HotA question about DW

Rocking a Skorn for quite sometime but i want to switch up still using HotA build. But needing advice on switching from Skorn to a DW HotA. Any advice on what i should be trying to grab on weaps and specific type of weaps would be awesome also. I know that i wana try to go for Mace (EF maybe) but kind of in the dark what else to get.

Heres the link to my actual used barb. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Basstia-1339/hero/30414677

Lul need ta delete my female barb that i never use now

For DW HOTA/Rend builds:

Mainhand should be a high damage range weapon (mace or axe) with a fast offhand, just like a WWDT setup. The reason is because HOTA smashes based on your weapon damage, and your attacks-per-second determines how fast you smash. With Rend, your IAS and attacks per second is completely irrelevant and only your weapon damage, CC, CD and STR effect Rend's damage. Therefore, your mainhand should focus on high damage range, OS for crit dmg emerald, CD and STR.

This can be supported by grabbing jewelry that has high damage modifiers; for Rend, this is almost a must have.
