    dunno, but id have some in elap or leap attack, so if you WW into a middle of a pack you can get out quickly.

    Leap Attack is a pre-req for WW anyway, so that's covered. :)

    I'd just go with one in Ironskin for a spear barb. Even with a Defiance merc, you're going to get hit a ton without a shield, so you might as well not even think of defense rating. I think Battle Cry might work better for this build than Ironskin. If you're going to get hit anyway, you might as well make the hits hurt less. Or you could put those points into Shout instead, since the added defense, while of not much use to you, will help your merc a bit.

    definitely shout. The defense for reasons listed above. It's better than Iron skin because a point in each gives the same percent increase in defense, shout adds time to BO, helps the merc, and makes beserk an even better one point wonder.

    The term "classic whirler" is still used amongst LOD players, so you can see how we misread you on that, I hope. :) Playing D2C, you should be golden with the build you described.
