Hogwarts Legacy is the perfect game to explore the dark side of our characters or witness the wizarding world as a villain following the beliefs of intriguing characters such as Voldemort or Bellatrix. The dark magic and evil forces are part of the Hogwarts Legacy, including the Unforgivable Curses. This Guide represents the Crucio curse and how to get it. Also, some vital information related to Dark Arts, Arena and related quests.
Can I use the Crucio spell and unforgivable Curses without restrictions?
The game doesn’t offer a mortality system, so you can freely be rude to NPC characters or cast unforgivable curses. However, if you decide to go the Evil Wizard path, various cut scenes and dialogue will play differently in some cases. So if you plan on having multiple playthroughs, you should try Dark Wizard path in one of them.
In Hogwarts Legacy, you can’t become an actual villain, either. The game is designed to put the player on a path to saving the world; your character is the only one who can accomplish it.
How to Unlock Crucio Curse Guide
You can unlock the Crucio curse during one of your companions, Sebastian Swallow’s questline. Worth to remember that the quests start only when you reach a certain level. Check below the level requirements for the Crucio spell.
