From all the gameplay videos of BFB, I'll be able to complete this with my eyes closed...

Interesting to see an instance from the allready shown materiel as an achievement. Like O0mix0O says, it won't be much of a surprise here. Or... they change it totally :P

The dungeon is bigger than you think so it's stupid to say that even though we have seen a lot from it

Idk...from the cheev pic it looks like a spider is at the top of it so I assume it's either there's going to be lots of gaint spiders to fight or one bigass boss spider.

Also, I noticed from booting-up Oblivion recently that there's a cave called 'Bleak Flats Cave'. I guess the guys over at Bethesda like using the word 'Bleak' to name stuff. lol

The cave is bigger than most of you think. just because you've seen some footage doesnt mean anything. there is alot he didn't show in that demo.

To get this achievement you need to bring a "Dragonstone" acquired from the final
"boss" in Bleak Falls Barrow just after you read the word wall. The boss will then
emerge from his tomb/coffin. After a short battle, loot the creature and they will be
carrying the "Dragonstone". Take this back to the Jarl of Whiterun's court wizard
and voila, you have the achievement.

@#3 and #6, you were right, the dungeon is a lot bigger than what was shown, took me about 20/30 minutes! Hoping all the dungeons are like this, 25 minutes x 150+ dungeons? You do the math!

Also, the achievement isn't for clearing BFB when doing the golden claw quest, when you get to Whiterun, you will start a quest there called BFB and I'm guessing upon completion, it'll pop :D

I was getting tad worried there when my map said COMPLETE, but the cheevo didn't unlock. Nice to know that so I didnt think i did one little thing wrong. Also for the puzzle, the first one with the stones is Snake, Snake Owl i think. the answer to the second puzzle is actually on the Golder Claw itself.

Just clear BFB to get this acheivement. Start a quest before you go to retrieve the golden claw for the people at Riverwood Trader.

You don't actually have to start the quest in Riverwood first. I had already cleared the dungeon and had the claw when I went to visit. Talking to the trader netted me a dialogue option to ask him about "trouble he had" which in turn led to a dialogue tree where I could say "oh you mean this here golden claw?". Ping money :)

@24 There's actually two 'bosses' a sub boss and a main boss. One of them is a spider, one of them isn't.

It is fairly easy- you just have to give the dragonstone to Farengar Secret Fire in Dragonsreach.
