I guess now we can compare all races with each other.

My plan was to go with a Highelf DK Tank/DPS and the racials support that really well.Because:The boost 1 of the 3 weapon sets which I plan to useMost of my abilities will be magicka basedand most of my damage will be fire dmg.

Argonians are fish, fish make bad tanks.

After seeing the racials I've now decided on Orc. I guess you could pick any of the AD races. There doesn't seem to be a clear winner for tanking in AD, it would depend on playstyle, as you said.

I really like the ultimate of the orcs and the other racials are also really nice for a tank but I don't like the look of orcs.

If you plan on playing a PvE tank and like to feel a bit unique and important; then you should *seriously* consider rolling in the Aldmeri Dominion. My guess is that they will have a serious lack of tanks. A vast majority of all Altmers will be light armor casters, the majority of all bosmer will go archery and the majority of all khajiit will be sneaky melee dps. On the PvE side you don't compete with races from the other factions anyway. Dungeons will be locked and tuned to one faction only...

 

The Ebonheart Pact have two tank options (Argonian and Nord) and Daggerfall have one (Orsimer). 

 

All three factions will probably have healers (Altmer, Argonians and Brenton) - although Argonians does not really make better healers once restoration staff is maxed out (still, the XP bonus to restoration staff will bring healers to the faction). Argonians might actually make great templars (as they have mostly 12m pbaoe heals and buffs) since they on average will be closer to the action and might need to self heal now and then (taking advantage of that healing received buff).

I think Orc will be best for tanking.
