Hogwarts Legacy

How to get Avada Kedavra: Hogwarts Legacy's Killing Curse

Craig Robinson

Unforgivable spells are in Hogwarts Legacy, but, they are out of the way in the path of the Dark Wizard. As you progress through the story, and build your relationship with Sebastian, you will begin exploring his relationship with the Dark Arts. And, through these quests, Sebastian will inevitably teach you the unforgivable spells. For those looking to wield that power, especially the killing curse, here’s how to get Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy.

We teach you how to get the Avada Kedavra killing curse in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to get Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy

The good news is that you can get Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy. The bad news is that it is partly triggered towards the end of the main storyline. You will need to be level 25, nearing the end of the main storyline, progressing through Sebastian’s relationship story, before getting the “In The Shadow Of The Relic” quest. This will take you to Sebastian, who is looking for some power to fix Anna’s curse. You will get the quest via the owl system in the in-game menu.

Head over to the Catacombs, and follow the instructions through the mission as appropriate. Once you have done that, you eventually get to speak to Sebastian. Note, you will have a few dialogue options. You can guarantee to learn the Avada Kedavra spell by pressing these two dialogue options:

  1. Everyone should know the curse
  2. Yes

Pressing both of these options will 100% teach you the spell. After that, do the spell puzzle shape, and you will unlock the spell. After that, you can use it on your enemies, killing regular living creatures.

Note you can also get other unforgivable spells in Hogwarts legacy. You can get Crucio via the “In The Shadow Of Time” and Imperio via the “In The Shadow Of Study” quest. Both of these are Sebastian quests, which unlock much earlier in his storyline. You can pursue the relationship quests after you complete the broom quests, and you’ve been introduced to the characters.
