The quest line theme for the islands is trying to find Robeau. I think I started it from Chuck Laurie, who brought me to the mayor of Velia to start the island hopping chain. I honestly can’t remember cause I was a wee bit drunk when I did the quest line:D Hope that helps though. Narvo island is good too for wolves and bears.
This is a great way to gather lots of wolf meat for cooking, and wolf blood for alchemy while getting hunting xp. Always do the island quests first though, since they give way more exp, this is just the grind to get additional exp apart from the dailies.
Edit: Also in the video I say the seagull meat isn’t useful, but it does have a use, you’ll need it for the bear and wolf boss lures for those scrolls you get from the mayor of Velia.
