Help and advice needed

Hey there,
I just baught the game and startet a Soldier. Curently playing with 1h/shield and skilled most of my points in tanky passives and the autoattackprocs.

So my questions are:

  1. Is 1h/Shield viable or in this case…is a full-tank/support-tank viable?
    2.If yes. What would you recommend skilling? Which class should i pick as secondary?
  2. If not, What else would you recommend?
