So I watched Wooden Potatoes’ video about the Druid teaser and he had some pretty good speculation about what exactly Druid might be.
One of the theories is that Druid may gain the ability to “Attune” to different facets of nature, much like the Elementalist Attunes to the elements. This coupled with the fact that some “Glyph” icons were data-mined a while back and they were not used for the Tempest makes it a pretty solid theory that the druid may be a kind of nature themed mage.
But my personal favorite of his speculations, was the theory that the druid may be able to interact with their pet in a new way. MOUNTING! He speculates near the end of the video that the pet shown in the teaser artwork is not a pet we currently have access to and is quite large. That plus the fact that in the Maguma Jungle there are several new types of enemies that have the mechanics to ride mounts makes the theory just this side of plausible. I think this is most likely not the case but I would love to see druids riding around on their pets and using their pets to charge enemies and such, it would be awesome! But I’m not holding my breath.
Also, I’ll leave this here for your enjoyment.
