If you’re a fan of being evil in video games then you’ll definitely enjoy Hogwarts Legacy. This is because you’re almost allowed to do as you please, messing with your fellow students and fighting against a plethora of magical creatures.

Naturally, if you’ve watched the Harry Potter films or read the books, you’ll know that all things aren’t exactly rosy in the wizarding world, and Dark Arts can be found everywhere. This spills into Hogwarts Legacy, allowing you to wield the Unforgivable Curses.

This guide will be focusing on probably the most famous Unforgivable Curse – Avada Kedavra, teaching you exactly what it is as well as how to get it in the game.

What is Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy?

If you’ve heard of the spell but aren’t actually sure what it does well, you’re in for a bit of a shock.

There’s a reason it is one of the Unforgivable Curses, and this is because Avada Kedavra is also known as the Killing Curse. Yes, that’s right, if you’re a wizard that uses this spell, you’ll be committing one of the biggest sins.

Once Avada Kedavra is cast, it cannot be blocked or countered using spells so if it hits its intended target, the subject is no more. If it does miss, however, it could also cause a fire thanks to the explosion on impact.

If you do want to go to the dark side so to speak, there are two ways in which you can get the Avada Kedavra spell.

The first of these is not actually in the main game. It is actually within the Dark Arts Arena that you can only experience if you decided to purchase the Deluxe Edition. When in the Arena, you’ll be able to use all of the Unforgivable Curses, including Avada Kedavra at free will as you battle against a variety of different foes.

The second way of acquiring Avada Kedavra, and the one required for you to be able to use it in the main Hogwarts Legacy game, is through the Sebastian Sallow relationship quest called In the Shadow of the Relic. This quest is only available in the later game and once you complete it, you will get your hands on the Killing Curse.

Even though Sebastian Sallow is in the Slytherin house, you, yourself don’t need to be sorted into it. You can be in any house and still be able to acquire and complete the quest, allowing you to get your hands on the Killing Curse.
