If you’ve heard that gambling is back in Diablo 4, you’re no doubt wondering how to get Murmuring Obols, Whispering keys, and open silent chests. This new in-game currency Blizzard is introducing will be your key to playing a game of chance for some fantastic rewards.
In this guide we’ll walk you through how to get Murmuring Obols, and how you can spend them to get Whispering keys and unlock Silent Chests.
How to get Murmuring Obols in Diablo 4
In Diablo 4, there’s currently only one guaranteed way to get Murmuring Obols, and that is to complete World Events. These are random events that involve taking down waves of enemies for a short period of time, usually a few minutes. You’ll receive 20 Murmuring Obols for completing a World Event in Diablo 4. They’re also one of a few great ways to get gold fast in the game.
World Events pop up fairly regularly as you’re out exploring Sanctuary. They appear on the map as an orange triangle with three dots. As you get nearer, the triangle turns into an orange circle, denoting the area in which the event takes place. To start a World event, step into the orange ring. An on-screen message will confirm that the event has started.
You can then spend Murmuring Obols to gamble for loot at Curiosity Vendors dotted around Sanctuary. If you’re hopping into the Diablo 4 server slam beta, visit Lizveth, the Purveyor of Curiosities, located in southeast Kyovashad, south of the Blacksmith and southeast of the Kyovashad Waypoint.

Here’s a list of Murmuring Obols costs for each weapon type gamble roll:
- Sword – 50 Obols
- Dagger – 50 Obols
- Bow – 75 Obols
- Crossbow – 75 Obols
- Cap – 40 Obols

- Pants – 40 Obols

Don’t forget that if you end up with a piece of gear you don’t want, you can salvage gear in Diablo 4 to make back at least a little value on even the most unhelpful drops.
How to get Whispering Keys and open Silent Chests in Diablo 4
As you explore Sanctuary, you’ll stumble across Silent Chests. Interacting with these chests tells you Whispering Keys are required to unlock them. You can buy Whispering Keys at Lizveth, Purveyor of Curiosities, in Kyovashad, or other Curiosity Vendors for 20 Murmuring Obols.
With a Whispering Key in your inventory, interact with Silent Chest to unlock it and access the loot inside. We recommend always having a Whispering Key or two on you just in case you stumble across a chest. If not, you can always fast-travel to a city, buy a key, then portal back to the chest.
That covers how to get Murmuring Obols, how to get Whispering Keys, and how to open Silent Chests in Diablo 4.
