Tonics are consumables that transform the player's model into a different model specified by the tonic used. Some tonics are "Endless" meaning they are not consumed upon use, in contrast to normal tonics. Almost all tonics have one possible transformation, while a few have more possible outcomes. Most tonics are craftable in the Mystic Forge, by combining two Mystery Tonics (available from Black Lion Chests, as well as Endless Mystery Tonic) and two other crafting materials. Some can be crafted by Artificers and quite a few are available from merchants, karma merchants, dungeons, and special events. Most tonics lock out all combat skills, while some grant the character costume brawl skills, and very few give skills usable in combat.

Most tonics allow the use of certain Costume Brawl Toys and toy-like Gizmos without losing the form, usually replacing the skills of the form if it provided any.

List of Tonics[edit]

Merchant Tonics[edit]

Many NPC merchant sell tonics in game. You can buy tonics using gold or karma (event NPC Merchants, Renown Heart NPCs and other Karma Merchants), or buy them for other currencies, such as bandit crests (Bandit Crest Collectors), laurels (Laurel Merchants) or guild commendation (Guild Commendation Traders).

Dungeon tonics drop in Dungeons and can be bought from Dungeon Merchants in Lion's Arch in exchange for dungeon tokens; they are also available on the Trading Post.
