The Purveyor of Curiosities is your one-stop gambling shop in Diablo 4! Here you can use Obols as currency to acquire items for a piece of equipment of your choice. This currency is often rewarded from Local Events and inside Dungeons when you happen upon a Cursed Object event.

While you can select the gear slot, what rarity of item you get is completely random. Items can come in common, magic, rare or legendary rarity. Save up those Obols and when you're ready, try to hit it big at this vendor!

How To Get Obols

Obols are a special reward you receive from completing many of the special Events and tasks in Sanctuary. You can have a maximum of 500 Obols to start, leaving any extra you come across to waste. With the new Renown and Altar of Lillith rewards, you can increase the maximum number of Obols beyond this. Make sure to spend your Obols whenever you're approaching the limit.

Here is a list of the events so far that can reward Obols:

  • Cursed Object Event in Dungeons
  • Completing Quests with a Cache reward
  • Completing Local Events with Mastery
  • Gathering Legions Zone Events

The glowing indicator seen above the Cap, Tunic and Gloves selection seems to increase the chances of upgrading the rarity of an item gambled at this time. The options that have this upgraded chance rotates similarly to the other Vendors updating what item they have to sell. While the exact statistical increase is not completely known at this point, it may be worth your while to check in whenever you have some extra Obols!



  • The Purveyor of Curiosities is the only Vendor that accepts Obols, a rare currency that allows you to gamble for any gear slot your character has.
  • Obols drop from special challenges in Dungeons as well as in Local and Zone Events. You can only have 500 to start, make sure to spend them before adventuring if you're approaching the limit. The Renown and Altar of Lillith rewards can increase this amount.
  • Obols can also purchase Whispering Keys which unlock Silent Chests found randomly throughout the over-world.
  • The item power of gambled items scales with your character level.
