Should You Keep the Repository Contained?

The decision to keep it contained or open it in Hogwarts Legacy comes down to whether or not you want your character to go down a morally just path or a more evil-leaning one. The two dialogue decisions are as shown below:

  • I intend to keep it contained here.
  • I intend to open it.

If you choose the first decision, then the Ancient Magic will be sealed and remain hidden. You will become the Keeper of Ancient Magic but Professor Fig will die while ensuring it will be sealed. Choose this option if you intend to follow a righteous path and see your student as someone who would not risk losing control of a dangerous force.

If you intend to open it, then the second decision is the one to go for. Then, the Repository will be opened and you will gain access to the Ancient Magic for your own use. You will reassure Professor Fig, stating that you will use it for good. He will not seem certain about this and will end up dying as Ranrock causes the cave to collapse in on itself. As you can see, some things remain the same such as Professor Fig’s death, but your character’s path as a witch or wizard will change.

Ultimately, it boils down to whether you want your character to have a good or a bad ending. For instance, keeping the Repository contained will seal the Ancient Magic away for good, thus giving you a good ending. Meanwhile, opening the Repository will give you unfettered access to the Ancient Magic inside, which essentially turns you into an evil, power-hungry sorcerer. Of course, the choice is ultimately yours, though it’s important to note that this choice has a huge impact on the ending of your playthrough.

Now that you know the answer to should you keep the Repository contained or open it in Hogwarts Legacy, you can continue down the path you choose for your student. Either way, if you open or contain it, the story will largely be the same.
