    Stupid Whirlwind Question

    I know this is a really stupid question, but does WW attack ALL targets in range every 4 frames (assuming a 4 FPS attack), or ONE target which is in range every 4 frames?

    One target which is in range every 4 frames.

    Also, I've heard that if you dual wield only one weapon is used at the first check, then both are checked at frame 8, 12, etc. Probably not on the same target but tbh I have no idea.

    I have another stupid question, so I'll re-use this thread :p

    Does FR/W effect the speed at which you move when whirling? Should I try and make sure I have as little FR/W as possible so as to maximise the amount of time (and therefore amount of hits) I get for each whirl?

    An extreme example is in baal's throne when/if you get frozen AND decrepified. You ww, hang in range, and score xxx more hits since you leave the range of the monsters very slowly.

    This is more of a novelty to me personally. Slow mobility makes moving through the game painfully boring and slower to move though areas. 1pt in inc speed is fine even with frw booties. imho.

    Some pvp barbs put no points into increase speed precisely to keep whirls longer in time.

    But that's really a pvp thing. In all pvm situations, not having that 1 pt speed is a total bore. A game is about having fun, not behaving like a lawn-mower :)
