I attempted Bolster as a level 11 WAR/THF.

When I spawned him, I had Regen and Reraise, and I used a Potion +1 during the fight. I did 152 damage, which brought him down to about 15% hp, before he killed me. From this I estimate his hp to be around 175.

Interestingly, after he killed me, he did not despawn, nor did his health regenerate. Instead he waited around while I rested after using my Reraise, apparently hoping to continue our epic battle. I waited for my weakened state to clear, but after 3 minutes I received this message:

"The monster fades before your eyes, a look of disappointment on its face."

The Bolster used a poison attack, like other crawlers; it also used a "Level Down" ability which reduced my effective level, I believe by 1. I am not sure if this was his ability, or a requirement of the elite training.
