the bard npc should sell packs that have armor sets... if not check the auction house or buy rep gear. look for npc's in the area that your leveling in for a big medal symbol, the rep gear is pretty decent, only thing youd have to worry about are boots and shirts.
as for weapon, it depends on what has the best stat bonus for you at the moment, you can use 1h mace, 1h ax, 1h sword and even a dagger (dont use dagger, theyre crappy dps) and foro ffhand you want lamps orbs or things like that. offhands give you the off stats that your not suposed to activly focus on with stat points, things like nedurance and stamina
