The section for how to reach Golden Wolflord that specifies you need to unlock and complete the island quest chain is no longer correct. You can use a waverider to navigate around the fog barrier all the way to the South tip of the island and unlock the teleport near Wolflord + fight wolflord before clearing the fog.
