First off Hello and welcome to my first post on the ArcheAge Source forums! Secondly, the quesiton:

I've heard one of the best tanking/heavy armor setups includes the skill trees battlerage, occult, and defense. Do you know what skills make it so good and if they intend to change it? Also, do you know if 2handed tanking can be a thing. Would you be able to have the DPS of the 2hander and be able to keep aggro compared to the sword/board. In some games sword/board setups get extra aggro generation does this apply to ArcheAge? I'm thinking that most foriegn MMO's do not have the same mentality, but
instead it acts as a tradeoff of having a lower DPS and higher survivability (sword/board) vs a higher DPS and lower survivability (2 hand / dual wield?).

Could you go into depth on specific skills and tactics that would differentiate these two? Will the 2 hander have more AoE, or would the sword/board setup have more AoE because of a common culture thinking the sword/board tank needs this?

Any and all information is helpful :)

Side Note: I'm not in the game yet, but this will help me get a general sense of direction and allow me to plan out what I would like to focus on when beta rolls around.
