    Knockback With Whirlwind

    Does anyone use knockback with whirlwind, if so does it distract from tri-whiring or support it?

    Edit: The reason i ask is because i'd like to swap out my draculs, i'm always casting life tap with widow and people get pissed because of that therefore i was thinking of changing to ias/kb/str/cb gloves (if those even exist lol) since kb with widow is quite nice.

    Yes, knockback works with Whirlwind. No, it is not good- it will knock enemies AWAY from you, out of your weapon range, which leaves you attacking no one. Also, ias/kb/str/cb gloves do not exist. KB only exists in glove-form on Cleg's gloves (kb, 25% slows target) or Crafted Hit Power Gloves (kb, random mods). CB only exists in glove form on Steelrend, Venom Grip, or Crafted Blood gloves (none of which can get kb). You'd have to choose either one mod, or the other.

    You could get kb/ias/str gloves, and you could get cb/ias/str gloves, though.

    I guess cb over kb then since cb has some effect in pvp or what other gloves would be recommended to sub in for draculs?

    You can try rends for CB and ED. Souldrainer can cast weaken but that won't work too much unless you are facing serious BvB or B Vs Melee (reduce enemy damage by 33% !).

    IAS of course will not work with WW but might help you with the widow.

    I'm bvc and i use forti vs hammers, there is no way i can equip rends. Yeah if i had 20 ias on gloves it would be pretty good since i hit the 52 ias bp (15ias/15resi jool in arreats, highlords).

    But if you take draculs off, you will lose that OW.

    if you're going pvp and want draculs for pubbies or duels where you can life tap and other gloves in case you cant have life tap best option i would say is crafted blood gloves

    Like or hate 'em then?
    I haven't played anything but pub duells since 1.09
    There's nothing as fun as public duells IMHO, but I havent played any league so far, so I may be wrong :)
    Don't waste dracs, they're just too usefull. CB doesn't do a squat in PvP, so don't bother - LT doesn't trigger with WW.
    If someone cries about LT in pubs (a hammer for example) just ask him if he would stop desynching.
    If he say OK, then use other gloves, if he starts "calling you names" instead, simply squelch him.
    DS+OW - that's your best bet.
    I know my words aren't anything new, but I've played my barbarian ever since 1.10 came out, and my advice is based on my own experience.

    Lol man i know what you mean but in priv 1v1s people cry a lot when i cast life tap therefore i would like to avoid that by using something else. cb isn't that useless imo, still plays a useful enough role to be used.
