Bloodmaul Slag Mines are an Ogre infested dungeon where Ogres have enslaved Draenei, Orcs and Arrokoas to mine on their behalf. After killing the first boss, if you run past him, you will see someone tied to the mill. If you click on him, he will follow you to the end and help you. If at the end, the both of you are still alive, you will have gained an Epic Follower called Croman, a character inspired by Conan.
The dungeon drops 570 item level gear on normal, 630 item level gear on heroic and 685 on mythic level dungeons.
The zone that the dungeon is in is the Horde starting zone but there is a neutral flight point near the dungeon but you need to discover it first before you can use it. Discovery is only needed if you plan to do Challenge or Mythic mode dungeon run.
Roltall is a rock elemental at the far end to the bridge. Throughout the fight, he'll create fire balls that will move from the end of the bridge to the start. The balls will come back and you need to avoid them as best as you can. On Heroic, he'll even start blowing wind at you so you need to make sure you keep running forward. Ranged and healers are best placed in the middle but tank and melee have no choice but to fight up close and personal. Before the balls appear, the ground will have circles giving you hopefully enough time to cross over to the other side.
This boss is relatively easy but you need to be aware that he will call upon his slave adds to attack the group so the tank will need to pick up the adds. Throughout the fight, he'll create a pointed stalagmite and then destroy it, causing you to be stunned for a few seconds.
After you have killed Crushto, one of the players must release Croman from miller from the far end. Croman will follow whoever releases him and that person must survive and not die once for the achievement to be completed and everyone in the dungeon party to gain Croman as a follower. If the person after killing the last boss leaves the party before the achievement is completed, the achievement is not awarded. Croman is the only one who is pushing the mill so you can't mistake him.
A word of warning though, Croman will want to kill everyone he sees so he'll slow you down. When he's damaged, you need to heal him. If you're a rogue for instance, make sure you take bandages along with you to patch him up otherwise he'll die.
When you click on Croman, he'll say something funny or just plain irritating. For instance, he'll say 'You're getting on my nerves.'
Be sure when you enter the fight area to clear all the ogres otherwise the battle will get a little harder. You should use your ranged weapon to pull the four adds before you kill the final boss.
The main thing you need to worry about here is the elementals that he fires off at each of the furnaces one at a time. You need to destroy the elementals before they reach the furnace that they are heading towards otherwise they will come back and cause more problems for you.
On the way to this boss, there is what looks like a mini-boss, a Magma Lord. He's easy to despatch. There are a lot of trash adds on the way to keep you busy and naturally cause problems for you. You need to clear all the trash before you can start the encounter as it will then make it easier for you.
When you first approach the boss, he'll have his back turned to you. Approach him and he'll turn round and start fighting you. If you stealth and get too close, Croman will start the fight, that is if he's with you.
The fight is a number of stages, the first stage is against the Ogre. He'll throw everything he has at you so if you're low, you need to dodge. The next stage is Calamity, a fire creature before the final stage of Magmalotus. Magmalotus will stun you if you don't move with his AOE. The boss in the game is given as Magmalotus.
