    PvP WW barb, fhr or ias?

    For a whirlwing barb, which is better route to go: faster hit recovery or ias? I was thinking about either shaeling my armor and helm, or putting a 15ias jewel in them. So which is better to have? And also, is shael or um better in stormshield?

    Ias only affects WW if it's in the weapon and there are fixed breakpoints, unfortunatly I don't know them:lol:

    Actually, both of those is kinda pointless for a ww barb, since IAS only counts on the weapon and fhr is pointless since you can't get interrupted. You're better off with ed/str jewels, as they will raise your whirl damage, which is one of the problems inherent with the skill.

    edit: in respones to meme, ias bps for whirl are:

    -10 and -35 for all 1h weapons and all swords
    -30, -60 for all 2h weapons other than swords.

    Yeah, -10, but no one ever really mentions it very often, as you're more concerned with the other two.

    edit: and Rick beat me to it, lol
