I'd go for the dagger to increase the proc rate of the nados. I think it would make fury gen a bit smoother, but see what everyone else says.

Dagger is best as far as I know. Tornadoes damage is based on mainhand. So offhand dps doesn't matter (only for the sheet). So ideal offhand is one with high aps (for fury and Loh), strength, high crit and socket. This is a lest what I have been told from Kripparian who beat diablo on hardcore as worldfirst and does nothing but gaming all day.

But some guys think otherwise. Check this guys thread out:

He thinks that "true damage" is proc rate of fury times offhand and mainhand. I'm confused! Hope he doens't start saying that dps is actually offhand damage times how many hats you can juggle with on one foot.

For the current patch (1.04) you'll want what's known as a stat stick. Essentially, offhand weapon DPS doesn't matter so much, so finding as many key stats as possible is the best option to go for; strength, vitality, LOH/LS, crit damage, attack speed, socket.

In 1.05 the game will change if you're a budget WW barb. From the looks of your profile you're somewhere in the mid-high mid range in terms of gear, so you should be okay. Just focus on grabbing anything that will boost your key stats but don't worry about the DPS. As has been said before, most people tend to look for a dagger as the faster attack speed adds tremendously to your overall damage.

Hope that helps!

Has the importance of having a highish dps offhand increased since 1.05? Just wondering if people are doing more damage from ww than they were in 1.04. There seems to be fewer barbs with stat sticks now.. are they still the way to go?
