Best tip for BO is do not use aoe punt , or at least only in very special occasions. BO is one of the worst offenders for saving the lives of order by punting order toons to out of a moral drop or when almost dead. Both save the lives of manny order toons.

For me it took until rr70 and at least Bastion stair gear before I could feel 2h was partially useful, and then mainly only for SC .
So for oRvR SNB is go to spec even if 2h is more fun

I get that you don't want to give immunity to a lot of people, but if you've got a melee blob on your healer, you damn well better punt the entire clump away, or you won't have a healer anymore.

Most people will advice you to run with shield while levelling up. I levelled up almost exclusively with 2h but I would suggest which works best depends on how you play. If you level up via scenarios and small scale fights, you can go 2h even if low level but I strongly suggest to spend your renown in parry... and then parry and some anti crit while levelling up :).
Yes the shield can block stuff, but personally I rather have one reliable solid defense stat and work around it, than having both parry and block if it means having 2 dismal defense stats as a result.
However, if you expect to play overly aggressively with lots of strength and crit chance while levelling up, you will likely blow up A LOT with 2h. Also remember you are still expected to guard the squishies.
That said, if you play predominantly in warbands, definitely go with shield or the AOE will tear you apart.

Get good at using Change Da Plan. That is what makes a great Black Orc.

Considering the shitty range ur healer will be dead anyway..the only use for bo aoe punt is to punt people off bridge-cliffs-into lava-or towers

what would yall recommend you get as a fresh 40 around rr50? i have completed redeye and most of BL. assume the WS from BL will go a long way for black orc and seems easy to fit in with pocket, ring and whatever else.

i am coming from playing another 2h tank and so i really appreciate the 2/3 pc from redeye. boots have a nice -1% chance to be crit and the 2/3 pc are - chance to be crit and armor.

know offhand of some nice pve/low rr rvr set combos you can make work for 2h BO? for example w chosen you can run invader 4pc and the overlord helm/shoulders and skip WL entirely because invader 4pc is nothing but solid stats of toughness str and wounds and the overlord has very nice -% to be crit on each piece and a wounds set bonus.

anything similar like that early on for BOs? or should i just pve beeline to bloodlord?

"Best tip for BO is do not use aoe punt..."
This ! ^

You wull learn, when to punt. Nine times out of ten you will never need to or have to. Many low rank BOs punt on CD and it will ruin a push and or save Order lives.
