Diablo Immortal has a faction system that is part of the endgame PvP content.

Adventurers are the third and, unlike the other two factions, are quite neutral in their goals for Sanctuary.

There are a couple of ways you can join the Shadows faction. Just keep in mind that while there is no limit to the number of players who can join Shadows, only 500 players can join Immortals per server.
To take part in the Shadow Lottery, visit the Mysterious Patron at Westmarch's tavern. You must be level 43 and have completed the Bilefen questline.
The Shadow Lottery has fixed hours and only lasts one hour. The lottery time depends on your server, but you can expect to find the mysterious patron after noon.
The mysterious patron will assign you a minor task to prove your worth. If successful, you will enter the Shadow Lottery; and if you win the lottery, you will receive a confirmation email.
Return to the mysterious patron after receiving the mail and you will be given additional tasks to complete as a new Shadow Meddle questline. This questline will reward you with experience points, gold and an Akeba seal.
The Akeba Seal you receive after joining the Shadows faction can be used to invite other players. The more activities you perform as part of the Shadows faction, the more Seals of Akeba you will accumulate and therefore the more players you can invite.
Just keep in mind that the players you invite must be level 43 and must have completed the Bilefen questline. The players must also be on the same server.
Invite a player; open the character portrait, select Invite to Shadows and confirm. You will receive 50 Marks after each successful invite which can be used to upgrade your ranks within the faction. You will also be able to join a dark clan.
The only way out of the shadows is to join the opposing faction of the Immortals. There is no way to leave Shadows to become factionless. Take note that your stint in Shadows will end with the end of Cycle of Strife.
You can join Immortals to leave Shadows, and this can be done by receiving an invitation from one of the Immortal clans. Likewise, you can leave the Immortals faction to join Shadows as well. Keep in mind that those who are the best Dark Clans will convert to Shadows while the other Shadows will become adventurers.
You can complete the daily missions and challenge missions that appear on the board every day. These challenges reward you with brands, thereby improving your rank, defense and damage.
Most of the activities can be found by visiting the Whispering Court in the hall outside the tavern in Westmarch.
An assembly meets for Shadows twice a week, usually on Wednesdays and Saturdays. In this assembly, all the Shadows gather and receive the blessings of Akeba. There are four blessings including Strength, Vision, Sacrifice, and Cunning.
There is a two-minute cycle that is repeated to bestow these blessings on random players and this activity is continued for eight hours. For each blessing, you receive 1-3 pieces of magical and rare equipment, supplies of waste materials, gold, 250 marks and experience points.
This is a kind of mini Rift activity that is available at the beginning as weekly contracts when you join Shadows. Each floor you pass will earn you 200 points. You can also go back to floors that had already been cleared to further improve your ranks in the faction.
Once you reach the second rank in Shadows, you can get a weekly contract. You can get it from the bartender at the tavern who will also inform you about the mission. You will get Shard of Living Night as well as other reward items and you will get Immortal Vault.
Once you have Shard of Living Night, you will be able to do a Raid. This allows you to get Essentia and Gold from the Vault. Essentia prevents the Immortals from opening Calvary of Kion.
Additionally, Raid the Vault is limited to two hours and can run twice a day on a single server. Note that it has a 3 minute cooldown and 50 raids is the maximum limit per day.
This is a PvP activity that can be performed twice a week in which Dark Clans compete to get into the top 10 places. A total of 32 clans compete with each other to decide which 10 clans will enter the final stage of Cycle of Strife. You must sign up for this activity on Mondays and competitions are held on Thursdays and Saturdays each week.
In addition to the number of different activities you can take part in after becoming a Shadow Broker, there are several perks and perks to reap.
The first advantage is that you get Points as a reward that earns you an Individual Buff Stacking. This allows you to improve your rank in Shadows and in turn improve your damage and defense by 1% at each level by going through all 32 levels. This benefit is not offered to immortals.
Additionally, Contracts can offer you legendary items other than gold and experience. In addition, it is possible to add more marks to your stash, thus improving your rank and increasing your damage and defense buff.
Joining Dark Clans can offer you experience and contracts as you compete in Shadow Broker activities. This improves the rank of everyone, including you, in the clan.
