DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Per patch 1.69:
- Bards will now automatically receive the Belt of the Sun instead of being given the choice of activating the Belt or having it returned to them. The Sages were mistakenly telling Bards that they couldn't use all the features of the Belt of the Sun, but they can.

Below is the begining information for the Artifact Belt of the Sun, if you know more information please send it in.

Sphinx Hesper says: Ah, the Belt of the Sun and Belt of the Moon are said to be the only religious artifacts ever found to be Atlantean. Seemed they were ones to think they were as gods themselves. Who knows, perhaps they were. They would be to us, with all that they could do. There is an island in Oceanus Borea where you can find temples. I believe that is where you can find the two belts.

You must kill the Protectors of Light and Dark on Sunmoon Islands in Oceanus Boreal (15k, 30k).

One you kill all the protectors and the last one will drop a key. Walk to the pillar (which the hesperisís will not aggro you for now, they will before) to claim your artifact. Highly recommended to go up the side of the island to dodge the hespís in front. artifacts.

Scholar's Notes 1 of 3 - Drops off Skyros tidal warriors and Skyros breakers

Scholar's Notes 3 of 3 - Drops off Skyros sky mages (loc=10000 20000)and Skyros guros (loc=15138 31664) Mesothalassa.

Min Level for Artifact

I was able to obtain and activite this artifact at lvl 41 and then it cons yellow to me and says its a lvl 40 item not lvl 50.. ALl depends on what level u are when artifact is activated. MIN level for activation is level 40

Also per patch Notes 1.69b--
Artifacts and their spells will now be usable as they are unlocked. This means that the artifact level for some artifacts (such as the Belt of the Sun) will be lowered to the level at which the player can receive the unlocked artifact from the NPC researcher. Previously the artifact spells were set to a minimum level higher than the level at which players could receive the artifact.

Getting the belt wasn't entirely too difficult. It just requires paying attention to what side of the island your climbing. Watch the White Sharks as well, they can be a painful surprise. It took our group about 10 minutes to kill all of the protectors. A note though, the key isn't "dropped", it is randomly put into a group member's inventory.
