Dual shael the maul. ONLY weapon speed matters when whirling.

Ogre Maul base weapon speed is 10.

Two handed whirl breakpoints are IIRC: -10, -30, -60.

To reach the last whirlwind breakpoint of -60 for the maximum number of hits per whirl you must have an astonishing 70% IAS on the weapon itself. No other IAS matters.

The IK Maul comes with 40% ias and two sockets. These two sockets must provide 30% more IAS.

Your options therefore are:

Dual shael rune
Shael rune + something/15% IAS jewel
dual something/15% IAS jewel

I recommend dual shael. It's the cheapest option.
