It probably won’t surprise you to learn that quite a few Hogwarts Legacy players have found themselves tempted by the Dark Arts. It also probably won’t surprise you to learn that a Dark Arts build can be incredibly powerful in Hogwarts Legacy.
At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with picking up all 14 Talents available to you in the Dark Arts Talent tree. Not only do those talents buff the effects of the Unforgivable Curses (the core spells in this build), but they synergize with your three flex spells: Expelliarmus, Arresto Momentum, and Flipendo. Before long, you’ll be cursing multiple enemies at once and clearing them out with a well-timed Avada Kedavra. Of course, many of them probably won’t live long enough to see that spell given the power of the game’s upgraded “Curse” effect.
I recommend splitting your remaining points between the Room of Requirement and Core Talent Trees, but (as noted above) there’s also something to be said for investing in some stealth skills. The Spells tree is largely skippable in this build, though, given that you’re relying on a very specific set of spells. Again, though, it’s hard to go wrong once you’ve got the core pieces in place.
