Use 1H Sword for breaking. Hard Hit and Spiral Air are the breaking skills as they flinch. Basically as long as you max these 2 you will be pretty good at breaking lol. Another skill to pick up maybe is Shield Bash, this however has a bigger skill point investment as you have to get a prerequisite skill to 5 in the Shield tree. This is up to you.
While on the subject of Shields, you really more so want to figure out what you want to do outside of breaking. Tank or DPS. This will effect what stats/skills you will max outside of the two main breaking skills.
Tanks will add VIT to some degree and get Heavy Armor Mastery and some skills from the Knight Tree.
DPS will not add VIT and will ignore Heavy Armor Mastery and the Knight Tree and instead just max the majority of the Sword tree.
