The sole purpose of a Whispering Key in Diablo 4 is to open Silent Chests. However, finding these keys can be a hassle. Moreover, I had to collect a specific currency to get the Whispering Key. To learn more about it, follow the guide below.

Key Takeaways

  • Whispering Keys are used to open Silent Chests, which surely contain valuable loot.
    • The Key is available at the Purveyor of Curiosities vendor for 20 Murmuring Obols.
  • During my gameplay, I found out that there is no limit to how many Keys you can keep at a time.
  • I recommend you to keep multiple Whispering Keys with you at all times. This is a precaution as Silent Chest appears randomly, and not opening them is not a wise choice.

How To Find Whispering Key

  1. When I was searching for Whispering Keys, I found them at a vendor known as the Purveyor of Curiosities.
  2. The vendor is a young woman who will sell you multiple items if you are willing to spend Murmuring Obols.
  3. Following that, she will give you a Key in exchange for 20 Murmuring Obols.
  4. It is worth mentioning that only the Purveyor of Curiosities will contain Whispering Key with her as they are not available anywhere else.
  5. There is a maximum limit of Obols you can keep at a time. I advise you to buy Whispering Keys frequently and not spend Murmuring Obols somewhere else.

Vendor Locations

The vendor, Purveyor of Curiosities, is present in every main city of Diablo 4. From what I experienced, you can visit eight of these locations 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, you can identify the Purveyor of Curiosities location at the money bag icon with a question mark on it. I will recommend you to keep a way-point to their spots, as it 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.

Ways 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. 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Murmuring Caches: Open these Caches to find inside 50 Murmuring Obols, which are enough to buy a couple of Whispering Keys.

My Thoughts

During my gameplay of Diablo 4, I learned that keeping a couple of Whispering Keys at all times is a wise choice. Silent Chests tend to appear at unexpected moments. Hence, not having a Key at that time can be disappointing. I will advise the viewers to keep their Murmuring Obols reserved for buying Whispering Keys. There is a maximum limit of Obols you can keep at a time. So, ensure you visit the vendor frequently!
