Bow of Hercules

Weapon (longbow), legendary (requires attunement)

Hercules used this famous bow throughout his life. His arrows were smeared with the deadly venom of the monster Hydra. At his death, the bow was given to Philoctetes. It was discovered that Troy could not fall unless the bow was brought to the war. Philoctetes used the bow to slay Paris, the son of King Priam.

You gain a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. You can use an action to cause thick, black poison to coat an arrow. The poison remains for 1 minute or until an attack using this weapon hits a creature. That creature must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or take 2d10 poison damage and become poisoned for 1 minute. You can’t coat another arrow this way again until the next dawn.
