— In-game description
The Dreamer shoots unicorns with a rainbow mane. The design of the bow itself is an alicorn; it has wings on the top, a unicorn's head in the middle, and a tail at the bottom. It also has flowing pastel pink and blue tassels on the top and bottom and makes horse neighing sounds when shot. Also, if you have The Dreamer in your hand when you get downed, the Throw Dirt animation will change from rocks to unicorns with a rainbow mane.

- The Dreamer, and its prerequisite The Lover, may be a reference to lyrics "The lovers, the dreamers, and me" from The Rainbow Connection.
- The unicorns that The Dreamer shoots have an ArenaNet logo on their flanks, reminiscent of the "cutie mark" worn by My Little Pony characters.
- The motif of the unicorn and rainbow might be a reference to the flash game Robot Unicorn Attack, which featured a (robot) unicorn able to dash with a rainbow aura. The game over screen also tells the player "your dreams did not come true" and prompts the player to "chase your dreams again" by pressing a button, which might have influenced the name of the shortbow.
