Hogwarts Legacy gives players an opportunity to learn Avada Kedavra, the most powerful Unforgivable Curse in the Harry Potter series. Of course, there are advantages to having this curse in the game, the most notable of which is the high tendency to kill enemies with a single strike. The question is, “How can you unlock Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy?” Here’s what you need to know.
Hogwarts Legacy: How to Unlock the Avada Kedavra Killing Curse
To unlock Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll need to complete a sequence of quests with Sebastian, a student from the Slytherin house. He has several quests, many of which advance the story. Unfortunately, the quest you specifically need to complete is called “In the Shadow of the Relic,” and it won’t become available until players reach the recommended level of 28.
After chasing Sebastian, you’ll have to choose between the following dialogues as part of the Shadow of the Relic quest:
- “Everyone should know about that curse”
- “Yes, please”
Note: It's easy to overlook this one, and if you make the wrong choices in dialogue, you won't be able to unlock the curse.
Following this, Sebastian will teach you the Avada Kedavra killing curse. Unlocking and activating it has no negative consequences, including no changes to the main story or any penalties. So make sure to utilize it properly in the open world of Hogwarts Legacy.
