–The Fellowship of the Ring, The Bridge of Khazad-dûm
Gundabad Uruks are the elite unit of the faction Gundabad. They wield Gundabad Uruk weapons which have the same base strength as Uruk equipment and wear Gundabad Uruk armour. They are much stronger than regular Gundabad Orcs.
Despite popular belief, they are in fact canon, and are meant to represent the huge Orcs of Bolg's bodyguard, who are said to be Uruks out of Moria.
They will make Orc noises like other Orcs and Uruks, they eat maggoty bread and attack enemy factions if they come within their sight range. They will see and hunt you down if you come within 16 blocks of them if you have negative alignment with Gundabad.
They spawn in the Misty Mountains and Grey Mountains at night, and commonly in the caves under the mountains. They will also spawn in Gundabad invasions anywhere. In Public Beta 29 their spawning rate was decreased.
They drop Orc bones, rotten flesh, maggoty bread, coins, Orc draught and Uruk steel ingots and rarely the armour pieces and weapon they are wielding.

These Gundabad Uruks can be your bodyguards for 350 alignment and 40 silver coins, and +400 alignment and 60 silver coins for the archer variant. They can be hired from Gundabad Orc chieftains, who spawn in Gundabad Orc camps. As always, as one's alignment increases, price decreases.
