    short answer: No

    Long answer:
    No we dont know, not all souls have been released and the ones that where leaked from the conventions have not been confirmed or expanded upon in any way shape or form from Trion its all just Alpha/pre-beta speculation....
    "Few are selected to to gaze into the chasm that gave us our power, most are devoured from within, yet a chosen few have the will to walk away from such discord and torment with the true knowledge of what we serve. Transformed with eyes of pure hatred, of utter disdain, bound to its will, the embodiment of a demon. And I, the greatest of its children, am here to show you true pain..." -Maerawn

    play yourself a real druid like vanguard, or EQ2. But really my favorite druid was Vanguard you actually controlled the elements, and the phenomenon mechanic was really cool.

    So far if you look at the soul pages we are missing around 5 I think mage classes since its starting to look like 8 classes per calling are intended to be available. So the info has not been released yet

    There is a druid in the cleric calling, and a video out there showing a faerie pet, not sure if it's one and the same yet.

    dont think the druids here will be able to fulfill all 3 roles , hopefully they will be good healers, since they listed them in the cleric archtype, how they do it is unkown but should be fun to see how they heal.

    to the Op.. nothing that can change shapes so far but the closest your going to come to a druid atm is the Warden soul that HoT heals.

    The WoW Warlock can shape-shift into a Demon.

    Powerful Melee attacks, 600% armour contribution. It's a Rift-like 51 point talent.

    And it's about the best looking spell effect in the game for a class.

    WOW Druids are a unique beast (bad pun intended). I don't foresee something with that extreme versatility being in Rift.
    Lapdogs, all of you!

    Default shapeshifter?

    It would be interesting I think, to have a mage class that can shapeshift and fight in melee range though. Not what WoW's druid was, but a shifter class of some sort.

    Go play a Herald of Xotli in AoC. They're pretty much exactly what you just described. I don't know how good they are anymore since I haven't played that game in a very long time, but when they popped into their demon form, it hurt.

    It would suck if Rift doesnt have any shape shifters.

    Nightblade 51 root (Living Flames) reads like it will turn the Nightblade into a fire elemental "fiery manifestation" for a moment.

    It is probably just a tad rich on the flowery description, but it might be a sign that they're open to short term shape shifting as buffs. (Not necessarily your typical werewolf or wow druid forms though).

    Question

    Why would you need to shapeshift for different skills when you can just pop a different buff and use another soul?

    If they do add a shape-shifter, I hope it's more of a utility class. I didn't like how in WoW, balance druids were boomkins. Resto druids were trees. Feral druids were either lions or bears. There were a couple of movement transformations, but it felt like the shifting mechanic was going to waste. As Mirarii said, there might not be much use for shifters in Rift because everyone will have quad specs and access to 8 different classes. It's a neat idea, but not so much for this particular game.
