Here are my thoughts for Wyrmic:
Lightning Speed: Convert next attack to lightning damage.
Static Field: Sustain. Each turn there is a chance of releasing a small chain lightning. Adds lightning damage to your attack with Lightning Speed.
Ice Wall: Freeze creatures caught in wall.
Devouring Flames: Add burning to initial targets.
Quake: Change to physical+disarm
Burrow: allow you to swap places with enemies
Ember Scales: Adds light radius, burns adjacent creatures and leaves a trail of fire at 5.

Sea Drake Aspect- each talent point increases max air.
Fog Cloud: Blinding aoe
Water Dweller: Sustain. Gives life and equilibrium regeneration when you are underwater or inside one of your water aoes.
Flood: Drowning aoe.
Water Breath: Water damage cone that scale with strength.

Wind Drake Aspect
Flyby Slash: Ranged melee attack at target that teleports you near them. Each point increases movement speed.
Claw Dance: Attack all creatures adjacent to you. Each point increases you attack speed.
Cloud Seer: Negative sustain cost, increases sight range. Each point increases mind speed.
Wing Buffet: Buff to full breath damage. Each point increases global speed.

I really like your wyrmic ideas, both for the new trees and for making Quake and Ice Wall not-useless talents

Updated with Wyrmic and other goodies.

In addition to the Wyrmic stuff:
Psiclaws now functions as a mastery talent in addition to its existing bonuses.
Many Druid talents buffed.
New scaling applied to passives.
3 new infusions.

I was a megaturtle/mindslayer on Insane difficulty. Met The Shade (boss) on Kor Pul (3) that had a set of your either druid or werebeast talents (downpour and something else as active and sustained). Error begun to popup when he was about to die (maybe he was trying to use one of healing abilities?)

I'll check the code when I get home, but I'm worried that this might be caused by a different addon.

Okay, adding a check to ensure that the quiver slot exists and contains gems.

i wish you kept new content (classes, races etc.) and alterations to existing mechanics in separate add-ons.

Any particular reason?

Things were overlapping between the addons, so it was easier to merge them.
The alternative is to divide the pack into 4 seperate addons.

After using them for a while:

Water Dweller should be increased somewhat. It's currently not worth it, perhaps 2.5 life and 0.5 eqil regen per talent level? Remember that they already have Fungus, alongside literally 500 other options to pick from, so there needs to be a worth in going down that tree.

Water Breath's icon doesn't match the other breaths. (Serious issue, breaks my immersion.)

Flyby Slash is... odd, to say the least. It can be used from melee, it can go through walls, and it can put you in the same spot (if within range 3).
My ideas for that would include:
A static range, perhaps 3, would give it use with some short-range talents in their other trees, and also make it a slight-disengage talent.
Stop it from wall hopping. It's the worst thing ever to be teleported out of a thin hallway into a nearby room with enemies in it. (I haven't had it happen yet, but Wyrmics being nature based... theres a chance this could happen on a vault wall, no?)
Perhaps give a minor defense boost after used, as though the wind was helping defend them after their quick rush.

Love Claw Dance & Cloud Sear.

Wing-Buffet is still a fairly weak talent, imo, and isn't worth the 4th slot. Perhaps a boost to the global speed given to 2%?

Water Dweller also makes you immune to the Fog Cloud and Flood. But I'll up its bonusses.

I haven't worked out how to stop Flyby Slash leaping you through walls yet. Maybe a LOS check.

Will nerf Claw Dance and Cloud Seer.... Joking. :P

I'll add an extra debuff to Wing Buffet.

It is a matter of personal preference. Sometimes i want to play new races and/or classes but without changes to existing ones, sometimes i wanna try modified existing one but dont want to meet NPCs with skills from new classes or don't want to find items i'll never need that you've put into your add-on (for example: oxygen infusion, btw you didnt mention them in description nor changelogs) because they take up drop slot instead of more useful ones.

I did mention Oxygen Infusion. I said there were three new infusions. :lol:

Hmmm, I might be able to put some switches into the addon to control which parts will be loaded. But I'm not sure how that will work when it would have to load the addon to load the switches. :/
