    20 Sword Mas
    20 BO
    20 WW
    1 Iron Skin
    1 Increased Speed
    1 Natural Resist
    1 Increased Stamina
    1 Berserk
    1 to all prereq.

    Shout.
    Concentrate'll work fine as a 1 point wonder if you're going WW.
    After that, Iron Skin is the usual route.

    Max shout, since it will boost you and the merc's defense, add 200% to your berserk damage, and boost your BComm and BO durations. Drop one point into Battle Command so you can cast it before all your other warcries, and put the rest into ironskin. That's the typical build, and it's much more stable and balanced than any of the other whirl designs. Pumping two weapon skills that don't synergize each other is pointless, since you'll more often than not only be using one of them, and conc already does more damage than whirlwind with just one point in it and max BO.

    edit: spud posted while I was typing, heh heh. You get the idea though.

    Yep one point to concentrate is plenty, my polearm ww barb does more damage with level 7 concentrate (plus 5 skills and 2 base) then 25 ww (plus 5 to skills and 20 base) using crescent moon ogre axe with the maxed polearm mastery.
