My Charr makes like that Quaggan in Gendarran Fields when facing other Charr:

"I'm gonna kick your tail so hard, It slaps you in the face!"

YAAAS

I have a friend whose sylvari often says rusted thorns as a curse. Both our sylvari use sprout and sapling as an insult.
Fleshbag/meatsack/bloodsack insults for most non-sylvari races. I've heard sylvari npcs use words like cad though so I assume they're not above using regular insults that aren't plant based or made up.

Also seen a lot of characters calling sylvari salads as an insult!

You missed my favourite asuran curse!
"Well, I'll be a skritt's shiny!" Usually a statement of strong disbelief, same as "well, I'll be a monkey's uncle."

Then there is the ritual greeting between inquest agents:
"How are e machinations progressing?"
"I'm not at liberty to say."

A new one used by asura progeny me and my guild noticed yesterday:

"Excelsiorific!" a portmanteau of Excelsior and Terrific.

Progeny asura seem to have their own little subculture of slang. They use "Greets!" while other asura do not.

My sylvari uses one epithet based on relatively recent events, and usually for someone she REALLY hates, but it's not really racial persay.

"May you rot forever in the hell betwixt Zhaitan's tails."

Some of the many sayings from my grumpy guardian. A once zephyrite.

"May you find peace in the skies"
"Winds guide me/you"
"Apsects preseve me/them/you"
"May your strikes be as quick and unpredictable as lightning"
"May you find shelter under her crystalline wings."

"Glint's scales!" (expression of surpise)
"Prophet of the sky, guide me"
"You are as reliable as a Mursatt in the last cycle."

"You are unpleasant as a grounding day"
"You rumble more then a storm"
"Are you steady as the sun, or as swift as a storm?"
