Finally, we get our chance to be a wizard in the latest Hogwarts Legacy game. There is definitely a lot of freedom involved in the latest Harry Potter game, from creating a custom character to quests. Which might lead you to ask: can you kill people in Hogwarts Legacy?

Granted, we are not recommending that is the best course of action in the game, but you are indeed free to learn some quite dangerous spells. So, one might be wondering if said spells can be used to dispose of other wizards or creatures quickly.

A pretty fair question, for sure, so let's take a look and try to understand how far we can take our evil doing in Hogwarts Legacy.

Can you kill people in Hogwarts Legacy?

Yes, you can kill people in Hogwarts Legacy using the "Avada Kedavra" spell. However, it specifically affects only enemies, not key characters like students or professors, who remain unaffected by such dark spells, even if used in their presence.

It's worth noting that the spell doesn't work on certain bosses due to their importance to the story. While the game allows for the use of dark arts, it sets boundaries to maintain narrative integrity and character immortality for essential figures in the storyline.

What happens when you kill someone in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy doesn't include a traditional morality system found in games like Red Dead Redemption. This means players' actions, including the use of dark spells like Avada Kedavra, won't affect the game world or character development through a moral lens.

How to get Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy

You can get Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy in two ways. One is about parting with your money by buying the "Deluxe Edition", the other is playing through the end of the game, basically.

Among other features, this edition includes the Dark Arts Battle Arena. In the arena, you can learn and unleash the taboo spell against enemies. The Deluxe Edition, which lets you do several wizard war crimes is priced at $79.99 at launch.

Want to save some money? Players of the standard edition also can learn the spell towards the end of the game in a quest involving Sebastian Sallow. If you befriend the student, you can research the dark arts, thus unlocking some forbidden knowledge.

While it is possible to use Avada Kedavra outside of arena fights, be mindful that it involves a pretty long cooldown period before it can be used again.
