Default New EL tonic prices

As is the case with any new bday items these first few days will have outrageously high prices for the items. Now that the presents are el tonics that can be used in explorable areas the prices are even higher than normal. Given that these tonics will have the same "drop" rate as the minipets that came before, how much do you see the prices dropping? I believe that if you take an everlasting kunna tonic for instance, people are trying to sell for over 600e, but perhaps in a couple of weeks it will drop to 250-300e. Do yall agree with this?

Only if you buy it really cheap and resell for twice as much that same day.

An hour after the update hit, saw one person selling a destroyer (green) .. That and the kuuna are probably the coolest 2, anyway the c/o was 29 armbraces, dont know what it finally sold for but it went from a 100e bid up to a stack then the 29 armbrace offer..

I got a Sousuke, got offered 25e .. should probably take it..

Like coast said, don't buy 'm early unless you can resell.. quite some money can be made of the first couple days of new pets/tonics in this case. The prices of all the tonics will drop dramaticaly in the coming weeks and then slowly degrade like the minipets before them did. I do think the green, gold and maybe purple tonics will keep its value better then the mini's.. not stack of ectos+ but could see 'm staying higher since they're just quite coolio.

Ah-ha, i read this after buying one of those EL tonics for a "good" price, and then realizing that prices were already dropping....i've learned the lesson at least(started trading like 3 weeks ago).

Managed to resell fast enough to lose only 6 ectos....

This should be sure for white/purple tonics at least. Gold/Green ones, due to awesomeness and rarity will stay more stable imo.

The only reason to buy these anytime soon would be to resell. The ppl that buy them at the high prices.....have too much flow and don't care...are too impatient...are dumb...or even think they might be able to resell for profit.

The prices have already fallen to aroung 20-30e for all commons and will drop again. Remember these are not rare since they are Bday presents.....there are a lot of them showing up everyday. Heck I have a guildy that has 35 accounts, which will be recieving pressies soon.

I'm already laughing at the people who bought margo tonics etc, 850e? Simple people on this game, will enjoy watching them Q.Q in a few weeks.
