The rng gods must of wanted me to complete the set - had 2 parts drop within 24 hours ...

I absolutely love the nice increase to fury - 30 fury - 10 from each weapon and 10 from the set. I agree the spinning thing is errr subpar. I still do decent damage thou.

Not sure Ill keep using it thou - my toughness drops a bit compared to my old set.

Yeah, I used them for a while; the lack of crit is indeed very disappointing.

Your post here seems to imply there are other class specific procs that can't crit? What are they? Curious as I only play barb.

There's a comment on the game guide page that says, that it doesn't crit, but the damage of the proc includes crit-dmg, however that's supposed to work. Perhaps it adds a flat dmg% for your crit-chance and dmg?
For example:
Set bonus is 325%, if you have 300% crit-dmg and 33% crit, the proc is at 425% (or 650%) dmg? Not sure, if that's what he meant and as I said before: I don't know if it's true.

I just tested it. The damage per tick increases when you have more crit stats, even though it cannot crit. Based on this, it must be working as intended, otherwise the crit would double dip.

Test: no dps passives. Paragon points on the tab for attack speed / crit chance / crit damage all set to 0.

Damage on zombies: consistent 1185217 damage every tick.

Put paragon points into +50% crit damage, +2.6% crit chance.

Damage on zombies: consistent 1318856 damage per tick.

Repeatable many times, always same numbers.

My original suspicion was correct, its damage scales with crit stats even if it cannot crit.
