You can begin this line of quests if you’ve done the Heavensward Hildibrand Quests and the level 70 Main Scenario Quest “Stormblood”. After these prerequisites are met, speak to the Conspicuously Inconspicuous Man in Kugane (X:10.6, Y:9.8) to accept a quest called “A Hingan Tale: Nashu Goes East”.

Once you’ve completed “Don’t Do the Dewprism”, you can perform the emote by typing /mmambo or /mandervillemambo into your chat bar.

The Hildibrand quest line is a long-running series in FFXIV that has new additions to the story in every expansion except for Shadowbringers. So, in order to start with the Stormblood leg of Hildibrand’s adventures, you’ll need to complete Stormblood’s base MSQ and the Hildibrand quests for Heavensward.

Once you’re ready, head on over to Kugane to speak with the Conspicuously Inconspicuous Man at (X:10.6, Y:9.8) to begin the quest “A Hingan Tale: Nashu Goes East”.


A Hingan Tale: Nashu Goes East

After accepting this quest, you’ll find Nashu in Kugane to search for Hildibrand. You will then question some of the residents of Kugane to help Nashu in her search.

This part of the quest requires you to speak with 3 NPCs in Kugane at the following locations:

NPC Location
Kyusen Kugane (X:12.0, Y:10.3)
Amaji Kugane (X:9.3, Y:8.3)
Conspicuously Inconspicuous Man Kugane (X:10.9, Y:8.5)

When you’re done questioning the people of Kugane, speak with Nashu a couple more times and the quest will be completed.


Life Imitates Art Imitates Life

This next quest is actually quite similar to the first one. After accepting it from Nashu in Kugane (X:11.7, Y:8.8), you are tasked with questioning even more citizens of the city, targeting wealthier NPCs this time around.

You can find these NPCs at the following locations:

NPC Location
Byakudan Kugane (X:11.3, Y:9.9)

Preening Pundit Kugane (X:13.9, Y:9.8)

After speaking with these citizens, talk to Nashu at (X:11.4, Y:11.8). When the cutscene with Nashu is done, make your way to (X:13.1, Y:13.2) to speak with Shigure.

After the next cutscene ends, you’ll be prompted to search for Shigure. You can find him at the Short Pier in Kugane (X:9.1, Y:12.6).

To finish the quest, travel to the Ruby Sea and speak with Shigure one more time at (X:38.2, Y:38.2).


Of Wolves and Gentlemen

The next quest in the Hildibrand quest line is started by talking to Shigure at the Ruby Sea (X:38.2, Y:38.2). This quest will have you speak to a series of NPCs in order to find the Wolf Burglar.

Simply follow the quest markers for this part of your adventure and enjoy the cutscenes. The quest ends with Shigure in Kugane (X13.2, Y:13.2).

The next quest can be started by speaking to Hildibrand at Kugane (X:12.1, Y:6.0). You’ll need to interrogate more NPCs, but this time you’ll be questioning the pirates of Sakazuki in the Ruby Sea.

Talk to Nashu Mhakaracca to begin this quest. She can be found in the same spot where the previous quest ended at Kugane (X:10.4, Y:8.2).

While talking to Nashu, Hildibrand will run off and you’ll have to go after him. You can find him near the Thavnairian Consulate aethernet shard at (X:12.3, Y:15.0).

After speaking with Hildibrand, a new trial called “Kugane Ohashi” will become available in the Duty Finder. Queue up and defeat Yojimbo in this trial to continue the quest.

With the trial cleared and Yojimbo defeated, your next step is to speak with Hildibrand once again. Next, make your way back to Nashu and she will have you speak to some of the citizens of Kugane one more time.

Here’s where you can find the NPCs for this quest:

NPC Location
Byakudan Kugane (X:11.3, Y:9.9)

Don’t Do the Dewprism

Speak to Hildibrand again at Kugane (X:11.8, Y:8.8) to begin the next quest. This is another one of those quests where all you have to do is follow the markers and speak to the NPCs.

Your final stop will be at Kugane (X:12.3, Y:8.1) to speak with Shigure.

This is the final quest in this chapter of Hildibrand’s adventures, and will reward you with the emote.

Have fun doing the Manderville Mambo!
