20 WW
20 BO
20 mastery
20 shout

The rest in IS/inc. speed/berserk.

One point in conc. is enough (+skills, synergies)

^ I never understood what a "synergie" is? Can you help me out?
A synergy is something that works in tandem with something else. In the 1.10 patch, skills were given synergetic bonuses when you have invested in a skill listed in its description. For example, Concentration gains +10% damage for each point you've invested in Battle Orders, +5% damagel for each point you've invested in Bash, and 1% damage is converted to magical for each point you spend in berserk. These bonuses only count actual points invested, and not the points gained form +skill items.

I have decided to add skills points into the following for WW/Conc Barb

(using IK sets for PvM)

20 Mace Mastery
20 BattleOrders
20 Shout
20 Whirlwind
1 Increased Speed
1 Iron Skin
1 Natural Resist
1 Battle Command
1 Berserk
Rest Concentrate

If I am not wrong, Increased Speed, Iron Skin and Natural Resists are passive skills which is 1 point wonders. Is the skills distribution ok?

There is no reason to pump two non-synergetic combat skills; as it stands, you'll find you're not using conc too much with your whirler, and when you are, one point will be more than enough (even with one point and max BO, it does more damage than whirlwind). As a result, it's more effective to pump a passive (namely ironskin) instead, as it will be more useful to you in general.

Otherwise, you're fine.

so many people are making IK barbs and Conc barbs, im wondering if should give it a try.

Anyone got some input on how effective conc barbs are in duels?

Another one point wonder is battle cry, with +skills any affected monster will do around 35% less damage, and have less than half normal def. Plus it works on ANY monster, you can even use battle cry on diablo clone! Though I'm guessing that the damage reduction is physical only, but I'm only guessing. And it's pre-requisite skill (taunt) is no slouch either....
