    Argonians are great but Bretons have strong passives that aid in sap tanking.

    For example the 4k spell resist means that you don't have to wear spell mitigation armour to get close to the cap. It allows you to run a set like 4 piece allesias bullwark and a 5 piece damage set like julianos or kagrenacs. 33 000 mit is the cap but if you get to 30 000 buffed you are doing just fine. Every 650 mit is 1% reduction.

    The 3% reduced magic cost is great paired with the CP since the cheaper we get our swallow souls the more times we can spam it to proc Siphoning attacks. My light attack siphon return is more than the cost of swallow soul. So if Im LA weaving soul its basically free to cast.

    10% more magic allows you to not only have a larger pool but increass your damage and your shields. More damage means stronger heals.

    Mine's an imperial. 10% stam and 12% health is something that can't be had from cp. Almost everything else can.

    Nord and dark elf wouldn't be bad either. I like max stats on tanks personally.

    Argonian, high elf and breton would work too and provide more sustain. But you have Siphoning... Already great sustain.

    Argonian if only for the poison resistance. The extra healing probably works out the same as an extra 10% magicka.

    But white bretons can't swim xD
    The biggest problem within this game is the lack imagination on its player base and its developers...

    No race, a sap tank is probably the most useless build you can bring to PvP. If you want to play a tank, Dk and Sorc provide way more utility.

    Thats not necessarily true. While I agree that DKs are stronger in general, a sap tank can still provide strong damage while mitigating incoming as well.

    I used to tank hords of Reds in IC arena using bolstering darkness and proxy/sapping the mobs down. My job was never to straight up kill like a bomb blade but to distract and provide some damage while my team took down the Reds.

    Bolstering darkness is a 60% damage mitigation Ult. Its the strongest if its kind in the game and lasts 15 plus seconds. Viel of blades is also amazing.

    Couple this with restoring path, rapid regen, sap essence, the healing form of the 1H and shield reflect and harness magicka and you are as tanky as it gets. Sap is block castable, is a group heal and porcs siphon attacks.
