The trio learn from Xenophilius Lovegood that the symbol they have encountered represents the three Deathly Hallows: the Elder Wand, the Resurrection Stone, and the Invisibility Cloak. Xenophilius tells them about the Deathly Hallows and the story of the Three Brothers who each took respective "gifts" from Death. When pressed about Luna's absence, Lovegood admits that Death Eaters abducted her. Hoping for Luna's return, he has alerted Death Eaters of the trio's whereabouts, but the trio escape. Shortly after this escape, Harry figures out that the Invisibility Cloak is one of the Deathly Hallows.

Soon after, Harry accidentally uses the name of Voldemort, and the trio are captured by a gang of Voldemort's followers and taken to Malfoy Manor, where they join the imprisoned Luna, Dean, Ollivander, and Griphook. Finding Gryffindor's Sword among the trio's possessions, Bellatrix Lestrange fears they have broken into her Gringotts vault, and tortures Hermione for information. Help arrives in the form of Dobby, who apparates into the cellar and rescues Luna, Dean and Ollivander. This attracts the attention of Lucius Malfoy, who summons Wormtail to the cellar to check on the prisoners. As he enters the cellar, Harry and Ron attack Wormtail.[HP4] Harry reminds Wormtail of his life debt after Harry saved his life.[HP3] Wormtail hesitates and is subsequently strangled to death by his own silver hand for his betrayal. Harry and Ron rush upstairs to rescue Hermione; Ron disarms Bellatrix and Harry takes Draco Malfoy's wand. Dobby reappears, and they disapparate to Bill and Fleur Weasley's cottage; Dobby is struck by a knife during the escape, and dies afterwards. Voldemort, having been alerted to Harry being captured, arrives at Malfoy Manor almost immediately after Harry escapes and tortures the remaining Death Eaters. He then leaves them, goes to Hogwarts, and takes the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's tomb.

At the cottage, Ollivander confirms the Elder Wand's existence and says that a wand can transfer allegiance if its owner is defeated or disarmed. Ollivander adds a caveat: although the Elder Wand is unbeatable, its master is not. Bellatrix's behaviour convinces the trio that another Horcrux is hidden in the Lestrange vault. Aided by Griphook, they penetrate Gringotts' defences and retrieve Hufflepuff's Cup, although they lose the sword to Griphook in the process. The trio escape Gringotts on the back of a guard dragon. Voldemort is then informed of the theft of the cup, and realises that his Horcruxes are being destroyed; through his mental connection to Harry, he unintentionally reveals that another Horcrux is hidden at Hogwarts.
