How to Learn Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy

Warner Bros. Games

Hogwarts Legacy offers players the chance to learn a wide variety of spells, including the deadly Avada Kedavra. Here's how to learn it.

Hogwarts Legacy, the latest RPG from Warner Bros. Games, takes players into the Wizarding World of the 1800s. With an original story, players find themselves as students beginning their journey at Hogwarts as fifth years. Throughout the game, players will visit a variety of locations, new and familiar, encounter magical creatures and learn a wide selection of spells to aid their journey.

One crucial curse which players can learn is Avada Kedavra — the Killing Curse. But, such a powerful spell requires a bit of work in order to perfect. Here's how to unlock Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to Unlock Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy

In order to unlock and learn Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy, players will need to complete a series of quests as part of Sebastian Sallow's questline.

Not all of these quests are mandatory, but the one which players will need to complete is “In The Shadow Of The Relic.” In order to access this quest though, players will need to reach level 28. The quest has players moving through a cave filled with Inferi and, after a battle, players will be given the option to learn Avada Kedavra.

Given that this is a higher requirement than that of the game's final Main Quest, most players will likely obtain this spell as an endgame addition.

Hogwarts Legacy launches on Feb. 10 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game launches on April 4 for PS4 and Xbox One, then July 25 for Nintendo Switch.
