Sunhallowed Elven Arrows are a unique variant of Elven Arrows found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. The arrows have glowing white tips with white fletching, and are stored in a silver Elven quiver, used only by the Snow Elves.


They are given to the Dragonborn by Knight-Paladin Gelebor after having obtained Auriel's Bow.

In order to obtain additional arrows, Gelebor provides a service where he will bless normal Elven Arrows with incantations and rituals to produce Sunhallowed Elven Arrows in groups of twenty. A good source for Elven Arrows is Sorine Jurard. She typically sells around 200 at a time, but is only available as a merchant if the Dawnguard are sided with. If sided with the Volkihar Clan your choice for buying Elven Arrows then becomes Hestla, who carries roughly the same amount. Alternatively, Elven Arrows can be smithed using firewood and refined moonstone, provided the Dragonborn has acquired the Elven Smithing perk.


Sun 2

Effect on Sun after shot by Auriel's Bow with Sunhallowed Arrows.

These arrows are unique in that they produce a unique effect when fired from Auriel's Bow. When fired normally at an undead enemy, the arrows cause Sun Damage and a small area-of-effect blast that will cause some damage to surrounding entities.

Shooting a Sunhallowed Arrow from Auriel's Bow at the sun will cause the sun to undergo an explosion, causing beams of harmful sunlight to rain down on all enemies (and allies) similar to the effect of the Storm Call shout.

These special effects only occur when the arrows are fired from Auriel's Bow. When fired from any other bow, they will behave just like the normal elven arrows.


During the battle with Lord Harkon, the Sunhallowed Arrows do not have to be fired. Auriel's Bow has the ability to destroy the barrier he uses to heal himself. Otherwise, he is untouchable while he heals.
