Blizzard’s Diablo 4 contains many avenues to chase loot, ranging from dungeons, world events, damage types, and chests. Of course, chests can be found throughout the world and come in various types. One type of chest new to Diablo 4 is the Silent Chest, which can only be unlocked under certain conditions. Fortunately, we know how to unlock Silent Chests in Diablo 4.
Diablo 4: Silent Chests – What they are, and how to unlock them
Silent Chests are chests that rarely spawn in various areas. Their rarity can’t be understated; they’re quite few and far between. If you find one, you’ll notice little chains and a lock around it, distinguishing it from other kinds of chests. You need a Whispering Key in your inventory to open a Silent Chest. Whispering Keys can be bought from a Purveyor of Curiosities for 20 Murmuring Obols each.
Accordingly, if you find a Silent Chest, you have two options on how to unlock it in Diablo 4. Either buy Whispering Keys ahead of time and keep some in your inventory (they go into the consumables section so that they won’t take up any precious looting space), or portal back to town, buy a Whispering Key, and portal back to the chest.
There are two Purveyors of Curiosities in the Fractured Peaks area. Here are their locations:
Unlock Diablo 4 Silent Chests: Where to find more Murmuring Obols
A popular way to get Murmuring Obols is for completing world events. The amount you get depends on your performance during the world event. For example, if you do a caravan event, you get more Obols for keeping all civilians alive. In addition to Whispering Keys, you spend them on random gear for a specific slot. Once you pick the slot you want, the result could be terrible or it could be incredible and build-defining. In many ways, Murmuring Obols seem to be a revamping of Kadala and her Blood Shards from Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls.
Diablo 4 is available on Battle.net.
