With Lurtz on the battlefield, Isengard Scouts can receive the Hunt Leader upgrade, which promotes the battalion to rank 2 (allowing it to regenerate troops out of combat and to toggle between swords and bows). This upgrade also improves the Hunting Arrows ability, causing it to lower enemy troops' armor by an additional 50%, enemy heroes' armor by 25%.
Level 1: Toggle Weapon - Left click to toggle between bow and sword. Left click to toggle.
Level 1: Cripple - Pins enemy hero in place for 15 seconds. Can only used with the bow. Left click on icon then left click on target.
Level 3: Carnage - Lurtz gains +60% damage. Can only be used with the sword equipped. Left click to activate.
Level 5: Saruman's Squad Leader - All allies in the vicinity of Lurtz deal +30% damage. Lurtz gets a shield and thus gains +33% armor. (Passive ability)
Level 10: The Hunt - Lurtz marks an enemy unit/hero and makes it the target of the Hunt. As long as the hunted unit/hero is alive it moves 25% slower and reveals everything it sees to the player. Lurtz, Mauhur, Ugluk, and Scouts are 30% faster when they are far away from the target. Left click on any unit/hero.
|This hero has no upgrades. This means that this hero can not gain any sort of permanent boost from upgrades found in either its palantir or from other units/heroes. If this is not the case, fill in the section following the policy.|
Lurtz is the restless hunter of Isengard. Once he tags an enemy hero or unit he will never cease to hunt him down. He is able to strengthen nearby units. Once he finds his target he can easily pin him down with Cripple and then destroy him with Carnage.
