Why Harry didn't destroy the horocrux in the Lestrange vault?

Recommended Posts


Hello to all,
Like a lot of you here, I think i read the HP series about a million times. Just yesterday i read the Deathly Hallows and i was thinking: Why Harry didn't just destroyed  the cup when he was in the Lestrange vault in Gringotts? He had the sword in hand...


What do you think?


Thank you :)

I think simply that they had to get in and get out, and wouldn’t know what sort of curses or charms the vault would have. Having everything multiply as you touch it didn’t really help. 😁


I’d want to get straight out of there to a place of safety to destroy something!

I think it's because he wanted to keep the Horcrux a secret from the goblins. We already know they're crafty - who knows what they'd do with that knowledge.

All the items that were multiplying, were all burning them. I'd be too busy getting away from them t even think about destroying the Horcrux. Besides that, they never told Griphook when he would get the sword, so I guess they thought they could do it later on.

      Hey Wizarding Community.
      I hope we're all coping as best as we can, and staying as safe as possible.
      I got myself thinking about magical objects and inventions from the Wizarding World. And I wondered what object you would bring over from the Wizarding World to use in the Muggle World. It could be anything ever mentioned in the Wizarding World (yes, even a wand!).
      I thought long and hard about this, but I think I'd go for the fireworks Fred and George use in Order of the Phoenix. Personally, I'd love to see if you could make a silent version of them, but I think they're so cool. Imagine if your neighbours get annoying - you can just silence them with a dragon firework.

      I'd love to know what object you'd bring!
