Pharus is a light-themed longbow with an intricate design. While in use, it shifts into a mass of white light in the shape of a bow, complete with a bowstring of light. In its stowed state, the bow is solid, and marginally smaller as well as subtler in appearance.
- The wielder is wrapped in white-blue light.
- The wielder's right hand leaves a subtle blue trail while moving.
- Draw/Stow Animation
- A cluster of light flashes around the wielder, coming from the ground up as if lightning strikes the earth.
- The light leaves a mark on the ground where it scorched the earth. The scorched area stays until the bow is stowed or weapons are swapped.

- The word "pharus" is Latin for "beacon".
- Pharus may lend its name from the "Pharos of Alexandria", one of the seven world wonders, a lighthouse over 100 metres tall, possibly the first lighthouse in history, located on a small island called Pharos at the western edge of the city of Alexandria. The lighthouse was a beacon for sailors, guiding them safely into the harbor.
