An Easy Guide for Learning Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy

Avada Kedavra is one of the strongest spells in Hogwarts Legacy which has the ability to one-shot and kill any opponent which is also the reason why it’s referred to as “the killing curse”. It is the last Unforgivable Curse that you can learn so if you haven’t learnt it yet, read on below.

To unlock Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy, you need to complete the side quest “In the Shadow of the Relic.” This is one of the final missions in Sebastian Sallow’s side questline and he’ll teach you the spell once the main story of the game is more or less complete.

Before you start the quest, the game will suggest you to be Level 28 so make sure you’re above or at that level. In order to do the quest, you must have completed the following questline:

  • The relationship quest “In the Shadow of Hope”
  • The main story quest “Lodgok’s Loyalty”

Near the end of “In the Shadow of the Relic”, you’ll have to interact with Sebastian Sallows outside the dungeon. During this time, you’ll be prompted to choose an option when you’re having a conversation with Sallows. There’ll be two options which are:

  • No one should know that curse.
  • Everyone should know that curse.

Choose the second option “Everyone should know that curse” in order to get the desired outcome. After that, Sallows will offer you with teaching the killing curse a.k.a Avada Kedavra and you’ll be presented with two more choices which are:

  • Now is not the time.
  • Yes please.

The options speak for themselves so choose the second option “Yes please.” and you’ll be able to learn the killing curse effectively.

If you choose the first option “Now is not the time” then don’t worry, you’ll be able to learn it later on in the game. If you make certain story choices in specific quests, then you’ll be able to learn it. Read on below to find out how.

In Sebastian’s next relationship quest “In the Shadow of Fate”, you’ll be presented with two choices when having a conversation with Ominis Gaunt which are:

  • We should turn Sebastian in.
  • We must not turn Sebastian in.

If you want to learn Avada Kedavra, then choose the second option “We must not turn Sebastian in.”

If you choose the second option, and complete Sallow’s entire relationship questline, then you’ll be able to meet him later in the Undercroft and he’ll offer to teach you any of the Unforgivable Curses that you’ve previously missed which includes Avada Kedavra. So don’t worry, if you missed out on learning it the first time.
