    in first days there are uselss but on updates they will become more important...
    even for example sk is not bad cause of bleed/cubics/paralyze and other debuffs

    i would say, it depends on the reason why you want to play tank.
    if you wanna be aggressive, da or sk
    if you wanna be defensive, pala or tk

    pala has sacrifice and high con, tk has cubics and high dex (both are defensive)
    da has harmstring, stun, panther... (quite aggressive)
    sk is without panther but has more debuffs than da, has even anchor...

    for aggressive people;
    play style is like, spam the stun and hit... (probably you will keep him permanently stunned, unless he is +3 level above you)
    and use your debuff palette...

    for defensive;
    well, i hope you are in a party and your job is to agro whoever attacks your healer or agro enemy healer and stun whoever you can.
    for solo is not that fun to pvp.

    for pve is all the same, next target agro, next target agro...

    they are all strong depending on what you like the most, however to generalize, da seems strongest, due to spamming stun and killing with panther.

    cubics are to expensive on l2c, so forget to use them.

    if i remember u need crystals to summon cubics. and as you know there is huge adena problem in l2classic so i dont think its worth to use cubics. maybe someone who plays on ru will say how much crystals r needed to summon cubic

    depends on what you want to do man. pve will be a huge part of classic so a tank with good pve potential will go a long way. sk is perfect because of his hex and phantom cubic (another hex that stacks on top of hex). this will be perfect for an archer party. his low hp and lack of stun limit him in a mass pvp. lightning strike is a paralysis spell with a questionable land rate and a long cooldown and has 0 impact on a large battle (my observations). a good choice for a more of a pvp tank is da as others mentioned. much more base hp/cp, shield bash, hamstring.
    in any case, if you want to make an impact in a pvp with a tank, you need a lot of gear. armor, jewels, a decent bow alongside your sword and shield. another downside is that tanks are kind of unpopular when you make a party. even for raids people do just fine if the sws or destro tanks. some raids dont even require a tank. good luck :)

    just to hype you a bit :
