From Diablo 4 Wiki

Murmuring Obols are an account-bound currency that is mostly used for gambling at the Purveyor of Curiosities. They can also be used to buy Whispering Keys which are used to open Silent Chests.

How to Get Murmuring Obols

Murmuring Obols are acquired by:

  • Completing World Events
  • Cleansing cursed chests
  • Cleansing cursed shrines
  • Drops in Dungeons (as a Mumururing Cache containing 50 Obols!)

Total Obols indicators

Like gold, Obols do not take up an inventory slot, they are collected virtually in the inventory along with gold. You can see the amount you have when you expand your inventory screen.

To begin with, the maximum number of Obols you can hold in your inventory is 500, however, this can be increased by clicking on an Altar of Lilith. Doing so will increase the Obol capacity by 5.

Uses for Murmuring Obols


The main reason players will want to collect Murmuring Obols is to gamble at the Purveyor of Curiosities.

Players can select a gear type they want to gamble for at a cost of Obols. Each gear type has a different cost ranging from 25 Obols up to 75.

What you receive when you make the selection of gear type will be random and it may be a useful piece of gear or complete trash.

During the Diablo 4 beta. the chance of getting a decent item was increased when gambling.


The Purveyor of Curiosities also sells Whispering Keys which are used to open Silent Chests which can be found all around Sanctuary.

Trading Obols?

Murmuring Obols cannot be traded between players.
