    In case anyone frets over the achievements, you don't really have to complete them for the rewards.
    But, it's fun to do them as a Choya.

    You can wear Halo and Representation Button and all manner of other things with the tonic.
    You can use Novelties, as well.
    If you dance, there are different dance animations.

    It's a lot of fun; thanks Devs, job well done.

    Also, the cats from the contest offered at the last Extra Life event are in Eye of the North, as well as a new Giant Cat (seen with the Chatoyant Elixir or the new Chatoyant Lens).

    I didn't know about the Extra Life cats, thanks for mentioning this. I hope they give us a chance to donate for this again! :)

    Also, I love being a Choya! What a fun idea!

    The Choya have arrived to help us with the dragons. We might actually stand a chance now!

    The post is inaccurate regarding Novelties...unless they have changed it since last night.
    All of us 'Choya' were using kites last night; not sure which other Novelties might work.

    The chaotic energy is too strong.

    whats an honor "SYSTEM"? does it mean if you dont do cm fractals and do some other fractals with choya tonic and speak to the choya sage, the system tracks internally you're dishonorable? and that might be used in future content somewhere and this is some kinda another new version of the shadowstone "anomalous appearances" achi?

    That's the April Fool's joke.
    You don't have to do any of these to get the achievement, just talk to the Choya Sage in LA to get all of them for free.
    How many people will get pranked into unnecessarily running Fractal CM, capture SMC or what else?
    If anyone did get pranked and ran those for the achievements, I just hope they at least had fun.

    Combat tonics are always great. Temporary ones are a killjoy.

    Because I'm honest I did fractal 100 , capped things in WVW (including keeps + T3 structures) , did DRMs. However, the choya tonic doesn't work in Twilight Oasis which is one of the daily T4s today along with Cliffside which has Frailty (the shrink is considered a transform).

    Not sure what that means.

    That the chaotic energy caused a misspeak in the post?
    That the chaotic energy caused other Novelties to not work?
    That the chaotic energy caused, or did not cause, a change from last night in regards to some Novelties working?

    Please clarify, if you so desire.

    A choya, with a choya mini, with a choya balloon...why yes I enjoyed it! I hope this becomes a permanent one <3

    What would be the point?

    Combat tonics remain completely unusable outside of PvE rp because they wont maintain through mounts (and for WvW you dont even get the mount speed buff).

    gaggle - /ˈɡaɡ(ə)l/ - noun
    A disorderly group of Asura.
    "The gaggle of Asura tried to agree on whether a phase-shifted thermonuclear energy matrix was sufficiently powerful for a device capable of heating bread"

  • I was fooled and i enjoyed it a lot!
    When i realised i get anything for free and i made myself a fool, i wondered what the other player who saw me in WvW thought of me :))
    Thank you Anet for a big lough!

    Doesn't stop people from forming Choya armies. Was using it all night as were many others in WvW. Quite entertaining.

    Its too bad if the tonic only works for 7 days BUT could you guys at least enables it every aprils fools for a week, yearly. That's the compromise ;)

    Perhaps, it will end up like the Chatoyant Elixir, and become a permanent accessory (the next year), or something similar.

  • I did find it oddly satisfying to participate in the Choya Stampede as a Choya.

    Our world doesn't usually have this many people at this timezone but choyas came for some reason..

    This is the best thing I've seen all day. And granted, it's early, but you've set the bar pretty high.

    Should totally go to the ??? area in Jahai Bluffs as a choya. Wonder what that effect will do.

  • Yggranya.5201Yggranya.5201 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Do you explode when you die as a choya?

    I just put these on my "things to do in game today" list! :)

    Any chance this can be added to the wardrobe later?
    More combat tonics are always welcome but I don't want them hogging up space in my bank or inventory.. i'm already struggling with space limits on a maxed out bank and a close to maxed out main..
    There's so much stuff in this game lol

  • Zaxares.5419Zaxares.5419 Member ✭✭✭

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Choya tonic become a year-round thing. :) It's not really my thing (not being able to mount while transformed is a big con for me), but I have friends who absolutely love it, so why not let them enjoy it all the time?

  • Poormany.4507Poormany.4507 Member ✭✭✭

    Really love this tonic and would really like for it to be a permanent addition as well (maybe a Choyant Lens?). Don't really see any downsides to it being added permanently tbh as its really just fun to use and doesn't affect combat balance or anything.

  • Cynder.2509Cynder.2509 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'd really love to see a choya raid actually but sadly there's no achievement tied to it and also the tonic isn't available in raids please make it permanent because it would be so funny seeing a bunch of choyas kill bosses like Dhuum, Quadim or Gorseval

  • Its so funny, especially with hammer or greatsword. It would be great if it could be a permanent tonic ;)

  • Two things are sad, the first is that the best_tonic_ever will disappear on 6/4, the second one is that NOONE (noone) at marketing had the idea to made a contest for the best use of the choya tonic....

    My choya doesn't want to leave. Please make it a novelty tonic! Pretty Please! https://ibb.co/BnXKmZr

    Props to the person or persons who came up with this idea and got it implemented. You definitely caused numerous smiles with this one.

    The "Balance" is a fantasy -- another mortal superstition.

    I want it back!!! Let us use it! It was fantastic!!!! *ChoyaNoises*

    Praise Joko! And make necros great again!

  • Galmac.4680Galmac.4680 Member ✭✭✭

    Hey, please, can we get that tonic back working???

    Praise Joko! And make necros great again!
