We already can play the infamous Charr, the Norn, the Asura, the Sylvari, And of course Humans, but is there any kind of race you would like to see as playable?
Tengu maybe? Naga like race? Or maybe a new race yet to be discovered?
Feel free to post your thoughts on what Race you would like to see and why.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Tengu avian race as playable or something similar. They always seemed a bit interesting next to Charr for me.

Easily my first choice would be the race of Rock Beetles, Madness Titans, etc. I want to play a squeaky little spherical insect thing; I imagine they have a wealth of culture and history hidden behind those adorable noises.
Or Tengu. Probably Tengu.

After meeting the Tengu in GW2 with their redesigned looks: Tengu. Without a doubt. They look so awesome and would fit with the other five races.
Quaggans would be cute but they're a lesser race and I don't think they're intelligent enough. Plus, I would prefer if ArenaNet didn't mess with them. Quaggans are awesome and should stay as they are.
EDIT: I don't see any Naga doing jumping puzzles.

Tengu and Centaur. If you're looking for Tengu, there are a few in LA. The 'lesser' races are interesting, but I don't think they'd work well as playable...yet.

Tengu are the clear choice for a Cantha-based expansion. Apart from that, I think there's not a whole lot viable player races.
Also thinking about new professions, I fear the weapon system has locked a.net in. Adding a single weapon is virtually impossible because only a certain set of classes would gain 5 skills, yet leaving it to the new profession would be stupid too. Adding two weapons would have to split the current classes 50/50 which would force lore into game design. In my opinion all classes should have access to all weapons and for expansions that might become a necessity.
