    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.

    What's cheaper, two Shaels, or two 15% IAS jewels?
