Dangers

This island's main danger is the Kerrans, who, as mentioned above, will generally leave you alone until you start killing their kindred. Then this place becomes rather scary, primarily because there are lots of NPCs in pretty small areas, and a lot of wandering NPCs (which will have sow!) who can cast and heal friends.

(Mostly incorrect but preserved for posterity: At lower levels, the front of the zone is much like the front of Crushbone, lower level spawns that are generally separate from each other so that you can handle them one at a time.)

At lower levels, pulls tend to be 2-3 cats at a time unless you are a bit higher level than ideal for fighting or are using lull/harmony to pull. The lower-level cats are warriors or shamans. There are some warrior-only cats that are around level 6-8, but they tend to spawn in the same spots as the level 10-12 cats that can be shamans. Be careful of the named wizard that can spawn near the entrance, who is a bit higher level.

At 15 for groups or 17-18 for solo you will definitely need to move further into the island to find Kerrans that are worth hunting, and this is dangerous. The canyon in front of the entrance has odd pathing and a mix of warrior, shaman, and ranger NPCs. The shamans heal, slow, dot, and blind. The rangers root and snare. The docks area also has a mix of cats from level 12-18ish, with 1-3 cats per pull without lull/harmony. Be careful inside the buildings!

Higher level still, 20+, hunting cats, there is a large open area around a fire pit with a few buildings including a temple, a tiger hut, and a large wooden building with a basement. There are some named spawns over here, LOTS of wandering kerrans and their tiger and gorilla pets, and more casters. NPCs will heal each other through walls, slow, dot, snare, blind, root, etc.

There is also an island area out in front of the docks, with small windy canyons and rocky walls. There are a few cats out here around a death pit trap area, and also teens-level necromancer NPCs who can see invisible. Pathing is wonky. It's a nasty area.

Benefits

This is another dungeon that is relatively untouched, therefore making it good hunting without much competition. This is probably in large part due to the fact that few people know or care to go there and check it out (I myself played an Erudite for most of the beta and never stepped foot on the island). It is also kind of far away for most of the characters, including Erudites, who by the time they're ready for this are bound to Qeynos. The only other problem that I can foresee with this area is that there is a large jump in difficulty from the front spawn spots to the ones further in. The tunnels provide some separate Kerrans to hunt, but the larger areas are just scary.

The zone has a fun, tropical theme not really seen in other places of classic EverQuest. Loot is abysmal (fish, milk, a few cheap gems, a few research words) overall, but the experience is pretty nice especially with a group to keep the kills coming more steadily. 15-22 is possible near the entrance and the docks area. 22-30 is possible deeper in where the nameds spawn in buildings, but the area is very dangerous even with a group... many wandering cats, cats healing through walls, shamans slowing and dotting you, etc.

Tips for soloing: In the teens, try to stick to "mamluk" mobs - the others in the same level range are casters and will be much more difficult for the same amount of xp. There's a great solo spot for the low-high teens at the bridge near the entrance to the zone. If you sit in the middle of the bridge, there are a total of 4 mamluks (one at each corner) nearby that will not aggro from their spawns. Can camp these 4 plus 2 others that are on the path to the southwest toward the docks area. You can safely camp these 6 spawns in any combination (2, 4 or all 6 depending on class and gear) without aggroing any annoying caster mobs.

Traveling To And From

There is only one way in and out of the island, and it is through the tunnel on the east side of the bridge that spans the river. This leads to the narrow strip of water that separates Kerra Isle from Odus, a strip small enough that it can be swum with ease. Only low-level adventurers need fear the swim, as there are occasional giant piranha that swim the waters.
