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
