For DPS: Cloth armor, no shield.

For tanking: Medium/Heavy armor, large shield.

For balance: Medium armor, small shield.

Note that 1H sword is middle of the road. Won't be as good at DPS as longsword, won't be as good at tanking as spears.

Also note that shield affects DPS QUITE a bit... attack speed takes a large drop because of it. But their defense is generally comparable with a piece of armor (non chest) of the same level.
Being single is a balance between loneliness and happiness. You're lonely right before going to sleep and happy the rest of the day...

Just to pipe in, I would argue against ever using a large shield. The defense increase over small shield is marginal, but the delay increase is significant. And at higher levels, you get resist out of the small ones too.

That being said, I've heard large shields may + better, but for a half second increase in delay, (worse than medium chest to heavy chest), not to mention no resist, they better + a WHOLE lot better.

get provoke, arm break, and shield break. those are must haves. mana leech is also helpful in tough situations. i personally use daggers and small shields when i tank, for the faster speed.
