Final Fantasy XIV: How to Unlock Hildibrand Quests?


In the universe of Final Fantasy XIV, various quests will bring players through all sorts of adventures, but the Hildibrand saga has been the most popular side quest story — offering drama, intrigue, and exclusive rewards. Wondering how to find Hildibrand Manderville? Here's how to unlock the Hildibrand quests and start different side quests in Final Fantasy XIV.

How to Unlock Hildibrand Quests?

To unlock the first Hildibrand quest, the only requirement is to have reached level 50. It's called "The Rise and Fall of Gentlemen" and is given by Wymond in Ul'dah (X: 9.9, Y: 8.7). Rewards of this quest are 658 Final Fantasy 14 Gil.

Talk to Nashu Mhakaracca, assistant of late inspector Hildibrand. She is investigating some zombie stories but is not able to progress far. Wymond will ask you to find and help her. Inspector will appear at the end of this quest, and from here, you can unlock Hildibrand Quest to unlock some amazing rewards.

Unlocking all questlines from the further expansions can be done on the only condition of having reached a specific base level and having completed all previous sidequests.
