How do I get Diablo 4 Murmuring Obols?

The only way to obtain Murmuring Obols in Diablo 4 is to complete world events, either as a solo adventurer or in a party.

These events range from random instances where you need to defeat possessed enemies within a specific time limit, to world bosses like Ashava which require lots of players to launch a coordinated attack.

You can increase the size of your world event rewards by completing the optional Mastery objectives, granting you Murmuring Caches that reward you with 50 Murmuring Obols. Find out how many Murmuring Obols you have by viewing your character sheet and heading to the ‘Materials and Stats’ tab.

Where can you spend Murmuring Obols?

You can sell your Murmuring Obols in Diablo 4 to any Purveyor of Curiosities vendor in exchange for gear.

You can find a Purveyor of Curiosities vendor in every major town. These vendors sell a range of gear at different price points, but they only accept Murmuring Obols. Whenever you receive an item from the vendor, most of the time you’ll hear them comment about how unlucky you are to receive a low-quality item. You have a small chance of earning legendary-quality items from the vendor, but you may need to spend lots of Murmuring Obols first.

What is the Diablo 4 Murmuring Obols limit?

By default, you can carry a maximum of 500 Murmuring Obols in Diablo 4. This limit can be increased all the way to up to 1,000 Murmuring Obols, but you will need to locate every Altar of Lilith. Reaching world tier 4 is also a great way of increasing your Murmuring Obols limit.

If you’re only just learning about what Murmuring Obols are and how they work, there’s a chance you may have received the following message in-game: “You cannot carry any additional Murmuring Obols”. This means you’ve hit the limit for how many Murmuring Obols you can carry.
