Using them multiple times in the main game does not appear to have any consequences whatsoever. Even when you’re in the middle of a story quest, using these spells does not trigger a conversation with characters or show that your character is going down a dark path.

It’s natural to be cautious about this, especially because the developers have hinted that your choices for completing specific tasks in the game and the overall progression can influence the outcome. Thankfully, regularly using any of these three spells against your enemies does not appear to be a problem. Although, it does cause your character to utter the name of these curses in a dark tone, hinting at the potential path they’ve chosen. Your character can cause a negative relationship to build up with other characters based on the choice they make for certain side quests, though.
