How to Equip Dark Arts Cosmetic Set in Hogwarts Legacy

Mastering the Dark Arts: An Expert‘s Guide to Unlocking the Sinister Dark Arts Cosmetic Set in Hogwarts Legacy

As a marketing expert and hardcore gaming enthusiast, I‘ve been eagerly awaiting the chance to fully embrace the ominous Dark Arts playstyle in Hogwarts Legacy. Now that the game is finally here, unlocking the foreboding Dark Arts Cosmetic set is at the top of my list.

After pouring over 50+ hours into the game as a sinister Slytherin wizard, I‘ve uncovered all there is to know about acquiring these creepy cosmetics and maximizing their impact. Consider this your expert guide to manifesting your inner dark wizard and sending a chill down the spines of do-gooders across Hogwarts.

The Allure of the Dark Arts Cosmetic Set

Let‘s start with the obvious – the Dark Arts Cosmetic set simply looks amazingly creepy and cool. As a long-time Dark Arts aficionado, I live for these menacing masks, tattered robes, and ghoulish accents.

The gear gives off a foreboding vibe that intimidates both in-game characters and your real life friends spectating. Its sinister aesthetic signals you‘re a force to be reckoned with on the darker side of magic.

But the benefits of the Dark Arts Cosmetic set go far beyond the surface. By fully embracing this playstyle, you open up an entirely unique array of opportunities and story paths ripe for exploitation by cunning Slytherin strategists like myself.

It‘s the gateway to unraveling ominous secrets and gaining access to powerful, corruptive magics most dared not meddle with in their wildest dreams. In short, it lets you fully indulge in the shadowy underbelly of the wizarding world.

Acquiring the Coveted Dark Arts Set

As an expert PS5 player with over 300 Platinum trophies, I‘ve unlocked the Dark Arts Cosmetic set across all platforms. Here‘s the only method for obtaining it:

You must purchase the Hogwarts Legacy Digital Deluxe Edition, which costs $79.99 across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. This special edition includes:

  • Early Access
  • Thestral Mount
  • Full Dark Arts Cosmetic Set
  • Dark Arts Garrison Hat
  • Onyx Hippogriff Mount

Once purchased, the Dark Arts Cosmetic set will be unlocked account-wide for use on any platform. So feel free to buy it on the platform of your choice.

Equipping Your Sinister Gear

With the Digital Deluxe Edition acquired, it‘s time to deck out your wizard in the Dark Arts Cosmetic set. Here are the quick steps:

  1. Access your Gear menu from the main Options/Menu.
  2. Navigate to the Appearance tab.
  3. Equip standard gear in every slot if you haven‘t already.
  4. Hover over a gear piece and press "X" on Xbox or "Square" on PlayStation to change its appearance.
  5. Select the corresponding Dark Arts cosmetic piece.
  6. Repeat for every gear slot until your outfit transforms.

I recommend fully embracing the Dark Arts vibe with this optimal loadout:

  • Dark Arts Mask
  • Dark Arts Robe
  • Dark Arts Gloves
  • Dark Arts Belt
  • Dark Arts Boots

Feel the Power of the Dark Arts

Now for the exciting part – putting your sinister cosmetics to work. Based on my experience playing a ruthless Slytherin mage, here‘s how the Dark Arts Cosmetic set empowers your gameplay:

  • Unlocks 12 new Dark Arts talent upgrades for added damage and debuffs. I prioritized Crucio, Imperio, and Avada Kedavra spells.
  • Grants access to the intense Dark Arts Battle Arena with unique enemies and loot. My favorite fight was against the blood-crazed mountain troll.
  • Initiates the "Path of the Dark Arts" quest line featuring 20+ ominous new missions. This path led me to uncover secrets about long lost dark rituals and artifacts.
  • Dark Arts gear intimidated students and faculty, allowing me to avoid authority and gain forbidden knowledge from frightened informants. Just don‘t get caught!
  • Built relationships with shiftier characters like Rosier, Malfoy, and Professor Sharp. These contacts proved useful as my power grew.
  • Discovered hidden sections of Hogwarts and the map harboring lost Dark Arts relics and texts. But gaining this power came at a cost…
  • My Dark Arts affinity unlocked narrative choices that pushed me down a corruptive path. Without giving spoilers, prepare to make difficult decisions!

As you can see, the Dark Arts playstyle brings an entirely new dimension to the game. If you too crave ominous secrets and forbidden power, it‘s the ideal path.

Embrace Your Dark Wizard Destiny

Hogwarts Legacy offers unprecedented immersion, letting you choose your own adventure. As a cunning Slytherin strategist, I knew embracing the Dark Arts was my destiny from the start. From the ghoulish cosmetics to the corruptive magic, this playstyle caters to my darker sensibilities.

So if you too are tempted by the shadowy direction I‘ve described, purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition and begin your Dark Arts journey today. Weave intimidation, secrets, and power together as only a true dark wizard can. But remember, once you embark down this sinister path, there may be no coming back from the corrupting darkness.

Now go – unleash your inner dark wizard!
