Casting time: 1 bonus action
Range: Self
Components: V S M (A arrow head shaped gemstone of the colour you wish to cast. Gemstone must be worth 50gp.)
Duration: Up to an hour, can be dispelled early.

A magical Longbow appears in your hands. It appears to shimmer with the colors of the rainbow before settling onto the color of the gemstone you used.

This longbow magically supplies its own arrows that, when fired by you, deal 3d8 Piercing damage on a hit.

You are also able to imbue the arrows with greater damage depending on the color gemstone used.

By expending a level 2 spell slot or greater as a bonus action the drawn arrow takes on a deeper color to match the bow. On a hit the arrow inflicts it's normal 3d8 damage with added effect of the corresponding color below.
