I propose a new passive, for when the first live update comes along:
Pulp Smashing. The savage barbarian forgoes the use of his weapons, instead relying on his fists. With modifiers a bit like -10% damage, +5% attack speed, +10% running speed, where you trade raw damage for speed and mobility. It would essentially transform your weapons into stat sticks.
Slow two handers would look more Hulk-ish, while dual wielding would probably look more E. Honda-ish.
But, of course, this is just some morning day-dreaming ;P
I don't know if anybody else noticed, but the original concept art for the "gear progression" of the barbarian showed the barbarian sporting a fist weapon in one of his hands and an axe in the other if I remember correctly. Kind of a shame that fist weapons are strictly locked down to the monks.
As a matter of fact here is a link to the original concept art.

^I think that's part of his armor or glove or gauntlet or whatever. Some armors will currently display spikes sprouting from your arm, but you can't use them to attack.
Dual-wielding wands would be pretty hilarious, though. If barbs can wear wands.
