Are you interested in learning all the curses in Hogwarts Legacy ? If so, you'll be pleased to know that you have the opportunity to learn three of the most powerful dark spells in the wizarding world, known as the Unforgivable Curses: Crucio, Empire, and Avada Kedavra.
Historically, the three Unforgivable Curses— Crucio, Empire, and Avada Kedavra —were classified as illegal and unforgivable by the Ministry of Magic in 1717, and the use of these curses led to dire consequences. However, in the Hogwarts Legacy game, you can cast these curses with no consequences.
If you want to explore the Dark Arts , this guide to the Unforgivable Curses will explain how to unlock them and what each spell does in the Hogwarts legacy.
It is important to note that these spells are completely optional in the game and are not taught in main quests or required classes.
You also have the option to ignore each of the quests associated with the Unforgivable Curses. If you want to find these quests , you need to interact with a Slytherin classmate named Sebastian Sallow and follow his questline .
How to learn all unforgivable curses
How to unlock Crucio
To unlock the Crucio spell, you must start the quest called "In the Shadow of the Study".
When you meet Sebastian outside the Slytherin common room, he will tell you that only one member of the Gaunt family knows the location of the scriptorium entrance. You must convince a reluctant Ominis Gaunt to help you.
To pull yourself out of the locked door of the Slytherin Scriptorium, you must light the flames of the three nearby incinerators. Once inside the Slytherin Scriptorium , you will come across two interactive objects near a locked door. One of them is part of a series of notes left by the Night Gaunt.
It is important to note that you will not be able to return once you have passed through the gate. To the right of the note you will find broken debris that you must repair using the repair spell. Then talk to Ominis to open the door leading to the next room. To access the rooms with the Slytherin lock puzzles, you need to find the corresponding symbols to solve the puzzle.
Note that if you don't enter the correct symbols before the snake in the lock makes a full rotation, you will be attacked. During your exploration of the maze, also pay attention to the three additional notes from Noctua what will you find In the next part of the maze, after you pass the third door, you will find Noctua's last note near a locked door with the word "Crucio" written on it on the floor.
There, Sebastian will offer to teach you the spell or cast it on yourself . From there you will have the option to accept or decline the offer. If you decide to learn the spell, you can choose either the second or third option to do so.
Once you've completed the rest of the quest, you can assign the Crucio spell to one of your combat areas. By casting this spell, your enemy Han will be cursed and feel intense pain, taking continuous damage over time. Additionally, the attacks you land on it will deal additional damage.
If you invest a talent point in Crucio's Mastery , you will be able to enhance your spell and launch, in addition to the curse, a projectile that will affect a nearby enemy.
How to unlock Empire
If you want to unlock the empire spell , you need to start the quest with the same name. Once inside the catacomb, you'll encounter several enemy spiders , so it can be useful to have fire-based spells, such as Incendio or Bombarda, to fight and break through the web.
During your journey, you must collect student journal entries , which will explain how to get past the barricades and get to the relic. To do this, we recommend using the Accio spell, which allows you to move collections of bones and build bridges or arches to advance to the next room.
Later you will have a conversation with Sebastian where he will tell you about the Imperius Curse and offer to teach you this spell. You will have the option to accept or decline their offer. If you decide to learn the spell, you will be able to equip it to a spell immediately.
When you cast the Empire spell on an enemy, you can temporarily take control of their mind and force them to fight other enemies. During this period, the cursed target will take less damage from other enemies present.
It is important to mention that even after the spell expires, the enemy will still be cursed and take additional damage.
How to unlock Avada Kedavra
Quest: "In the Shadow of the Relic" (Suggested Level: 28)
If you wish to unlock the powerful Avada kedavra spell, you must undertake the quest "In the Shadow of the Relic" . When you talk to the Ominis in the catacombs, make sure you're prepared to fight Inferi and spiders using fire-based spells.
As you progress further into the catacombs, you will face an intense battle that will require your utmost concentration, especially to defeat the boss and avoid being overwhelmed by waves of Inferi.
When you exit the catacomb, talk to Sebastian and choose the second option, "Everyone should know that curse." Doing so will give you the opportunity to have Sebastian teach you Avada Kedavra, as long as you accept the offer and are willing to face the consequences of mastering such a powerful spell.
Avada Kedavra is a spell that causes instant death to enemies , regardless of the number of hit points, although it does not work on the final boss of the mission.

If at any point you 've managed to learn any of the three Unforgivable Curses, but you later change your mind, you still have a chance to unlock them after completing the main questline. To do this, talk to Sebastian in the Undercroft, as long as he's around, and ask him to teach you.
