I have seen several beta guides to the new druid ability Symbiosis. Some of the language imputes that the druid and target will swap the abilities rather than gain new ones. Can someone clarify that point?

You get an extra ability, it's not a trade but a copy.

Pretty sure you're just gaining new ones, not swapping the abilities.The tooltip says "Grants one ability to the druid" and "grants one of the druid's abilities" .. not swap or exchange.

As I understand it, when a druid casts Symbiosis on another player, the druid will gain one ability from that player, and the player will gain one ability from the druid. The abilities gained/swapped will vary depending on the spec of both the druid and the other player.For example, if a Resto Druid cast Symbiosis on a Holy Paladin, the druid would gain Hand of Sacrifice, and the paladin would gain Rebirth. However, if a Guardian Druid cast Symbiosis on a Holy Paladin, the druid would gain Consecration instead (the paladin would still gain Rebirth).

Each will gain a new ability, based on what class/spec Symbiosis is cast on. Saw a forum thread a few weeks back with people panicked and enraged that Druids would be 'stealing their abilities'.

"Each will gain a new ability, based on what class/spec Symbiosis is cast on. "So close. The druid gains an ability based on the druid's spec and the target's class; a resto druid gains Hand of Sacrifice no matter what spec the paladin is, while a guardian druid gains Consecrate (only the symbiotic version deals nature damage instead of holy). The target gains an ability based on the target's spec; a shadow priest gains Tranquility, while a healing priest gains Cyclone, no matter what spec the druid is.
