Another Noobish Question: Concerning Weapons Choices

I created a Tempest yadayada and was wondering, since I want to fill the damage role and not the tank, can I still use a sword and shield and be considered a damage dealer, or is it like most fantasy MMORPG's where using a shield makes you a tank?

    I don't really know if this is actually true, as I don't have a Warrior yet, but I've read/heard that the top DPS spec right now uses... sword and board, amazingly enough!


    So yeah... if that is true, then right now it would appear that your tankyness is defined not really by your weapon choice, but by your armor (toughness and defensive stats versus crit, attack power and other offensive stats) and spec.
