Any pointers on what should I train in the AA tree? 1h&shield pve
Stall the Advance
That depends abit on the fight, The two Constitution AA is really good, so are the Chromatic and Elusive nature.
If you're planning to maintank/solotank Hardmodes Stall the advance is very helpfull in the start before you get good gear.

For continuous high aggro generation, counterweight combo.
Best choice for bosses where you have a fast tank rotation.
I tank mostly with pole as not doing high tier raids but think guard destroyer is not only debuff but also boost hate from combos. May be then shorter cd should be nice to have.
counter weight and the one which grants you new guard and cs combo.
what you do is use the pole arm combo which replaces guard. and just as it is finishing you switch to S/B you will get the 10% armor buff and the ability. good for tanking the harder hitting bosses. you can also do it with guard but it is alot harder and timing needs to be right.
pardon me for not knowing the combos its been a while since i played
And I am not convinced that Guard Destroyer buffs the hate from CW pole version either. At least in my experience it makes no noticeable difference - and since switching weapons removes the armour buff it's IMO not worth doing this poor debuff (short duration, long CD, most other classes debuff better than that).

I think guard destroyer boost hate only from shield and sword combos also from from sword cw combo. But that was tip for me from t4 raiding guard. But I can not say how good it work because as I say before most of time I use pole for tanking and not use destroyer combo.
guard destroyer doesn't buff counterweight pole but does buff counterweight s/b
