How to Unlock Imperius Curse, Sebastian Sallow Imperio Quest In the Shadow of Time

So, your twisted mind wants to learn the way of the Dark Arts of the wizarding world in Hogwarts Legacy? And you want to master the unspeakably atrocious Unforgivable Curses? Well, then – read on! In Hogwarts Legacy, the Unforgivable Curses can be learned via a series of quests in Sebastian Sallow’s quest line. The questline is called “Dark Legacy”, and it consists of three subquests, each of which will unlock one of the three iconic Unforgivable Curses. Read our Crucio Curse and Avada Kedavra guides to learn how to unlock those two curses.

However, when it comes to Imperio, here’s what you need to do. To unlock the Imperius Curse in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll need to complete the second quest in Sebastian Sallow’s questline. However, Sebastian Sallow Imperio Quest will not immediately start upon completing the first part. Called “In the Shadow of Time”, you’ll actually have to wait a bit before Sebastian initiates this part of the questline.

Thus, the best course of action here is to complete a few side quests and ensure you’re at least level 17. At some point, this will randomly trigger the “In the Shadow of Time” quest, and Sebastian Sallow will send you a follow-up letter which you can find in your Owl Post. From there, simply complete the second quest, and you will unlock Imperio!
