It is worth mentioning that only the Purveyor of Curiosities will contain Whispering Key with her as they are not available anywhere else. Furthermore, there is an upper bound to how many Obols you can keep at once. Hence, try to buy a key whenever you get the chance.

The vendor, Purveyor of Curiosities, is present in every main city of Diablo 4. There are eight of these locations which players can visit to buy the Whispering Key. Adding to that, these places are accessible in the early game, so you always have access to valuable loot.

By looking at the map, players can identify the Purveyor of Curiosities location by looking at the money bag icon with a question mark on it. Keeping a way-point to their spots can be helpful if you are far away from them.

What Are Silent Chests

These chests vary from the normal ones due to their gold chains which are glowing. A Silent Chest contains precious loot useful during combat. As mentioned already, you must have a Key for opening these chests.

Items inside these chests are random, so we can not predict what to find in them. We suggest that you always keep at least a couple of Whispering Keys on you as they are useful to unlock Silent Chests mid-fight, like against the Forces of Lilith.

Techniques To Farm Murmuring Obols

It is understandable if players are unable to always gather a significant number of Obols. Therefore, we gathered several ways in which you can collect enough Obols to buy a Whispering Key. 

  • Completing Events: If you see an orange circle on your map, it identifies an event. Completing the event will reward you with many items, including the Murmuring Obols for buying Whispering Key.
  • Challenging Tasks: There are challenging tasks such as exploring a hidden location or winning against a tough enemy. Completing them will also grant you Obols.
  • Murmuring Caches: Open these Caches to find inside 50 Murmuring Obols, which are enough to buy a couple of Whispering Keys.

Summing It Up

This is all about Whispering Key in Diablo 4. Keep in mind that there is no limit to how many Keys you can store at once. However, a maximum of 500 Obols can be with you. Therefore, try to keep as many Whispering Keys as possible.
