|Location||Isle of Dread, Feralas|
Lord Lakmaeran was a named chimaera previously located on the Isle of Dread in Feralas. He required 7-10 people (at level 60, at level 80 he was soloable by most of the classes) to kill. He had no significant loot table, but was required for the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest line. He respawned in 15–25 minutes.
The information about him as an encounter is, as mentioned at the top, kept only for historical purposes.

He starts off with Lightning Shield so dispel it immediately to reduce the damage your melee will take. Throughout the fight he will attempt to recast this so just dispel it every time. Spread out your raid as much as possible as his chain lightning will arc through players and in turn cause the stackable Static Conduit. He will hit your tank for around 1000 to 1200 damage on average. Beyond this it is a fairly straight-foward fight.
Apparently, Lord Lakmaeran and all the other chimaeras ultimately met their doom when the Cataclysm caused the Isle of Dread to sink below ocean surface. Although chimaeras are able to fly, the ones on the isle have not been seen since the event, which suggests that the isle was destroyed faster than they could make their escape. For a while it would've seemed that the denizens of Azeroth was never again to enjoy the tasty meat of the Isle of Dread-chimaeras, but in Patch 4.3.0 a salvation was found through the appearance of a new chimaerok, Prince Lakma!
