Tengu are practically guaranteed, especially since they will have a city in an expansion as confirmed by a dev (I'm not linking it, since I'm on mobile).
As for others, I'm open to centaurs, naga, and MAYBE kodan (they might make a better non-playable ally). For naga and centaurs, there would have to be considerable story added to introduce either of them.
Centaurs would likely involve some references to Ventari, which of course means there would have to be a mass exodus of a group of centaurs away from standard pillaging and killing.
Naga could go any direction. According to the Guild Wars wiki, there were once naga that were friendly with humans, but apparently some lake crystalized, or something. So there would have to be some catalyst that brings them back to that state (whether it's reconciliation or realization of the danger of the dragons).
To be perfectly honest, I'll be content with just Tengu. It's about time some game had playable birdies. Now, if only we could convince Arena Net to make their next MMO (new IP) have playable dragons, we could have pure awesomeness and take away Istaria's playable dragon monopoly (worst monopoly ever, too... The trial bored me to tears).
thats probably the "lake" you are refering to
EDIT: and it probably wont be turning back
not to shoot any one down but first playable races have to be bipedal a centaur/naga will never happen because animations for leaping death blossom and other skills just wont work/look right
On topic: Tengu would probably fit the best lorewise, especially with Cantha being (presumably) the first continent which we return to in an expansion.
