Symbiotic Bow

1
An extraordinary bow.
Used by Xavier Yi, Created by Snaxkz.
On Signature Item Xeczans.

When drawing the bow, it will split open to form an X shape and start to absorbs energy from its surroundings and condenses it into a ball of pure energy before expelling it in a beam with the shape of an arrow when you release the shot. Those nearby will feel the air start to move in the direction of the energy ball.

Xaczans crash landed on earth in a small meteorite and will seek out the nearest intelligent being to bond with. Other pieces of it were scattered throughout the earth due to the meteor breaking into pieces when entering the atmosphere. The bow absorbs energy from its surroundings and condenses it into a ball of pure energy before expelling it in a beam with the shape of an arrow when you release the shot.

When wielded you will feel a light pulsating effect, almost like a heartbeat. A weird voice will begin speaking to you in an unknown language you can't comprehend.
