FFXIV: Complete Hildibrand Quest List and Requirements

The Hildibrand quests can be a little hard to find if you don't have one currently running, here's where to find every Hildibrand quest.

The Hildibrand quests may have been mysteriously absent during Shadowbringers, but they're back in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. Not only that, but at the end of the questline, you can get your hands on the expansion's Manderville weapons, which function as Endwalker's Relic armaments.

The Hildibrand questline runs from A Realm Reborn up to Endwalker, with a break in Shadowbringers. It's the longest questline in the MMO outside of the Main Scenario Quests and takes several hours to complete even when rushing through and desyncing some of the content.

With that in mind, we've put together a list of all the Hildibrand quests in FFXIV and where to start them, as they often do not indicate where you need to go for the next one.

FFXIV Hildibrand Quest Locations

Each expansion's Hildibrand quests require you to have completed the expansion's final main patch MSQ, which will be titled after the expansion. These are blue quests, meaning they have blue icons on the map.

It takes a long time to get through these missions, but you're going to want to do it for the cosmetic and emote rewards you get along the way. The Hildibrand quests are also easily the silliest you'll find in Final Fantasy XIV. Hopefully, this list mitigates some of the fatigue from pushing through the entire questline, particularly the ARR portion.
