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. Most tonics have one possible transformation, while some have more possible outcomes. Tonics come from different sources: forged in the Mystic Forge, crafted by Artificers, or available from merchants, karma merchants, dungeons, special events, or achievements. Most tonics lock out all combat skills, while some grant the character costume brawl skills, and very few give skills usable in combat.
List of Tonics
Single use tonics
These tonics are consumed upon use. Many single use tonics can be bought from Merchants, Renown heart NPCs and Karma Merchants. Dungeon tonics drop in Dungeons and can be bought from Dungeon Merchant in Lion's Arch in exchange for dungeon tokens. Some single use tonics can be crafted by Artificers. While most single use tonics have no binding and can be traded on the Trading Post, tonics that forged and crafted are account bound. Tonics bought from Karma Merchants and Event NPSs mostly are soulbound.
These tonics are not consumed upon use. All Endless tonics are either unbound or account bound.
- ^ Some tonics can't be used underwater directly, but the transformation remains when entering water.
Combat tonics are endless tonics that changes appearance of playing character, still allows access to all combat skills as normal. Transformed player model appears with same weapons and back item as before transformation. Transformation can be turned off by using same tonic again. All combat tonics can be used in PvE and WvW modes, also underwater.

Clothing tonics used to be Town clothing, until that feature was removed with the April 15, 2014 Update. Some town clothing items were replaced with armor skins, others were changed into the tonics in the table below. All clothing tonics are endless and not consumed upon use. Since December 12, 2017 all clothing tonics can be traded for outfits at Black Lion Trader (Merchant) in Lion's Arch.
We don't currently know how to get hold of any of these tonics.
