Prince Lakma (The Last Chimaerok)

A couple of weeks ago one of my readers reminded me about this rare. I had taken all sorts of screenshots of him over a year ago and somehow just never got around to writing about him. Well, I've been following this guy around for the past few days, and with bags chock full of Chimaerok Tenderloin - I'm ready to give you all the skinny on him.

Prince Lakma (perhaps the son of Lord Lakmaeran?) is a level 87 rare chimaera with approximately 4.2M health. You can find him flying around the lush green area in the mountains between Feralas and Silithus. I marked his patrol route in red on the maps below.

Now here is the interesting thing about this rare - because his patrol route spans two different zones (and I'm assuming because of CRZ) it is possible to find two versions of him up at any given time.

In the video below you can see my hunter tame him in Silithus, and then find and kill him in Feralas only moments later. All you need to do is move back and forth between the zone lines and wait a few moments. If he is up in either zone he should show up within a half a minute or so. The spot where I waited for him was at about 21.8, 6.0 (in Silithus) and then moving north ever so slightly to 48.0, 79.0 where the zone changes to Feralas.

This guy only has one notable drop, and that is Chimaerok Tenderloin. He generally drops about a full stack of them. This item is used in the epic cooking recipe Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops. This is the only epic quality recipe in game; it used to be obtainable via the quest: Recipe: Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops which was part of the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest line. The quest can no longer be completed since Cataclysm, therefore the only way this recipe can be obtained these days is to trade/purchase it from another player who still has the unlearned recipe.

For level 90's he is not difficult to kill. His lightning shield hit my character for less than 1k each tick, and I hardly had to worry about keeping my pet healed.

Prince Lakma is also tamable by hunters. Those looking to tame him will need to be at least level 87 and in Beast Mastery spec to tame him. Note that he is immune to Freezing Trap

Prince Laka Tamed
His spawn timer seems to be somewhere in the range of 1 - 2 hours. 

Remember, if you find him - be sure to look for the second version of him while your there!


  1. Interesting, I haven't gone to visit him since I wrote about him ages ago - certainly before CRZ! With the addition of all those stable slots, I may need to go back and tame this guy.

    Watch me fill up my new stable slots as fast as you can say Lickity Split!

    1. Haha, I'm going to be doing the same with all these new slots. Unfortunately thats means going out and RE-capturing so many I abandoned ages ago. ahh well

  2. I must go find him and take a pic!

  3. I'm so glad, i could be part of this blog. Thanks for doing the write up on him. I found out about him, when i was researching for The Evalcharr.


    Great site

    1. Thanks again for the tip! When I read your original comment I kind of had a "D'oh!" moment lol. :)
