Lately I have been craving playing a sword and board type character..
Ive tried doing this in a number of games outside Gw2 and ive found im almost always forced to the 'Tank role' if i wield a shield.
So after a quick overview of the Warrior type classes in gw2, it would seem that i would still be forced in to a defensive persona.
The guardian - has very clearly defined itself as a defensive profession, which is fine.
The warrior - Seems to have great potential to be a more traditional dps profession (don't start with the trinity bit, im just talking superficial feel here)
But looking at the skills i would get with a weapon+shieldit doesn't really scream damage. or an "aggressive force"
Is it possible to play a s&b character and feel like a force to be reckoned with and not a sponge?
Recommendations and suggestions for achieving this?
