How To Use Crucio
|About 20 sec.||- Causes most enemies to take damage over time|
- Cursed enemies take extra damage
|Talent Name||Crucio Mastery（Required：Lv16）|
|Effect||Striking an enemy cursed by Crucio releases a projectile that curses a nearby enemy.|
Crucio Mastery can be obtained by unlocking Dark Arts Talents. Hitting an enemy with Crucio casts a curse spell at nearby enemies. You can curse many enemies, making it easier to deal damage.
More Powerful When Combined With Avada Kedavra
|Talents Required For The Combo|
|Talent ①||Avada Kedavra Mastery（Required：Lv22）|
Killing an enemy with Avada Kedavra kills all cursed enemies.
|Talent ②||Crucio Mastery（Required：Lv16）|
Striking an enemy cursed by Crucio releases a projectile that curses a nearby enemy.
- Cast Crucio
- Attack the enemy hit by Crucio to spread the curse
- Cast Avada Kedavra
- Drink Focus Potion (may not be necessary depending on how many enemies you have left)
- Repeat Step ① to ④
Crucio Mastery spreads the curse when attacking an enemy hit by Crucio. So first cast Crucio and attack that enemy. Spreading the curse would kill numerous enemies at once when you follow it up with Avada Kedavra.
Greatly Reduce Cooldown Time With Focus Potion
Drinking Focus Potion reduces the cooldown time of Avada Kedavra to approximately 30 seconds. If there are a lot of enemies left after the first Avada Kedavra, you can drink the Focus Potion and cast Avada Kedavra repeatedly.

Forbidden Spells Were Legal In The Past

However, since Hogwarts Legacy takes place in the past, these spells are frequently used in battles.
