How to win the shadow lottery in Diablo Immortal

Before even starting to win the Shadow Lottery, however, there are some prerequisites that must be met in order to participate. You must reach level 43 and complete the Bilefen questline to participate in the Shadow Lottery.




There is still no absolute way to ensure you win the Shadow Lottery. Winning is simply a matter of luck, but even so, you can still increase your chances of winning. The best way to make sure you win is to keep participating in these lotteries until you do.

The Shadow Lottery takes place every day at certain time intervals throughout the day, but only lasts one hour. These time frames depend on the servers you are on, but are mostly 12pm, 00pm, and 18pm.


Once the Shadow Lottery has started, you need to go to Westmarch. There you will find an NPC named Mysterious Patron in the Tavern.

Talk to this NPC and if you happen to be selected, he will invite you to a room directly behind him. In this room, there are three ancient champions that you must defeat to prove your worth to join the shadow faction.

Once the task is completed, it is all a gamble. If you win the lottery, you will receive a letter in your mail with the headline: "Shadow Lottery Winner!". This is sent as a letter of appreciation and congratulations.

Upon receiving this letter, you will be asked to once again visit the Mysterious Patron in Westmarch. This time, when you talk to the mysterious patron, there will be an option called "Shadow Meddle".

Accept the option and talk to the bartender later. The bartender will give you a scroll that lists three other objectives you need to complete.

Objective 1: Complete the Path of Blood

You will find your first objective in the Court of Whispers. Head to the Whispering Court and look for a person named Nuon. Nuon will assign you your first task, which will be to defeat a total of three waves of enemies.


Upon completion of these three tasks, you will automatically be invited to the Shadow Broker faction. All you have to do is accept the invitation.

Objective 2: Amaze the Master Vault Raider

The second objective will be given to you by Fyggus, the Master Vault Raider. Fyggus wants you to steal 25x Essentia from the camera he will show you. These Essentia are dropped by enemies after being defeated.


You have to be careful while completing this objective as some of the enemies are Guardians, who will sound the alarm if they spot you. You have to kill them before the alarm goes off because the mission will fail if you don't.


Objective 3: Defeat the Ancient Champions

The third objective was given to you by the Mysterious Patron himself. The task requires you to defeat three ancient champions. These enemies are formidable opponents and will require some effort to defeat.

After completing all three of the above objectives, you will receive an invitation to join the Shadow faction, along with an Akeba seal. All you have to do is click on the join option.

Alternative method of joining the shadow faction

There is another method of joining the Shadow faction. However, this method requires a player who is already in the Shadow faction.

That player can invite you to join the Shadow faction but requires an Akeba seal mentioned above. This basically means that they will have to win the Shadow Lottery once again and then use the Akeba Seal to invite you to the Shadow Broker faction.
