Should you side with Sebastian or Ominis during In The Shadow of Time in Hogwarts Legacy?

Taking sides with friends is never fun.

Arguably, Hogwarts Legacy's most interesting side plot is your journey with Sebastian Sallow to find a cure for his sister. During one of those side quests, In The Shadow of Time, you'll be left with a choice at the end. You'll be able to choose whether to side with Sebastian or his friend, Ominis Gaunt, over what to do with a Dark Relic. You'll even be given the option to use an Unforgivable Curse, Imperio. Here are the consequences of your choices.

Should you use Imperio on Ominis during In The Shadow of Time in Hogwarts Legacy?

There are almost no story consequences for this choice. No matter what, you will leave the tomb with Sebastian and the Dark Relic and continue back to Feldcroft. Ominis will still be present through the rest of the side story, no matter what you do, even whether you decide to use Imperio or not. This decision will slightly change some of Ominis' responses to you later on in the questline.

If you haven't already learned Imperio from Sebastian, this may be your last opportunity to learn it. Ominis can teach it to you if you decide that using the curse on him is the best way to save their friendship. It can be a fairly powerful option for use in battle, particularly when used on stronger enemies, like Trolls.
