Wondering how to get Whispering Keys in Diablo 4? Maybe you’ve come across a silent chest while exploring but not been able to open it because you’ve not had any Whispering Keys with you.

You’ll want to get ready to explore your Diablo 4 map and take on any Diablo 4 Events you come across, because we’re going to tell you exactly how you can get Diablo 4 Whispering Keys.

What are Whispering Keys in Diablo 4?

Whispering Keys are special items which can be used to open Silent Chests, unique chests you’ll find in the overworld. You’ve probably stumbled across one of these chests yourself while adventuring. They appear as large glowing chests covered with chains and a giant lock. If you try and open one without any Whispering Keys, it will simply tell you that you need one to open it.

These Silent Chests often contain rare loot, so you want to open one whenever you see it. For this reason, we recommend always having a Whispering Key or two on you 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.

How do you get Whispering Keys in Diablo 4?

Whispering Keys can be bought from a Purveyor of Curiosities in certain settlements. The first one you’ll come across will most likely be the Lizveth, located in the southeast of Kyovashad. Head to one of these vendors.

Unlike normal vendors, buying items from a Purveyor of Curiosities requires Diablo 4 Murmuring Obols, a special kind of currency. Each Whispering Key will cost 20 obols to buy, but considering the potential loot you can get from Silent Chests, we think this is pretty good value, so be sure to pick a few up.
