he is doing stuff that I didn't even hint at. First, you don't need to recruit the Captain first, this is an old myth. Second, you don't have to give him Cursed Weapon and he doesn't need to have it beforehand. Your Uruk will get a lot of Curse traits once he comes back.

    Feel free to ask me anything else if you need more assistance.

    - You are MOST welcome!


    Here is my copy and paste reply to the one from Uruk's Hollow that I already copied and pasted above. Here it is. I am waiting for his reply. As soon as he replies, I will copy and paste that here as well:

    My reply to the Uruk's Hollow message I received and copied and pasted above:



    So a good way to do this, is to try it with Night-Bringer, The Amputator, and the Inflamed. Collect as many of those as possible, and listen closely to their voices.

    Let them kill me once, THEN let them kill me again in the "Revenge Vendetta". Just those two times.

    After that, hunt them down again, and do the correct execution with the chopping off of the arms.

    Then ... How do I get the "cheat death" animation to occur?

    Sorry for the double-post, but he just responded. Here it is:


    I gave the Amputator and the others as examples, but remember I said it's not a good idea to use captains who already have unique personalities. Don't use the ones I listed, but look for some that have the same voices.

    They should ambush you around 25 minutes after you kill them, if everything goes right.

    The chance to encounter a Manhunter with that mask as a dark slayer is extremely low

     

    I encountered one at early gam and the other two acme from chests...

     

    I hope that next updates increase chance of this Stormbringer to spawn.

    Yellow machine tribe too.

    I didn't read anywhere where he said finding a masked, dark, Slayer manhunter was necessary. He just said it all comes down to a captain with the same voice.

    Furthermore I might add, in Uruk's Hollow's YouTube video on getting the Stormbringer, it showed a NON masked captain becoming the Stormbringer, and after becoming the Stormbringer, the captain still never had a mask.
