The Dryad Bow is a Bow that can be acquired in dungeon Doom.

It comes with +5 or +10 to a random skill - either Archery, Chivalry, Healing, Ninjitsu, Peacemaking or Resisting Spells. (Skill Group 5 except Throwing, see Skill Bonuses)

It is one of many Doom Artifacts that can be acquired by defeating creatures of the following types:

The base chance of achieving an artifact is about one in a thousand (or one in a hundred from Dark Fathers). These odds improve as you make more and more kills until such time as you receive an item, at which point the counter resets.

"For your valor in combating the fallen creature, a special artifact has been bestowed upon you."

Cursed versions were given as loot from:
