The Shadow of Time is all about acquiring a Relic to cure Anne in Hogwarts Legacy. Below are some guides for the Shadow Of Time in Hogwarts Legacy that you shouldn’t miss.
Sebastian has arguably one of the best series of quests in Hogwarts Legacy. While most of them are side quests, some of them are actually included in the main quests and players can’t proceed further in the story without exploring their relationship with Sebastian.
In the Shadow of Time side quest in Hogwarts Legacy, Sebastian will mention a lost Relic inside a Catacomb and maybe that item can save his sister, Anne. The Relic is suspected to grant its holder the power to reverse Dark Magic, which may be the cause of Anne’s sickness.
In The Shadow Of Time Quest In Hogwarts Legacy
To start In the Shadow of Time quest in Hogwarts Legacy, meet Sebastian next to the Feldcroft Catacomb Floo Flame and initiate a conversation with him.
This Catacomb is filled with various spider and their webs cover a lot of space. Some of these places have some chests or hidden areas behind them, so be sure to clear all the spider webs around the Catacomb.
The first real puzzle starts after a couple of rooms, where players must open a door covered with skeletons to proceed deeper into the Catacomb. To open it, the protagonist needs to find three skeletons hidden across the chamber and feed them to the skeleton gate. The skeletons can be relocated using Accio or Wingardium Leviosa.
After learning Wingardium Leviosa, casting Accio at objects and relocating their position will auto-cast Wingardium Leviosa, allowing players to move the object freely.
The first skeleton is available in plain sight, on a table in the middle of the chamber.
The room is filled with drawers that fall to the ground when players cast Accio on them. Behind these drawers, there are mostly some coins or items that may be important in Hogwarts Legacy. But behind one of these drawers, lies more skeleton keys.
To find the third skeleton, players must locate another destructible door east of the skeleton gate. Use any spell to break it and move through it to another small chamber.
Inside, cast Accio to take off more drawers and find the third skeleton and feed it to the skeleton main gate.
After feeding all three skeletons, the gate will open its way for players to proceed further in the Catacomb. For people that like to explore, this chamber still carries a secret passage that leads to some precious loot.
After going deeper, Sebastian will stress how dangerous this Catacomb is and suggest teaching the student Imperio. Here, players have two choices:
- I’d prefer not to learn the Imperius Curse
- Yes, I’d like to learn the Imperius Curse
The next puzzle also contains a skeleton gate. To find the next skeleton keys, search for a wall that has two drawings on it. Each drawing represents the handle players need to pull to open it.
Next, players simply have to find the handle with the corresponding drawing as the ones etched on the gate.
After a fierce battle with some strong enemies, players finally can locate the Relic alongside a note that states it’s dangerous to move it outside this Catacomb.
At that moment, players must decide whether they should take or keep the Relic by choosing:
- We should leave the Relic alone
- We need that Relic
Eventually, Ominis will make an appearance, declaring he will not allow Sebastian to leave with the Relic, and players are once again left with multiple choices that affect how the duo will handle Ominis opposing their plans.
As previously planned, after both Sebastian and the student make it out of the Catacomb, they go to Feldcroft to visit Anne. On the way back, Sebastian hears Ranrok Loyalists’ screams and knows that his hometown is in danger.
A big battle will happen between players and a group of Ranrok Loyalists. During combat, Anne will be in danger and Sebastian will cast Imperio to save her life.
Speaking with Sebastian will grant players the choice to either support his actions or go against him by picking one of these two choices:
- You did the right thing
- It may have been the wrong choice
Sebastian’s uncle is also disappointed in him casting Imperio, and it seems that the relationship between him, Anne, and Sebastian will only get worse from now on. To finish In the Shadow of Time quest, the protagonist will attempt to mend the relationship between Sebastian and his uncle by speaking to the latter. The available dialogue options are:
- Sebastian saved his sister
- Sebastian went too far
Both choices will fail alongside a threat to turn both Sebastian and the protagonist in if the uncle found out they used Dark Arts again.
