Why wizards and goblins are at odds in Harry Potter and Hogwarts Legacy

The relations between goblins and wizards in Harry Potter are strained, to say the least. Goblin rebellions against wizards are the main topics of the History of Magic course at Hogwarts, so apparently they were frequent enough to warrant entire courses, essays, and exams. They apparently took place mainly during the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries, but it is possible that there were more. There are many reasons for these rebellions, and there are probably more than what the books and movies let on. Apparently one of them is the fact that goblins aren't allowed to have wands. Others include wizards trying to control Gringotts bank, attempts to treat goblins as house-elves, and goblin-slaying wizards. If Hogwarts Legacy is canon, players get to see some of it with their own eyes.



However, one of the main reasons for goblin animosity towards wizards may be cultural disagreement. In the seventh book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, it is stated that goblins have a different idea of ​​property than wizards. Apparently, the goblins believe that wizards who buy goblin-made items are simply renting them out, and that the item should be returned to the goblin it was purchased from after the goblin's death. This is apparently an ingrained belief, long enough to have lasted for centuries, where wizards have supposedly told goblins that no, they won't actually get what they're buying. Given the way the goblins are so protective of their treasures and the things they produce, this certainly seems to draw some disgust.





Hogwarts Legacy players can apparently access Gringotts during a goblin rebellion

However, the fact that they can visit Gringotts while a goblin rebellion is brewing seems strange. All the events of the Harry Potter lore from the 1800s that Hogwarts Legacy will showcase are unknown, but this one seems important. If the goblins are rebelling against the wizards, the most logical first step seems to be to limit their access to the gold entrusted to them. Shutting down the bank or just tightening security to the point where it takes ages for wizards to make a withdrawal seems like a great way to make sure the goblins achieve their intended goal, so it seems odd that they aren't. One explanation is that the rebellion is still only a rumor when the visitation occurs, but that doesn't explain why there have been so many when it's apparently so easy to get what they want from the wizarding community.
