    Blocking and Whirlwind

    I recall reading somewhere that when you whirl, your defense is 0. Is that correct?

    Second, are you able to block while whirling? If so, do you maintain the full %, or is it cut to 33%, like when you run?

    Thanks, babas

    Blocking and defense are both in full effect with WW.

    Thanks man. I have a hardcore barbarian that I was going to make Frenzy, but I'm starting to wonder if I'll be alright in hell mode without a shield.

    Do you have any thoughts? Would sword 'n' board whirlwind be a better way to go?
