    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).

    when Shiro (body guard to the emperor of cantha) killed the emperor the luxon and kuzick champions, archemorus and saint viktor both killed him with his own swords together (but we all know archemorus REALLY struck the killing blow now dont we...) after vizu distracted him. as he died he let out a curse which turned the sea of cantha into jade and the echovald forest became petrified

    thats probably the "lake" you are refering to

    EDIT: and it probably wont be turning back

    Picturing that in my head is really funny.

    Naga could work, not sure about centaur though.

    THIS is how you make a Bear so awesome that no one gets annoyed when they become playable!
    Norn can already turn into bears :S

    On topic: Tengu would probably fit the best lorewise, especially with Cantha being (presumably) the first continent which we return to in an expansion.

    I highly doubt we'll see centaur, like you said. They just (minus a few notable ones) don't seem to want to meddle in our affairs unless they're swinging a sword at us. Naga though, we've never really seen them as a friendly race or anything but hey who knows, Charr became nice and fuzzy afterall :3

    Horses can jump. I don't see why a centaur wouldn't be able to leap. Stealth, on the other hand... there's the "tauren rogue" issue. Muffle the hooves, maybe?

    You ask for more? Then come, traveler, to the Whispering Deep, where only the mad walk.

    Naga totally could... Pony men probably could be stealthy.... *ponders for a moment* I suppose as long as no one that hears you lives you could be stealthy....

    i dont think a centaur could contort and twist the way you do for leaping death blossom

    upside down horseman? that would look silly

    I don't think a Norn would contort and twist the same way an Asura would, either, but that doesn't mean they can't do it. As for the clopping, muffled hooves. Becomes more of a light tapping noise, if any noise at all.
