Nord female DK sounds like a hoarse hag

Hope I don’t violate any ToS by using the word “hag”, but trying to create a new character and can’t find any voice that doesn’t sound like an old woman smoking and drinking too much. Have tried A and F but deleted both new toons. The other voices in the character creation menu also sound awful. Strange ESO hasn’t improved voices since 2014. At least let us hear in the character creation menu how yelling sounds when sprinting a horse, since there is much riding in Cyro.

    The voices have nothing to do with your class, only your race.

    I usually have to remake a character a few times before I’m reasonably happy with all choices, including voice. And as @Vevvev pointed out, voice options depend on race (some are options for multiple) and nothing to do with class. If you don’t like any of the options, you may want to choose a different race.

    I need Nord because I want to play tank.

    You could make an Imperial, then.
    Anyway, you can tank on pretty much any race, just have to adapt your build accordingly.

    just so you know there's a quote button at the bottom of posts when other people reply to you and if you use it then it makes your post clearer to read instead of making a quote yourself

    You could embrace it! Make your character a decrepit old clever woman / bog witch who did not drag her creaky 120-year-old bones out of the swamp to be pushed around by some bratty little "Trial Boss" with 999 million HP.

    There is a compilation of all player voices that you can see: https://eso.mmo-fashion.com/player-character-voices/

    They do include mount voices in the linked videos.

    You can play any race as a tank. Imperial is actually an excellent choice for the racial passives as well.

    so make a male, see if you like one of those voices, if you do, wear full gear and a helmet. No one will ever know.

    There is one for female Nords that's high pitched and young sounding, voice D I think it was. It's also quite loud, the actress really held nothing back. Also, can't remember which letter, it's somewhere near the bottom of the list, but one of those voices laughs like a cartoon villain when you use the /lol emote, it's pretty funny. But aside from that female Nords really don't have the greatest voices.

    I tank with Khajiit. No one dies, no one complains, and my tank makes a cute “rrrrah!” sound whenever he bashes things.

    I tank with a wood elf night blade. I call her the little ball of hate. XD

    I have done that as well. Looks good on the creation screen but by level 8 or 9 I've decided I really don't like them and then I start all over again.
