Crucio Choices

As you progress through the main story, you will encounter a quest known as “In The Shadow of The Study” in the quest line of Sebastian Sallow. In this quest, you have to convince Ominis Gaunt to show you the entrance to Slytherin’s Scriptorium. Inside that scriptorium, you will learn Crucio Spell from Sebestian.

Once you have completed the snake puzzles and opened all three doors, they will lead you to a small room where you will be trapped. According to Sebastian, the door of this room can only be opened by casting Crucio. Then you will be presented with choices which are explained below:

The First Choice

“Vey well. I don’t want to learn the Cruciatus Curse.”

However, once this spell has been cast on you, then it will reduce your health bar massively, and the door will open. Also, by selecting the first choice, your character will not be able to learn the Crucio Spell.

The Second Choice
