Diablo® III

dual wielding question

When using the weapons master passive, do you receive both benefits of two different weapons, or just your main hand?

Example:

Will wielding an axe and a mighty weapon give me 10% crit chance and 3 fury on hit when using whirlwind?

Also, any tips to raise my DPS up?

Read the skill tooltip a little bit closer ;-)

Gain a bonus based on the weapon type of your MAIN HAND weapon:
Swords/Daggers: 15% increased damage
Maces/Axes: 10% Critical Hit Chance
Polearms/Spears: 10% attack speed
Mighty Weapons: 3 Fury per hit

Also your MH should be your highest dps wep and OH should be the fastest wep. Consider grabbing a high dps mace and EF OH if you can afford it. Also more crit and cdmg.

Wonderful, thank you so much for the help. Just got into barbarian and I'm still figuring out a lot of things (like reading closely) =P

I'm wondering this myself. If you can't afford an Echoing Fury, what would you look for? IAS, CD, socket? Dagger?

Wouldn't I ideally want axes instead of maces, since they attack faster?

Fast OHs are to hit higher aps breakpoints so your sprint nados tick faster. If you dont use an EF, you should get a dagger or an IAS sword with 1.5aps+ The mathematics of why are based on feasible aps breakpoints with as few IAS slots.
