Hey! I like to play on Aldmeri dominion, and i want to make a dragonknight tank. But none of the "classic" tank races are there, so which one should i choose? Is Khajiit the only viable option, or?

Thanks for help!

    I'd take a Bosmer for resistances and stamina boost (regeneration gets better in 1.6). Actually, I do have a Bosmer DK tank and it works just fine. But I don't know, none of the AD races are particularly suited for tanking from the min-maxing perspective. Can you go Imperial or look around the interwebs for Explorer's Pack codes?

    Okay thanks! So bosmer is the best alternative if i don't want to pay for an imperial then. I actually haven't thought of that possibility, is it worth the money? I don't know much about imperials, except that they have plusses when it comes to health regeneration or something? That would mean they're kind of similar to orcs? (Which I know are very good for tanking).

    Imperial > All for tanks, especially DK tanks.

    Tl;dr really weigh the fun you have in game vs the business practices you are supporting.

    Altmer for DK, basically Dunmer without the stamina boost, instead you get magicka regen, meaning you can throw more stats into stamina and have a balanced build rather than a tank that stands there and blocks and does nothing. Imperial as yoda pointed out, but if you don't have it, Altmer for sure

    Okay thanks for good advice! I went off and bought the imperial pack, so now I'm running around in auridon as soon to be (hopefully) great tank :-)

    Good races for tanks:
    - Imperial (max stats)
    - Nord (damage mitigation)
    - Argonian (healing received)
    - Orc (smell)
    - Bosmer (stamina recovery)

    Attention with the nord! The damagfe mitigation caps with the mitigation from armour and resistance. So full tanks have just <1% from this 6%. The 6% are just fine if you are far under the cap.
