Should You Side with Sebastian or Ominis In The Shadow of Time Hogwarts Legacy Quest

During The Shadow of Time quest in Hogwarts Legacy, players have the choice to either side with Sebastian or Ominis over what to do with a Dark Relic. Similar to a few other scenarios, picking the right option is crucial as it can affect the game's storyline. 

However, when faced with the decision to either side with Sebastian or Ominis, many players are uncertain of how to proceed. If you, too, are stuck at this checkpoint and seeking guidance, your search concludes here.

Siding with Sebastian during The Shadow of Time quest in Hogwarts Legacy will allow players to learn the second curse of the game, Imperio. Casting an Imperio at any person enables your character to control his mind and have him fight for you for a brief duration.

Consequently, if you choose the dialogue options "I cannot side with you. Sebastian's right." and "Yes, that's precisely what I'm suggesting.", you will need to use Imperio on Ominis in order to leave the catacomb. However, it's worth noting that selecting the "Never mind" dialogue instead of "Yes, that's precisely what I'm suggesting." will result in taking the Ominis' side.

Taking the Ominis' side will simply allow you to leave the catacomb. Therefore, if you select "Very well. Let's talk with Sebastian.", then you'll be leaving the catacomb in the next cutscene. However, if you've not learned Imperio earlier in The Shadow of Time quest, then we strongly recommend avoiding this dialogue, as you will have to wait until the end of the storyline to learn this curse.

In conclusion, choosing to side with Sebastian during the Shadow of Time quest in Hogwarts Legacy will allow players to learn the Imperio curse, which allows them to control the minds of others. However, if players choose to side with Ominis instead, they can simply leave the catacomb without learning the curse. Ultimately, the choice between Sebastian and Ominis will have consequences for players as they progress through the game.

So there you have it. That's everything you need to know about whether you should side with Sebastian or Ominis in Hogwarts Legacy.
