    Daedric Influence

    I got this achievement by Completing the quest “ Ill Met By Moonlight.”

    I believe it starts in the town of Falkreath, if this is wrong correct me because I forgot, but in this town there should be a graveyard with some tombstones and a few people walking around. There will be a priest there, an elf priest, giving the funeral for a 10 year old girl. The two other people by the priest are the girl’s mother and father.

    I spoke to the father and asked him every question, he tells you about a man named Sinding who killed his daughter

    The quest will update and Sinding is located in the same town in a jail, the arrow will relocate as you progress through this quest and point you in the right direction to find the building he is in.

    Find Sinding and talk to him, say you will take the ring from him and give it to Hircine, who is a Daedric Lord. The quest will send you to kill a Giant White Stag, I suggest being a decent level and sneaking up on this stag so it doesn’t run away forever like it did to me. Use a bow and sneak or stealthily walk up to it and attack.

    Once the stag is dead, its ghost will appear and it will be Hircine, talk to him and ask if he can remove the curse from the ring, he will send you to find and kill Sinding in Bloated Man’s Grotto. Once there, there should be a few hunters that have been killed, continue on and Find Sinding in Werewolf form and tell him that you will spare his life, help him kill the remaining hunters and in doing so you become his friend and upon exiting the cave, Hircine will be pleased by you telling him that you were unable to kill Sinding. Hircine will still be pleased because, instead you slaughtered all the hunters and impressed him, after a very short dialogue you will receive his blessing and the achievement is yours.

    Sorry for the long guide, just giving you’re the full step by step instructions

    Ryet69As long as the guide is accurate and doesn't go off topic, long guides can be good. Great guide +1!

    Hirsute Dave"The Break of Dawn" quest - wiki link here: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/The_Break_of_Dawn - will also net you this one.

    And a pretty sweet sword for wasting the undead too!

    I won't give away the entire story of this quest, but I got this in a questline that starts by talking to Dervenin in Solitude. He wants you to go to the Pelagius Wing of the Blue Palace. Once you're in the Pelagius Wing, you're given a Daedric artifact after a bit of dialogue. I was lvl 10 for this.

    To get into the Pelagius Wing, you can clear out Wolfskull Cavern so Falk will like you, or (thanks to TAIRAR in the comments) you can Persuade the maid to give you the necessary key.

    TairaRAlternatively, you could persuade the maid into giving you a key instead of clearing out the cavern.

    You can have this achievement by completing the quest "A night to remember" (title translating from french so maybe not the correct title).
    Its starts in the tavern of Whiterun. Talk to A guy called Sam, he will offer you to make a drinking contest. After a while, you will awake in the temple of Dibella ... in Markarth.
    You will spend the rest of the quest to run after Sam to know what happened during this night. I wont spoil this adventure but I still let you know that you have to battle a giant, so be prepared. Alson during the final dungeon, you will face some mages and they are quite dangerous. To defeat them, i had to sneak and shoot them with my bow, when it was posible.
    The achievement will pop when you finish talking to the daedric god.

    P.S. Omegaslam noticed that you need to be at a certain level in order to meet Sam. He was at level 14 when he did that. He also said that you can run from the giant if you prefer. For me, it's more fun to kill a giant but do as you like.

    SaltzzzI thought if you chose the "intimidate" when questioning then you don't have to fight the giant? Orrr maybe I have no idea hahaha

    Mad Fool77Yes you can choose "intimidate" when questioning a couple of people avoiding the giant altogether.

    Count FlandersI was able to Intimidate that "farmer" lady in whatever village that was; she gave up the location of from a note my character apparently had left behind, so I never knew about this giant as mentioned. I did, however, have to put down a storm mage just before 'end' ... jeez, that was tough.
