    No point in using shield until you have high level EE ... and you ae facing archers in pvp.
    2H gives better overall DPS and consumes less SS due to lower attack speed -> nobrainer

    Except that, in classic block rate is based on constitution , which make dwarves the class with the highest block rate of the game.

    But yeah with -10 CON go for 2H

    Except that, in Classic... Unbuffed dwarf's chance to block normal frontal melee hit is ~33% (20% with -15CON, 50% with +12CON), adding a bit to his already very high p.def.
    Shield provides ZERO benefit from behind, unless you have high level tanking skills. It actually lowers your evasion, but that is arguably just as meaningless.
