Depends on how you want to play.
Affliction -> Penetration is quite popular with passives like Bloodsport, Fatal Flourish, Iron Maiden, Twist the Knife, 12 Gouge, Donor, etc.
Also popular is Elementalism's Blaze/Aidelon spam combo. You could pair that with Blades' Affliction/Pen combo. Just be wary of mobs that do nasty things when you Afflict them.
Blade/Blood has alot of synergies. I don't play Blood so I'll leave that for someone else who does.
There's also alot of Blade/Assault Rifle for those focusing on Strike attacks and leeching self-heals.
As for stats, those will come. As you quest just focus on talisman roles (tank, dps, heal). Once you get up in QLs you can focus on stats that will support your build.
I will say though, that you should put Hit Rating on both your weapons for consistancy since the game only uses the stats on a weapon while it's in use, and ignores the stats on your "sheathed" weapon.
