<DIV>Ever since I made my paladin I have used sword and shield because I have tanked in every single group. I have tried 2H even when i solo, and still I think I it is much more efficient to use sword and shield.</DIV>

<DIV>When I want to do as much damage as possible I have found two handed to have the best DPS.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>When I want to Tank then the shield gives nice defense. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So basicly solo or as a secondary tank i use two handed and when im tanking i use sword and shield.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>that is until I can get my hands on the Sword of Thunder. :smileywink:</DIV>

<DIV>If your going to be a Paladin, a shield is a must. At 34, my sheild has more AC than my Brestplate. These days, finding a group where I'm not Main Tank are far and few. Paladins are usually the second choice to tank in groups, with guardians being first choice.</DIV>

Solo, green^^ I use a 2H (hehe most of the time, but some of them require me to switch during battle) As a sec tank, 2H. But, as a main tank I always use a 1H and a shield. So basically, its really up to the situation youre finding yourself in. But its always good to have the option, so I advise you to always have both awailable. A good 2H, and a good set of 1H and shield <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />You might never know when you gonna need the one or the other.

<DIV>Same with me.. When main tank you will most likely need a 1H and a shield. When assisting, go for the 2H as you don't need the extra AC and the DPS will  be better with a good 2 hander. If your choosing what to buy, a good one hander and shield is more important but be sure to invest in a 2 hander afterwards.</DIV>
