Ugluk was one of the captains of the Uruk-Hai. He was killed by Eomer in one-on-one combat after his Uruks were ambushed by Eomer's Riders of Rohan. The Uruks had been on their way to Isengard with their hobbit captives, Merry and Pippin.
With Ugluk on the battlefield, Isengard Scouts can receive the Shields upgrade, which equips the Scouts with shields. They gain +50% damage resistance against all elemental, magical, and ranged attacks. Additionally, for 3 seconds, the attacks of the Scouts reduce the damage of enemy units by 50%, enemy heroes by 25%.
Level 1: Dark Medicine - Ugluk gives dark medicine to his Uruk-Hai. Uruks in the target area are healed by 50% of their hit points.
Level 2: Hard March - Ugluk senses the enemy, driving his Uruk-Hai faster. Ugluk and nearby allied Uruk-Hai temporarily gain +25% speed.
Level 4: Bloodthirstiness - Ugluk feasts on the blood of his enemies. He gains life points equivalent to the damage he inflicts on enemies.
Level 6: Leader of the Uruk-Hai - Ugluk is the greatest and most powerful of the Uruks and is known for killing those he deems to be too weak. Nearby Uruks gain +25% armor. (Passive ability)
Level 10: Call From the Dungeons - Summons Mauhur and several Ugluk's Scouts to the battlefield. Mauhur is an elite scout who excels at taking down heroes. He also has the ability to reveal a large area around him.

Ugluk is one of the two hero units of Isengard that go exceptionally well with your Uruk soldiers, and your scouts in particular. Much like Lurtz, Ugluk allows your scouts to receive a unique upgrade, only Ugluk's upgrade increases their damage resistance against magic and arrows so that they aren't picked off as easily at range. Ugluk also improves the survival chances of your uruk warriors by healing himself and others, and by increasing the armor rating of fellow uruks around him. He can also hold his own exceptionally well thanks to his tremendous health pool and self-regenerating abilities. It's recommended to pair Ugluk up with two or three battalions of Uruk Scouts, to give them better chances at staying alive, and also to help them regenerate health and move with bursts of great speed.
When he reaches level ten, Ugluk becomes more than a match for enemy forces even on his own, particularly when he summons a back-up force of soldiers and a hero-killing hero unit out of the blue. Whether it's to send aid to dwindling soldiers nearby, or to ambush people, Ugluk's level ten ability can be utilized to grand effect on the battlefield.
"Sick is he?!"
"They've picked up our trail."
"We will deliver them."
"They are not for eating."
"Give them some medicine, boys!"
"I don't take orders from Orc maggots.""[laughs]"
