Sword and Shield or Claymore - donno ..... I love pure melee damage but SAO doesn't have healers so I'm leaning towards sword and shield just so I wouldn't be a burden.

EDIT - as for armor, Medium to heavy depending on the situation.

Medium for Boss fights since Boss blows seem incredibly deadly in this game and Heavy for regular PVE so I could absorb more damage and up my STR END & AG

seems like a hell of a game to play since a lot of the old engrained fighting styles would have to be redone (IMHO)

ummm wonder if scythe ok ....if yes then it would be scythe and light armour or chain armour with some long sword for some back up for any chance .....

when i play mmo i usually try to choose characters with high dexterity or movement speed ...well charcters with high dex seems to have low attack ..but i think its still better than being slow..

so i think you got most of the parts ...i would build my character mainly on high dexterity first , defence on second and attack on third ...i dont think its weird to put attack on low ..

Based on my preference for being a healer in other games and a support/poison character in the games that don't have a healer....

I know I'd either go for a fighting style that let me increase my party's effectiveness while poisoning or inhibiting our enemies, or a fighting style that let me do something closer to healing people (perhaps something that let me throw a special kind of health potion at the ground and it affects those within range to heal them).

As for a weapon, I would undoubtedly choose a one-handed Chinese saber.

Armor is a more difficult choice, since I typically play a cloth-character, but leather seems to be a smarter choice.

Side note: it'd be interesting to see the viability of whip weapons a la Youko Kurama or (Soul Calibur) Ivy.

from the structure of the game base on what i've seen. its basically a fancier version of runescape but much better. you can interchange weopons. but you stick with what your used to.

i would love a skill that sends all my weopons out onto the field so i can go mifune style.

I would say Dante, but having his other weapons in SAO to make stylish combos would brake the core or whats going on. So i would say a Vergil type, simple as in a single sword with speed and power.

Umm, probably a war hammer, or battleaxe. Or greatsword. Two-Handed weapons in other words.

And heavy armor!

Gate of Babylon like Gilgamesh from Fate Zero.
Sit in the back and throw swords. Fun. Safe. No risk. Condom unnecessary.
