So I've finished the main quest line for Dawngaurd, but now I'm trying to use the bloodcursed arrows to block the sun, can this be done since I decided to kill Harkon?

  • As I am not 100% sure I will post it as a comment, but I am pretty sure they should still work. You do need to use the right bow though.

Harkon, like you apparently, is just someone who wants to use the power of the bow. He does not give it power. The bow's abilities when shooting the sun with both types of special arrow work fine after Harkon is dead. Though the "Clear Skies" shout is often required to find the sun in Skyrim.

The only thing I'm not sure of is if the bow needs to have available "soul gem power" to activate those abilities. Personally, I just keep it charged. It's remarkably low capacity makes it a good use for your smaller soul gems.
