it all depends on the damage bonuses that the weapons give... if a find a shield worthy enough and with allot of def.. than probably ill go with sword+shield.. if on the other hand i find a pair of good 1h weapons than dual wield..not a big fan of 2h weps.
It all depends for me. If you are able to respec the skill tree, then it will all depend on what does best when leveling the barb. If you can not, then I will have multiple barbs, each for a specific purpose.
My favorite was always the dual wielding sword type though.

What is best in life? To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
I might dual wield or go shield + 1handed. I will adjust my play style depending on how the game will go. I need to be able to beat hell mode, and even though there are a LOT of defensive/tanking skills, I might even need a shield to survive. But hell, if I can survive with more damage, I'll go with 2 weapons!
when i make my barbarian he will use whatevr he gets his hands onto, as long as its beter in the long run, looks may be a varying factor probably more so then stats, but hell ill kill things either way, might as well look cooler
