The shadowmage is a warlock who focuses on the destructive powers of dark energies rather than conjuration and demonic pacts. All of their arcana are different.[1]

While most warlocks specialize in conjuration and demonic pacts, some focus on other areas of the dark arts. Shadowmages eschew summoning in favor of the destructive power of raw entropy. Some say shadowmages developed the shadow bolt spell, and it encapsulates their magical style. As well as fel evocations, shadowmages enjoy spells that weaken other's minds and bodies and those that create darkness. With their connection to shadow, voidwalkers are shadow mages' preferred fel companions. A shadowmage can travel between shadows, teleporting from one to another.[2]
