I'm playing around with Auriel's bow and the sunburst shot and I have a few questions about its effectiveness.

  • Can it strike a target multiple times?
  • How much damage does it do?
  • Does it cause friendly fire?
  1. Yes. Sunburst shots from Sunhallowed Elven Arrow will create a small AoE (area of effect) of blast upon impact and mainly effective again undeads and vampires.
  2. Base damage:

    16(elven arrow) + 20(sun damage) + 13(Auriel's Bow) = 49

    Note: This is not including Archery perks (Overdraw etc.) and armor enchantments. Also 3x damage for sun damage if used on undead and vampires (total base damage 89).

  3. Yes.

    oh nice, so bow damage boosts sunburst, that's good to know. – l I Jan 29 '13 at 3:33
