    In Game time?   Between ~30 minutes and an hour or 2 I believe.   For some it may take longer, others faster, I've never timed it.     I've had over 100 Captains Cheat Death (there's a stat for that) and some have Cheated Death at least 3 times.     I've had a few Cheat Death that i was VERY happy to have back, most that Cheat Death I let die or wanted to die, so their return normally means they are killed shortly thereafter, one way or the other.    Most who Cheat Death also Betray you, ratio being something to the tune of 75%.      Not sure what you mean by 'a way you had wanted'.   Do you mean a guy you shamed multiple times and inherited weak traits died at a lower level then when returned was higher and stronger traited?

    I can purify every orc .... One stays down ... Others replaced, really hoping the one laying down still comes back, but it's been longer than 2 hours game play. I'm trying to make a spectre / wraith touched.

    Ah I see - yes I've tried a few of those 'triggers' (Storm Bringer/Spectre) and either it simply no longer works at higher levels (Talion lvl 60/game finished) or their triggers have been removed from the game or it's just such a small percentage that do it is very rare for them to spawn/return (to rare for me to keep spending time on it).    On the bright side, you will have a better(?) opportunity to find them during Vendettas and ranked sieges once the July update is released.   Can't say I've run into them this way yet either though.

    The Pain Seeker and the Slayer at hit streaks above 100 are consistently in play though, but neither of these need you to kill the guy and hope for his respawn.

    I've restarted my game 2 days before news of update... Whoa is me ...but odd thing is, on my second playthrough (since I have knowledge of what to do ) I've had no cheat deaths... Just relentless ambushes from random orcs.

    In my most recent playthrough a Captain cheated death 4 times within about 4 hours.  This was in Minas Ithil at the very beginning and he was already deranged by default.  He was really screwed up by the final 4th encounter.

    It should be easier to get captains to cheat death after the update as you can turn saviours off so you can purposely die to the captain twice like is recommended before you kill them in that certain way. For example if you want The Beast find an Olog you like let him kill you twice, third time ride a graug and kill him then he should come back as The Beast. I find doing it on higher difficults helps them cheat death. Normal is ok but the hgiher the better imo. Easy makes it very hard for officers to cheat death also after the update they announced that officers will cheat death more often so that's always a positive. With online recruitment it will really make for some fantastic orcs or I hope so anyways.

    i am exactly in the same situation i did get all unique trait orc , and i miss a stormbringer/specter , i have been doing all tips until now , cant get it . I know that everyone conclude thats its better to wait the update , but i would like to ask one question i have seen in some thread that early game death trigger is easier to make work , so does someone who have made stormbringer/ the specter uruk can give me ultimate tips ( like any information very important , maybe it concern tribe , or personnality of some orc who could have an impact ) or tell if its possible to make one through pits ( with doomed ) , thanks all in advance , its my fourth time restarting the same to get easier cheat death and some unique orc , i have done around 450h of playing , i just would like on of these 2 orcs , thanks you again !

    If I’m not mistaken I had my first guy cheat death right after I finished the shadows of the past story mission that unlocks elven rage, he was “the brander” and needless to say he was my first legendary I came across, he branded me. But I did get sweet revenge.
