Tengu is a given as people have said, they have a city in Tyria which we can't enter, they are all over there as guards, there is artwork showing different versions of them heads, artwork etc.
If they are NOT

Quaggan would be great, my guild loves them so do I however they are more or less a peaceful race I don't see much they would attack unless the lore brings in with Dragons attacking them and they wish to defend themselves etc. If they did become a race I think it would be a lot of underwater for the personal story.

Largos haven't met them yet, yet they look like something from Aion from the wiki page pic but I think I would be wrong there

Kodun has the lore for it, so they could come in however we haven't seen much of them.

Tengu is obvious. I'd be surprised if they weren't added. Largos seem very mysterious and interesting imo, although there isn't much lore about them -yet. they also have a fairly normal body that would be pretty easy to customize. I'd totally play both a largos and a tengu if they were avaliable.

Also, about Bubbles, maybe as some ppl said he will force them out of the ocean and that will make them have no choice but to cooperate with the other races. ^_^

I believe the Tengu are pretty much a given for the Cantha expansion, which is likely going to be our first. And out of all the possible known races for Elona (Centaur, Forgotten, Hylek), I'd say that the Hylek/Heket is most likely. They already had a bit of a story going on in Elona in GW1, and I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted an alliance to help put Palawa Joko back in his place. I'm also very interested to see if Palawa's undead continue to have minds and stories of their own. As weird as it is, those undead seemed to be one of the most sentient and civilized "races" in Elona, so they could very well end up as a future race.

I deffinately think we're going to be involved with the Largos in the future, perhaps in an expansion that takes us somewhere around the Seer/Mursaat homelands or the land and waters West and South of the Maguuma. Maybe it's just me, but I see a bit a similarity between them and the Seers from GW1, although I'm sure it's not them.

Remember that the less humanoid the race looks, the less probable it is to be added. This is because of things such as animation, equipment, etc...

I really love the Quaggans too but I can't ever see them being playable. It's not even so much that they're a peaceful race (because that can always be forced to change when being peaceful means going extinct) but moreso because they seem so lazy and leisurely.

Whenever I'm exploring the world I often come across Quaggans complaining that something is too hard. (like crab farming or looking after their young)

I can't imagine many of them having the discipline to become a skilled Elementalist.

Why do people keep saying this? We don't need Cantha in order to get Tengu, there are Tengu in Tyria already.

Races we need:

Kodan- The boss Polar bears that stand on 2 legs and are seen with hammers. Theres a few iceberg villages full of them in Frostgorge sound. I thought they were just brutes, but they're on a religious level closely related to Norn.

Largos- Badass Russian butterfly looking assassins divided into "houses".

Skritt- idiotic, hilarious rats that share collective knowledge, which can be dangerous and makes them smarter than even the Asura (gasp I knooooow!)

Tengu- those awesome bird ppl from GW 1, 250 years made them even cooler.

Quaggan- I personally hate these creatures, and I'm sad I helped them through one of the Personal Story quests. They are annoying, they look retarded, but some ppl like them.

Because we know we will be revisiting Cantha and Elona, and probably early on. The Tengu are the most developed race that isn't playable at the moment, and the Tengu in LA pretty much tell you that they will be fighting with the other races in the future. At the same time, Zhaitan isn't blocking passage to Cantha anymore (I'm guessing Zhaitan was in some way defeated, but I've been taking my time in-game, so idk). It's still a guess, but it's a whole lot more probable than Tengu being involved in a non-Canthan expansion.

Plus, there really isn't another race that could fit into the story of Cantha quite like the Tengu, and who have such a similar culture.

Kodan being almost twice the size of some norn, I don't think we'll see them as playable. Lore would suggest that Skritt cannot become playable characters, as when they are not in a group they lose most cognitive function.


So lagos or tengu.

Largos.. meh. Tengu I like a lot, and would probably have a pretty great storyline. What I really want is to be a Skritt. :cool:
