It's the only one that serves us so much lore in a more composed, neutral, and less black and white fashion (it still is though). It told us so much about ishgardian lore and current climate and changes... And it actually has meat besides ping pong quests to kill x mobs because of silly reasons.
I want more of those.
I wholeheartedly agree. I hate Hildebrand with a burning passion. Hated him ever since 1.0, and he's only gotten worse with time. In my opinion, the one good thing that ever came of his questline was the Scholasticate spinoff. I like the tone of it and the lore it provides of Ishgardian culture is interesting to me. Not saying it's the best writing ever, it's just better than the crap that spawned it.
Different strokes for different folks, of course.
