Locations for some of the chairs were taken from the wiki page.

  • Ardenwolfe

    Wow. That didn’t take long at all. I love you, Dulfy!

  • Imulac

    A bunch of these are listed needlessly far apart. Just check around whenever you’re at one chair, you’ll probably find several others in the near vicinity.

  • Jalen Dmello

    Armchair commander haha, Oh yeah i can definitely see the the appeal why would many ppl would go for it :3

  • PureWambo

    For those without a Griffon stuck at #3, you can use a Springer to jump onto the roof of the building to get to the same destination.

    • Mewcifer

      I really feel the springer solution should be the one listed in the guide, since more people are gonna have springers.

      • Don36669

        But everyone’s addicted to their griffons. I see people just walking around with it, flying up for a few steps before landing again and walking on. A Springer would be the logical choice for reaching this chair, but logic goes out the window when people are starstruck with their shinies.

    • RabbitUp

      You can get to the chair without any mounts, but it seems you need gliding. There’s a tricky jump, and it might be possible with some profession jump skills or bundle items.

    • Matthew Williamson

      For #3, just go to the center of the top level of the main city and enter the instance for the Arcane Council. It won’t let you sit in the chairs due to “an invisible barrier”, but it gives you the credit.

  • bigbud

    Im so glad that we dont need serpents ire for this achiev.

  • Haleigh Knowlton

    Actually there was an Iron Siegesofa in the home instance as well against the back wall of Hero’s Forum. The throne was the only one I didn’t find in the Hero’s Forum.

  • Максим Черный

    #7,#8,#9,#11 are all where #7 is in the guide

  • Dan Vonerets

    so I can’t get this achievement because #42 i s bugged?

    • Vegeta

      Yep.. supposed to be a fix coming later this week (idk what day)

  • Fadhli

    Funny how some guild hall chairs count towards the achievement.

    • Ayakaru

      probably to increase the value of the guild(s and their halls)

  • Mari5463

    Just a note all of the charr seats can be found in the home instance in the , just need to keep your eye out as most are around the Hero’s Forum POI. Thanks for the guide Dulfy!

  • Gay and arting

    was it confirmed that the last chair is bugged? cause if it wasnt, i have the speculation its actually a chair in lions arch
    “This is the site of the First Sittable Chair, from which all others derive—the King of Chairs. It’s a secret which one it is.” – The Patch Notes
    Maybe theres one special, original sittable chair somewhere in lions arch that just noone has found yet?

  • narg

    for #3 you dont need grifon, just use your rabbit and jump up over the roof

  • KJ

    This achievement should grant you a simple wooden chair tonic, so you can’t take a seat anywhere! anytime!

    (usable in conquest mode too, of course!)

  • Sefer

    Not able to sit on “Queen Jennah’s Throne”. You cannot interact with it, /sit doesn’t work!

    • Sefer

      Oh and I am still in a love-hate-relationship with your guides. Do it in order pls … 🙂

      • Thanathos

        It’s in order. In order of the chairs like they’re displayed in the achievement.

    • Sefer

      Nope, not able to interact with any racial leaders throne …

  • Rick C

    It would be nice to see this re-ordered so you don’t have to keep backtracking over the same zone (both the Black Citadel and Divinity’s Reach.)

    • Kitties

      you could just ctrl+f the areas

      • Rick C

        True, and that’s what I did. I’m just saying it’d be nice if they rearranged the article a bit so we don’t have to.

        • Skippy the Chimp

          It’s in the order of the achievement. I didn’t need to be told to sit in other chairs next to the ones I was already doing.

  • Rick C

    If you go to Knut’s instance, you can’t sit on his throne, because he’s already sitting on it. If you go to Arcane Council, the chairs don’t have sittability. This strongly suggests that it only refers to Jennah’s throne, or it refers to some other chair entirely.

    • Don36669

      Or you could just try it. You still get credit for a chair when another player is already sitting in it. And lo and behold, you get credit for trying to sit in Knut’s chair as well. That’s how I got my #42. You just get a little dialogue about Knut pointing out to you there’s already someone sitting in the chair and you deciding not to press the matter further. Ruler’s Throne seems to work for all the rulers in cities, no matter if the chair is occupied or not.

      • Rick C

        When did you try? Last night, when I wrote that comment, I couldn’t sit in his chair (in the instance. I don’t know if it’s possible to get into his room in the open world). Maybe they updated it since? That’d be cool.

        • Don36669

          I did it about an hour or 2 before I posted here. Since #42 was unobtainable at first it would seem I did it after they fixed that. Just enter the instance and do what you would do with any other chair. Considering that you get participation for the achievement when another player is already sitting in a chair, it stands to reason that Knut already sitting in his doesn’t hinder getting the achivement either.

  • Cianann

    Ruler’s Thrones are back in order! 😀

  • Korey Garabed

    Chair achievement….. Really?

  • Aista

    You can get Ruler’s Throne in Arcane Council (Rata Sum). Apparently it counts as #3 too, in my case when I interact with the Ruler’s Throne it’s also completed the #3 as well thus completed my achievement.

  • Alot

    Armchair commander. That is the title which hangs above all gamers’ heads if you toggle them on -.-

  • Doghouse

    Just to confirm that, as of this morning (29 March) and in SW at least, the final chair is no longer bugged. Just completed the collection in Queen Jenna’s Throne Room.

  • Sorenyth

    Hey Dulfy!

    4-11 can be found all in the Home Instance of the Charr!

  • Biscuit

    If, for some reason, the Krytan Simple Chair doesn’t appear in Rook’s Row (it didn’t for me), there’s one beside the entrance of Vanguard Hospital. You’ll have to click on it to interact because there are three NPCs crowded really close to it.

  • Preacher Jorg

    all the charr/legions, can be found in the charr home instance

  • Mr. Principal

    Queen Jennah’s Throne should be the last one to sit on..

    • narg

      it can be any racial kings throne

      • Mr. Principal

        Sry for late reply.. Well I tried the other thrones.. but none of them worked except Queen J’s throne..

        • Natalie Hodgson

          For my asura it only worked at rata sum. Maybe it depends on your characters race.

  • Adam Rees

    Just a tip for those who don’t have the Gryphon, but want to get this achievement. For the Arcane Council chair, you can use the springer to launch yourself onto the roof of the Incubation Lab, then once you reach the top of the pyramid, slide down to the ledge that leads inside on the right hand side.

    • SueZ

      That’s basically what I did as well. I used my glider from the bridge to a ledge around the corner, then used my springer to get the around the rest of the way and then up onto the side so I could drop in from above. It can be done. My trouble now is the chair itself. It wouldn’t give me credit. I logged out and rebooted, and now I can’t even get the option to Sit to come up.

    • Morphine Dementia

      Or you can enter the Arcane Council instance (portal in the middle of upper level of Rata Sum) and interact with any of the several councillor chairs to get the credit. Much simpler.

  • SueZ

    I’ve got all but the first one, Rata Stool Model 34. I’m sitting in it right now as I type this, but it’s not giving me credit for it. Is this bugged or was there supposed to be a particular order that I didn’t follow?

    • Kitty Rallo

      I did the same thing… turns out I wasn’t in the home instance (Applied Development Lab) I was in Snaff Memorial Lab which also has a chair in the same place… Go to ADL and it’s on the upper floor.

  • Forward is Good

    i sat in the queens throne first just to see, and it worked just fine. am I not understanding what the bug is?

  • Sparky

    The queens throne worked for me and I got my chair

  • Arle Andersanka

    Worst guide I’ve seen on Dulfy so far. Could easily have done it twice as efficient by doing all chairs in the same houses, instances and cities at once, instead of jumping back and forth to waste time and money. When you’ve done 17 and 18, go to 21 directly. Then do 20, 23 and 24 instead of going to LA twice. (I’m at 20 now)
