[RPG] Using ranged weapons along with Air Genasi levitate ability


Can an Air Genasi shoot a bow while using their racial levitate? How do the components of this spell work? A bow is a two handed weapon. I'm having a hard time figuring out my options for this Air Genasi Ranger I'm trying to build.

Material, somatic, and verbal components are only required during the casting of spells, not during the duration. Your character can't shoot a bow while casting a spell with material or somatic components, but once the casting is done, your character's hands are free to do whatever you want while the spell is ongoing.
