User talk:Gaile Gray/Tonic guesses

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

It was fun making guesses on the 3rd Year Birthday presents. Folks have suggested we do it again, and hey, I'm in a wiki-page-making mood, so why not? If someone else has already started such a page, I'm more than happy to defer (and we could merge this material, too, if desired). But I don't see a page, and I love predictions!

So let's take a stab at forecasting those tasty monthly Zaishen tonics. The first topic below is the earlier thread where we started our guessing. You can add your daring predictions below that. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 20:38, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

So Gaile? What About 4TH Year Minis? Are we gonna guess that? 11:27, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Tonics -- What's Coming?[edit]

So, what's coming down the pike for tonics? After The Rift Warden tonic -- and I refuse to call them anything else ;) -- I'm thinking I'd rather like to be an Ooze or a Bone Dragon. You? -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:18, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Gender change tonic PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've wanted one of these for AGES. Would make my screen capping armour far easier! Gaile use your super powers and get the programmers to add one, there's a cookie in it for you. :)-- Salome User salome sig.png 08:09, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Gender change tonics are harder to implement than you think. That update changed the way the client program loaded character models. When the client wanted to know if a character was male or female, it would be told the opposite, and would load the corresponding model. Applying a gender change to a single character would be a nightmare to code, but is technically possible.
I want a Ghostly Hero tonic. ~Shard (talk) 08:15, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Still want an answer for the Gender Changing Tonic ever since April Fools 2007. I want it very very badly.....and you kind of promised you would pursue this Gaile ;-). But i would love a Warthog Tonic..'..Hundred and Hundreds of Warthogs moving everywhere!!! WARTHOG ANARCHY!! Miniature Pig.png Soz...let myself get carried away... Ohw...Ohww...OOOHWW.. a George Tonic!!! A Kveldulf Tonic!!!! Arrghhhh here i go this game.. grrr. --Silverleaf User_talk:Silverleaf 08:50, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Rabbit tonic, panda tonic XD, grenth(the green ones) tonic, devrourer tonic, black widow tonic, wurm tonic mmm it can be anything^^ 10:51, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Wouldn't mind seeing an Asura tonic (oh hold on, gotta wait for that until gw2 no? ^^) Siege devourer would be nice imo =) --User Tribina base.png (Tribina / talk) 11:13, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Sylvari Tonic!!!!!--Silverleaf User_talk:Silverleaf 11:29, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

(Reset indent) So if i get this right Gale, not all tonics of the coming months are certain yet, and you want to ask the community about their favourites, quite similar to the third miniature guesses?
Well, i suppose the proposals are quite similar to those of minis. I'd like to see a Blasphemy tonic for example :P —ZerphatalkThe Improver 11:42, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

I'd totally go for a Siege Turtle tonic. That'd be fun ^.^ --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 13:01, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
A Gaile Gray tonic ftw? No? Ok what about a Mad King Thorn tonic?--BabyJ 15:10, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Give me a Margonite Tonic ^^ Or Djin Tonic ^^ _.:-+-:._ 15:15, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes!!! Margonite or Djin Tonic ^^
his guy above me has stolen my sig ^^_.:-+-:._ Cyan Light 15:18, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh, hey, I'm just curious about how good we could be at predicting which tonics are coming in the future. I hear the designers came up with a lot of the ideas already, but I purposely didn't ask what they are, so I'm as in the dark as you are. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:19, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
Hm...I'd like a fire djinn tonic...or a charr tonic. Of course my top pick would be a Prince Rurik potion, but I don't think thats gonna happen hehe.-Warior Kronos User Warior Kronos Sig.jpg 02:43, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Im thinking its more of a Balthazar tonic this month. (or any other the other GW gods) Dominator Matrix 05:47, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, but dervies can already transform into an avatar of Balthazar. I think all these tonics should be new. Unless you could use the Balthazar one outside of towns...that'd be cool. -Warior Kronos User Warior Kronos Sig.jpg 15:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
i want a izzy tonic, that'd be cool --Cursed Angel talk 19:25, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
CANADA RULEZ!! woops! too many Eloc tonics i think...--Sum Mesmer GuyTalk to me NOW!! DO IT! contribs 19:32, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Canada indeed rulez. Happy (tardy) Canada Day. :)
And I'm fully on board for the Fire Djinn or Roaring Ether tonic! -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:19, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Dragon Tonic for Dragon Festivals. Either that or Emperor Tonic. For July, though, what with Canada Day, American Independence Day, and Quatorze Juillet, something fiery would be a lot of fun. ceolstan 17:27, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Has the July tonic been inplemented yet? I think the first scheduled update of the month has passed, yet I haven't heard anything about new tonics yet, nor can I find anything here. Wondering what might come ;) -ContributionsWhy 11:44, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
I believe Regina has already stated that the july tonic is scheduled for the second update in the month which is the week after the dragon festival...due to well the dragon festival. Wait til the next update and it should be implemented then --Stu 12:08, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Sorry, it's hard to keep up with all talk pages around here, but I'll do some more research next time. ;) -ContributionsWhy 15:37, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Destroyer of Earth!!! Drumstick

I'm still hoping for a Margonite tonic (hopefully a Margonite Reaper one, but any of them would be cool) : D Erasculio 18:01, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
Menzie tonic!!!! Who wouldn't want to like a Shadow Ranger/Shadow Warrior --Primeval Sentinel User Primeval Sentinel user icon.jpg Talk 19:14, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
So Gaile, when will the prediction game commence? --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 06:51, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

A two headed chicken stick figure tonic, i have no idea, where that idea came from, do you? GAILE. Good day Frozenwind 01:01, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm I'd go for a Water Djinn, Margo Para or Ele, Envoy from factions, Any of the Eternal's (anything transparent), I'd really like to be Mallyx but yeah that wont happen at least to scale haha --O Frost O File:O Frost O Sig.GIF 21:40, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I would love to see a Forge Imp Tonic, they look awsome, and a great disguise for October 03:44, 10 August 2008 (UTC) Skyrim Kron

I want a charr tonic. charr rule --adrin User Adrin ecto sig.png 20:55, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
LMAO i win the contest. it was a charr tonic --adrin User Adrin ecto sig.png 00:44, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Gaile's Predictions[edit]

I don't have a clue about September. Charr? Mursaat? Both would be super popular, I know. Looking towards the rest of the year, there are some pretty significant holidays coming up, and the designers may want to tip the hat to those.

  • October -- going with the concept of a seasonally-inspired beverage, maybe we'll see a MKT tonic or some undead-ish looking character or creature. (Last night someone mentioned Bone Dragon tonic -- now there is a great idea!)
  • November -- well, if we had a turkey-like creature, I know the folks in the US would appreciate a little humour through a Thanksgiving flare, but the closest we have is the Moa. Hmmm... that has potential. :)
  • December -- for this joyous season, we have already seen seasonally-inspired tonics, but there are many, many other options for that month. Personally I want to be a shimmering Dwayna, but we'll see.

In short, I can't wait to see what's coming, but so far, it's allll about the Rifts for me. ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 20:38, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I'm taking a half point of credit, for October's is indeed an "undead-ish" creature! And I love him! :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:52, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

SP's predictions[edit]

Well well I have a few!

  • September: I honestly agree with Gaile, I think it will probably be a Charr tonic! The Charr homelands kinda remind me of fall sometimes so that is the reason chose them.
  • October: Either the Orrian zombie dudes or Mad King Thorn; but I doubt it will be Mad King Thorn... I can see where that would get confusing at the halloween events lol.
  • November: I would go with Phoenix (not the rainbow kind); I think they are closer to turkeys than Moas are :p.
  • December: My guess would be a snowman or Freezie. Though I would also like to be an Avatar of Dwayna like Gaile!
  • January: White Moa; awsome!
  • Febuary: Some sort of Dragon....
  • March: Rainbow Phoenix, since it is rainy in march in the U.S.
  • May: SP tonic, cause thats my b-day month. But seriously, I would go with Igloba; april showers bring may flowers.

Thats all I can think of atm :P --ShadowphoenixPlease, talk to me; I'm so lonely ;-; 03:26, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

We already have a frosty tonic that turns you into a Freezie. Should be re-released though, definetely. --Burning Freebies 14:22, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Graspy's Predictions[edit]

Sorry i cant think of dates, but here are some there should be:

  • Grentch tonic
  • John Petrucci tonic-We all become amazing guitar soloists. For all those who dont know Petrucci, follow this link
  • Grasp tonic
  • God tonic-Turns you into a random God.
  • Dragon tonic-Glint, Drakkar...
  • Shiro tonic
  • Lich tonic
  • Asura tonic
  • Sylvari tonic
  • Mallyx tonic
  • Varesh tonic
  • Froggy tonic
  • Gaile tonic
  • Random tonic-Transforms you into a random creature!

Thats all. I might add more soon.... --Burning Freebies 14:22, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

--TalkWild 11:31, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Stokoe's Prediction(s)[edit]

There has to be an Aatxe tonic... There just has to be, otherwise I wouldn't currently be holdign that 100k and 20 ectos :P
Or a Smite Crawler tonic! :D
A Santa Clause tonic is a must for December too :P --Stokoe Talk 04:25, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Seru's Guess[edit]

What about some old school Rurik Tonic. or undead Rurik tonic oooooo — Seru User Seru Sig2.png Talk 04:27, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Undead Rurik? But... but... there is no art work for that! I mean, to have such a thing would entail some sort of spoiler and...  ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 04:38, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Domn the tiger's wish[edit]

DJINNATONIC!!! It has a wicked cool name and it turns you into a ruby djinn =D how awesome is that?? Yeah, I know, it's super duper awesome. (If anyone doesnt get the reference, there's an alcoholic drink called gin and tonic (ginatonic)which sounds almost excactly the same as DJINNatonic =))

Frozenwind's Predictions[edit]

Dont know about you guys and ladies but i made a pact with the Zaishan Agent, come December he has arranged to slip me an:


Also asked about the two headed what-ya-ma-call-it, sadly he has no idea how to obtain it, i tried. Frozenwind 11:31, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

MageMontu's Predictions[edit]

Here's a list of What I think we'll see, I did not give them a month cause i don't know which should I put where. Anyway;

Did Anyone Predict that Floating Head Thingie?[edit]

Yeah, I was pretty surprised. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 02:48, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I surely didn't. I was quite surprised when i saw it on d calender, and marked it as my favorite since now :P --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 07:34, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
It's still all about the Phantasm for me. /prays to Dwayna for Eternal Tonic  ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 06:30, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
I have to say, there is something about the tonics that "float" or fly. I had entirely too much fun with my one hour of being an Awakened Head, and it was pretty much only the guildies and I messing around in the guild hall. (Yay Screenies..) But my favorite holiday and favorite month is Halloween in October, so I've got my fingers crossed for the King of all that is Halloween in GW. (too obvious? :D ) Mllepandora 06:42, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
*happy sigh* I can't wait for October, so I can start decorating for Halloween! My neighbors look at me funny if I start when I want to, which is about July. ;) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 07:59, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
You're not the only 1 Gaile, we start decorading for Christmas on the first week of November :P Anyway I don't think the October Tonic will be Mad King Thorn, so not to create confusing during the Halloween event. I more thing of a Necrid Horseman or another undead specie. --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 08:58, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
Hey, well, if you can start decorating that early for Christmas, why not Halloween as well? :P Perhaps I'll start sneaking some of the pumpkins and witchy candelabra out now...:D As for the tonic, I see your point, and I'd be happy with a Necrid Horsemen or Bone Dragon, either would be awesome if confusion was an issue. (I'll still hope though...) Mllepandora 09:42, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
Unfortunately, where I come from, doesn't celebrate Halloween, so in my 22 years I never experienced 1. --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 10:03, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Try getting a person in a norn tonic form and a Macarbe head tonic, put them together and what have you got!, a comical bouncy head, similar to what you get in the back of cars.Also HALLOWEEN in Guild Wars be in the International District of Lions Arch on all Hallows Eve! Frozenwind 12:30, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Mage, you'll just have to plan a visit to the US of A someday, around Halloween...that way you'll get to see it first hand. (I think you are never to old to go trick or treating!) Frozenwind... I shall see you on All Hallows.. :D Mllepandora 17:17, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
Hmmm I may seriously consider that. Maybe to Washington so I can try one of Gaile's sweets :P --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 17:24, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Grasp Kings predictions[edit]

Oh, i predicted above. Woops, forgot. Ah well, ive evolved to a true Grasp King now, so im a different person! --Burning Freebies 15:49, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

... - Rabbit tonic would be fun. -- Mini Me talk 20:02, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
You Do Realize the ghostly version probably won't happen. But I can see that as this years april fools prank:)Great going! 11:24, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Chilli's Hopes And Dreams[edit]

Please please please a djinn tonic at some point :D Me, Mari and Clivelet all roleplay as djinn... I want to actually be who I am when roleplaying.. so ruby djinn specifically :D

Megalodons Predictions[edit]

October: Necrid horseman tonic (spooky)

November: That moa idea was great, a moa tonic a' la Thanksgiving! great idea, Gaile

December: Grentchie tonic (merry xmas!)Megalodon 12:43, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey, Megalodon, what do you think? The Necrid Horseman -- gotta love it, eh!?  :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:48, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Hehe, ye:) I think I was pretty close predicting the October tonic, I just quessed on the wrong zoombie xDMegalodon 15:22, 11 October 2008 (UTC)


Hey Gaile! Grats to Arena net on another great tonic! This new "Skeletonic" sounds and looks really good! I like the way you integrate tonic into the name, like in Automatonic. Great work. Cant wait till November tonic! --Burning Freebies 16:05, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I am a major fan of the Hell Hound. In fact, one of my favourite screenshots of all time is this one with the horrific Hell Hound set against the lovely pastels of Kryta. (Not to mention my early Ranger looking heroic. :p ). This tonic is putting me into a terrible quandary, though, because I've been saving for months for next year's rotation of the Phantasm -- hoping for an Everlasting, of course -- and now I want the Everlasting Skeletonic, too! I'd say kudos to the designers on this guy, for sure! -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 17:47, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I almost quessed right on this one... I just thought of the wrong zoombie;)Megalodon 15:24, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
I agree! This tonic is awesome. Can't wait to 'dress up' this year! :D Happy Early Halloween! :D Hope springs eternalMllePandora 07:47, 14 October 2008 (UTC)


plz? --Cancer Angel y so srs? 18:02, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Good idea , i'l get an izzy tonic and make sure everyone beats the crap out of me. some good stress relieve there. -- 12:54, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

November = kanaxai?[edit]

9 nov is my bday, so im gonne blow my candles and hope for kanaxai tonic:D (Ixillius) (keep forgetting to sign.)

Everlasting destoyer tonic[edit]

This is the tonic that i am hopeing a praying for, i love the destoyers so much, that i will pay up to 100k+ 150zkeys for one, i just want to look like my mini destoyer of flesh so much, that i will even go kurzick to get one (i am R8 luxon in the ANY alliance BTW)so if you can get Anet to make one, that will be so great.--Thedreadlordpie 12:42, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

I want a tonic of one of the Shiro'Ken type of creature. Shiro'ken Elementalist or Shiro'Ken Mesmer would be sweet ^_^ 23:22, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

That'd be awesome!-- Shew 05:33, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
pretty much anything that can fly with an awesome skin Chaos Beserker 20:41, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Dumbo's prediction[edit]

Disc of Chaos tonic would be awesome.

Thats what she said -- 12:54, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I knew I was walking into that one. — Wolf User Great Darkwolf User Image paw.png 21:18, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Frost's December Tonic Guess[edit]

Ok this is the tonic im probably going to get and keep so I hope its amazing and Icy of course =D

Although I kinda would like the Freezie Tonic to be everlasting I would definately like something new.. a suprize!

My Top 2 picks: A huge Polar Bear(like Ursula the White) or a huge Rudi(the Kidnapped Reindeer red nose and all) would be awesome, then maybe a Spectral Vaettir, Water Djinn, Margo Para or Ele, Any of the Eternal's (anything transparent), Kveldulf and lastly Monkey.. err Mallyx! --O Frost O User O Frost O Sig.GIF 05:12, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Mallyx is a gorilla silly! =D — Wolf User Great Darkwolf User Image paw.png 05:14, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

My April guesses:

  • Afflicted Warrior
  • Gwen-chan
  • Fire Djinn 15:26, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Vili's Vision[edit]

I would call it a prediction, but I know it will come true anyway. (Won't it?) Seer. The potion would cleverly be called an "Infusion". It is a pune, or play on words, because an infusion is a type of potion, and Infusion in Guild Wars is ... well, it's clever.

If that isn't good enough, I'm sure an Eidotonic would be nice. Vili User talk:Vili 08:50, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Falls hopes[edit]

I hope they make a blue or pink lost soul tonic or a djin tonic another hope is for a Junundu tonic well thats my hopes--Fall of th Living 01:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Anbu's guess[edit]

A Destroyer tonic would be very nice (a warrior or dervish destroyer tonic would realy rock), or else a Terrorweb Dryder tonic. Anbu 22:18, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Warthog, charr or Stone dwarf.[edit]

Personally id like to see a army of warthogs in LA one day:P But since we already have norn and asura tonics, isnt it only fair to have a charr or dwarven tonic?(Ixillius 00:13, 30 January 2009 (UTC))

Mursaat, Djinn, Paragon Margonite[edit]
