Hogwarts Legacy has a few different choices you can make at different points of the game. Penny, the house elf, has two different choices tied to her. Here are the outcomes of this choice.

Hogwarts Legacy is an action RPG set in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. In this game, you start Hogwarts as a fifth-year student. As you progress through the game, you learn more spells and take on harder and stronger enemies. The game focuses on giving you an experience of how it feels to be a student of Hogwarts.

Being an RPG, you will find many mechanics in the game, from gear management to spell choice. But the dialogue choice is usually the most important part of an RPG since it can change the story drastically depending on the game. In the Playstation-exclusive quest, you will get a choice of freeing the house elf Penny. Here are the outcomes of it.

All Penny Choices Outcome in Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy has a PS5 exclusive quest called “Minding Your Own Business.” In this quest, you come across the house elf Penny. After the quest, you are presented with two different options. These are the choices and their outcome:

  • Do not Set Penny Free: As a house elf, she will get contracted to you in the quest. So if you don’t set her free, she will stay bound to you and run the shop in the Hogsmead. You can visit her to sell your items there.
  • Set Penny Free: House-elves are set free when you give them clothes. So if you choose to set Penny free, your character will give her a hat. And she will be free. But she will not go anywhere. Instead, she will still stay and run the shop. The reason was she had always wanted to run a shop like that. But this time, when she runs the shop, she will wear the hat the player gave her.

So ultimately, the outcome is the same, no matter which one you choose. Ultimately, she will stay in the shop and look after it on your behalf.
