Diablo 4 players divided over “dumb” Murmuring Obols cap

There’s a set amount of maximum Murmuring Obols that you can carry in Diablo 4, and that’s something players are divided on.

In Diablo 4, Murmuring Obols is a type of currency that you can earn through various sources like completing public events. However, there aren’t many ways in which you can spend them.

As of now, you can either use your Murmuring Obols at the Purveyor of Curiosities to purchase equipment of random rarity, and the activity is commonly referred to as “gambling your Obols.”

Alternatively, you can purchase seasonal elixirs like the Elixir of Holy Bolts from the Alchemist in Diablo 4 Season 4.

However, the currency cap for Murmuring Obols has divided the Diablo 4 community into two camps, where one group believes that the cap is fine because it allows for easier spending.

Fist0fTheNorthStar took to Reddit to share their frustration with the Murmuring Obols cap, sharing how they had missed a decent amount of this currency while farming the Artificers Pit in Diablo 4.

Fans quickly joined in on the conversation, and one player said, “But what’s the point of a cap in the first place? Just slows you down really,” while another added, “What purpose does the cap serve? In what way does having a cap like this make the game better?”

Others who believe that the cap is important responded with their own views about the matter and one player said, “The point of the obols cap is to make sure you actually spend them.”

Considering that you can’t really spend Murmuring Obols like Gold in Diablo 4, players feel that having a cap on the former can help you keep track of your currency.

These Murmuring Obols are account-wide, so if you’ve created a new character, you can use these Murmuring Obols to gamble better gear with the Purveyor of Curiosities to help you level up quickly in Diablo 4.

While the debate revolving around the Murmuring Obols continues, players also shared their opinions about the current state of the Strongholds in the game. Also, here’s everything you need to know about the new Spiritborn class in Diablo 4: Vessel of Hatred.
