Auriel's Bow

Use the special power of Auriel's Bow  

The earliest this is available is after you finish the quest touching the sky. You can do this on the balcony in which you claim the bow. Since the the bow comes with 12 sunhallowed just shoot 1 sunhallowed arrow directly into the sun. You can also do this with the blood tainted arrows you can get from Serana after the story is over.

Alright, after you acquire Auriel's Bow and beat the dlc questline you should have the option of talking to Serana and using her blood combined with Elven Arrows to create Bloodcursed Arrows. Once you've done that go outside during the day and shoot an arrow straight into the sun. Pop. Achievement Unlocked.

Another way to do this is use the sunhallowed arrows you get from the snow elf. Same method though, just shoot the sun.

This achievement is actually pretty cool, got it yesterday. Anyone know how long the sky stays dark for? I did that, then I called in the dragon from Soul Cairn to get my new shout, then my game froze, so I just turned it off for the night.

You guys must be having some bad luck or I'm just lucky. My game didn't freeze once and I play 6-10 hours at a time usually.

I use clear skies to see where the sun is exactly but every time I try to shoot the arrow barely goes anywhere, it just kind of falls down to the ground. Is this because my archery skill isn't maxed or what? :/

Nevermind. I unequipped everything then equipped it again and tried and it worked. Just another glitch.

Im assuming you can only get this with the vampire questline? or can you get it with both?

Just to be clear you dont actually have to make bloodcursed arrows just shoot on of the special arrows you are given on it still pops up.

Just so everyone knows you can get this without doing the vampire questline. If you side with the Dawnguard when you get Auriel's Bow you can get a different special effect with Sunhallowed Arrows. You get those arrows and shoot at the sun, they have a different effect. I just got it that way.
