Absolutly loving the sword and shield combo for questing and exploring the zones. Tanky is a good thing.

Warriors are a great class.

Pros:
-In PvE
---High Damage output
---Excels with 2-handed weapons (Greatsword is the widely considered best weapon set for a Warrior)
---Highly Mobile
---Tankier then other classes (Heavy Armor, on par with the Guardian)
-In PVP (WvW)
---THE BEST roaming character due to high mobility
---High Burst Damage
---Warrior Support Build (Buffs, Banners) is a very effective high level PvP build.

Cons:
-In PvE
---Not many ranged abilities
---Lacks regeneration/heals compared to other classes
---If focusing on DPS, not many buffs for the group.
-In PvP (WvW)
---VERY EASILY kited
---Considered the Second Tier of Profession
---1v1 is poor vs 5/8 of the professions
---Not many buffs UNLESS gear and builds are focused PURELY on support, which in turn greatly lowers your overall damage Output.
