    A good way to burn out an enraged foe is to repeatedly pin them in place or freeze them if they arent immune. Their rage timer continues to tick while they're stuck, or at least it seems that way. After that it's just a waiting game.

    Also, incase you werent aware, you can knock an enraged opponent out of rage and into a dazed or terrified state if you're lucky enough for the orc to have anything that dazes them them, just be careful not to get whacked while trying to do so.

    Appreciate the tips man, did not know there was a counter on their rage but that helps a lot. Id say however that dazing a captain is about in the same boat as pinning or freezing them because in a lot of circumstances your surrounded by an army and cant focus on taking advantage of them being dazed but still thank you lol

    When surrounded by an army, it helps if you have the skill that makes it so that moves that require might dont use all of your might (incase the daze comes from something that requires might) and the skill to speed up dominations. As soon as you daze the captain, blast an elven light (I prefer to use either frost or poison because fire wont effect defender type orcs) the blast should knock everyone away more than long enough to dominate the dazed captain

    kill al sorrounding orcs and ologs so nobody kills him and then just wait until the rage is over and he is green broken

     

    or use shadow pull to separate him from others and wait until rage ends

    As this is a guy in your world, it's easy to control the environment in which you face him.   Mark him in the Region via the Army screen, go to his location and get him 1 on one or 1 on as few as possible.  Assuming he's not an Olog or is arrow-proof, shadow pull him up and away (rooftop) if possible.    Ensure you know what enrages him and try to avoid using it  (don't equip an inventory item that applies fire, don't call revenants, etc).  If he's Enraged by Injury, Mortal Wounds, Everything, etc then get him down to what would normally be his 'broken' point then get well out of his range and wait for him to 'cool off'.  But keep your eyes on him.  If his rage wears off but he's not broken, send a few hammer/arrows his way until he's green or becomes enraged again.   It there are allied grunts around kill them with arrows or pop their heads with that skill enabled to create a 'safe' buffer around him and reduce the term of his enragements/reduce the risk he'll be killed by one of them.   Make sure there are no allied Captains around too, shadow brand over to them and send away (retreat). 

    Worst case and there's all sorts of clutter around him while he's broken and ready to be recruited, slow time, rotate around until u get a clear shot and shadow brand to him, done.     Ologs are easier as they stand tall and stick out like a sore thumb, Marksman/skinny warriors can be tricky in large crowds due to their small size and generally lesser health.
