I just finished the latest addition to the Hildibrand Quest line. I'm not particularly fond of his character but I enjoy the idea that Square does have a creative click for comic relief.
One can get burned out from running content and grinding for end game gear/materials so it's nice to have something like this for a breather.
If you haven't started the Hildibrand quest line yet, you're missing out on quite a lot. The quests are definitely worth a few laughs. They may not be world breaking in comedic terms but it's enough to make you feel at ease and relax.
Plus, if you finish each chapter of the quest line, you get to acquire new pets/novelty items and emotes that you can use for stupid fun with your in-game friends.
For 2.5, you can start the new chapter of the quest line by talking to Ellie Near the Gladiator's guild entrance in Ul'dah.
