Follower is a reward from the heroic Bloodmaul Slag Mines achievement
Quoting Laghunter's post from the US beta forums on getting him:
To do this, make sure Croman stays at full health at all times; don't wanna risk loosing him:
Clear all trash on the way to the Magmolatus boss, but leave the boss alone.
Now clear the way to Slave Watcher Crushto and kill him; talk to Croman.
Kill Magmoaltus and let Croman get his sword.
Make your way to Roltall and kill him; keeping Croman healed at all times.
Make your way to Gug'rokk and kill him, wait for Croman to do his thing and get the achieve announcement

Random number god, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good players or bad. Why we fought, or why we wiped. All that matters is that few stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Random number god... so grant me one request. Grant me my drop! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!
A double Arnie reference. Croman likely refers to both Conan (who wields a two-hander, like a ret pally), as played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and
, early (and primitive) man. The Quest which rewards you with Croman at your Lunarfall Inn, "Come With Me If You Want To Live", is a well-known line from 'The Terminator' series.
If you wipe he despawns, making it impossible to complete.
Like mentioned elsewhere he is a double reference to Conan and Arnold Schwarzenegger and can be found pushing a wheel in a circle just like Arnold in the first Conan movie.
Earned the achievement on my warlock and it seems that the follower is not unlocked on other characters even though it is an achievement. So followers unlocked via achievements are character specific.
What's up with the downvotes?
What is best in life? The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair?
No! To crush your enemies. See them driven before you. And hear the lamentations of their women.
He can also glitch to anyone still in combat with the miners. Just had it happen. Healer went to go talk to him and he glitched to our rogue in combat. Make sure you clear everything out before talking to him.
Woulda figured Croman to be a fury warrior..
But that Int might help out if he's Croman the Librarian.
Croman! The adventurer!
Croman! Warrior without fear!
He's more powerful than any man!
His legend spreads across the land
I really like Croman, he's a great follower, but he's always going on and on about crushing his enemies, he wants to continually see them driven before him, and the lamentation of his enemy's lady folks...
Croman will adress you as "sir" even if you play as a female character.
I find it highly amusing that I got Mining as one of his traits, so I saved him from a mine only to make him work in my one.
Crom is the god praised by Conan both in the books and the movies.
As I huge fan of Conan the Cimmerian I must recruit him.
“I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, & am content.”
I need you to come on patrol with me if you want to live.
He's so hilarious when you get him and he actually gets that sword of his after you kill the second boss. It's a shame he's not a bodyguard, though. Having him running around nekked while you kill things in the world would rock.
He doesn't actually despawn if you wipe, though. He fights on and then dies. XD
He's too pale and have regular deep-set eyes (typical Caucasian) to be an Arnie :(
Croman, the despawner!
Despawned on our way out from Magmo... there was an ogre hanging from a platform, he seemed to stop right there..no idea why.
Just awesome in garrison invasion because of this dmg, his cc (repentance that doesn't break on damage).
So we rescue him from being a slave stripped off all his equipment and clothings but don't have the decency to give him another outfit? (I know it's because of the Conan reference but it kinda makes me feel bad for him xD)
Make sure you've had him pick up his sword before facing the last boss, or you won't be able to get him as a follower afterwards. My group had him live throughout, but never brought him back to the furnace to pick up his sword (we did that boss first), and when we beat the last boss he just knelt there pining for his sword. Sadly, people in my group who didn't yet have him as a follower weren't offered the opportunity to get him.
Don't make the same mistake we did!
On death: "I'll be back."
When I won him, he gained Rebuke, Cave Dweller, Marshwalker, and Gronnslayer. I've got him as backup/assistant for environmental missions and Gronn missions, and he hasn't disappointed yet.
In the follower search, Croman has a unique search keyword: Shameful
It doesn't matter how much armour you give him he still looks naked.
Also yay! I have Arnie! :)
What pant is he wearing?
Had him on patrol with me during a invasion. This was his stats:
Croman: 655ilvl dps: 8.6K
Crusader Strike: min 27.3K Max: 89.1K Avg 34.4K
Attack: Min: 6.8K Max Hit. 24.4K avg Hit. 10.9K
I have decided to do inside test of all my Garrison Followers how much
they can pull against Training Dummies.
I did this to find out which Follower is the best to take on a patrol during Garrison Invasion content.
Each test took 1 minute.
I'm not testing bodyguards here.
After few hours of "training" it turnd out that the winner is…
He does some sick dps (also aoe) and even sicker healing. That makes him King of Garrison Invasion companion.
does more dps, she doesnt heal and she tends to die during invasion.
Honorable mentions are:
- for best dps.
- for most bizzare style.
- good single target dps.
- good single target dps.
- good aoe.
Below You can see test results for all my active Followers.

: Upgrading Croman's armor will NOT give him clothes.
You will just have to deal with his loincloth and ginormous piping hot abbs.
Nobody else noticed he's about twice as tall in the dungeon than he is when he's a follower?
Give us a quest where we can obtain his Armor.
because im getting tired as a commander to have half ass naked people in my Garrison.
I want disciplin!
Here he is fighting against target dummy:
OK, So I used a Follower Retraining Scroll on him and as luck was good, he turned to a Treasure Hunter like I had hoped...however for some reason his block on the list is now red and he cannot be sent out of any missions...I hope this is just a bug.
Fun fact: you can't complete this on Mythic, he currently says that we should come back when we're stronger!
Why is Croman a paladin, shouldn't he be a warrior to fit the reference more?
Strange that no one mentioned that Croman was there when the player assaulted the Dark Portal to enter the old Draenor.
I happened to notice him for the first time, even I had already levelled like 6 lvl 100s. You can search him by his NPC name: Arnold Croman.
In addition, during the Dark Portal assault he's equipped with a sword and a shield. Which suggest him being a protection paladin. But as a follower he's a retribution paladin. Could Arnold possibly know how to dual spec? O.o
He looks nothing like
, not a conan reference.
For a highly mobile classes doing this achievement\follower, be careful right after
, where Croman gets his sword.
In case you rush away instantly (with blinks, heroic leaps, torpedos, etc) there's a risk server won't find any player near Croman to be followed.
When this happens, Croman despawns and this is a game over for that day. Gotta wait for a reset to do it again.
