Sadly, a Sword Warrior isn't very viable in PvP due to the lack of damage comparatively to an Axe Warrior. However, in the PvE environment, a Sword Warrior is preferable because of the tactical advantages they have.
But, I'm not 100% up to date on the current meta-game, so take my words as you will. But, I do know that if you want to run a Sword Warrior in PvP, you should get Factions. There are much better sword attacks there.

Actually, that's a very popular tactic for PvP Warriors. Try this as well:
Get an Icy mod for your sword, and take along the skill Spinal Shivers. When you come up to a boss or a target that casts a lot of skills that needs to be shut down, put Spinal on it then just attack it normally. No more skills from that target.
So many ways to skin a cat...you just have to think of them (or borrow them from someone else).
I've had a Warrior/Necro from day 1, and they work well! (Never used swords much, I'm not a fan...I've always been an axe-fan...and in this game the axe is great, so, suits me! )
I just started playing a W/N and I am really enjoying it.
To the person that posted about the spinal & chll, Thanks I'll give that a try.
I shoot for the curve... anything above that is gravy.

Good call, Bent. I'll bet that what you're talking about would be really effective in PvE as well. I hadn't even really concidered Quickening Blade because I go R/W.
I made this badass hammer warrior who has 4 knockdowns. I could combo them so the poor healer would be killed in one combo.
It was badass. I would sprint @ them and use bull's strike, then just combo them to death. It was AWESOME!
Yeah, a couple new elite sword attacks were added in Factions making a sword warrior CONSIDERABLY more viable. Not to mention the extra non-elite sword skills that were added that make them that much nicer. Sword still can't really out damage an Axe, but at least now it's an option.
