From a gearing perspective, you went with a lot of 8% IAS boosts. In general, for having a mace main and EF offhand, I would suggest 9/9/8/8 (in the long run). Bright side is, you have enough IAS (although inefficiently stacked) to run a mace main hand and EF off hand.
For you if you get a mace main hand with 600-1200 avg, CD, socket, and str your tdps vs elites will jump.
The average damage on that EF is just too bad to use as a main hand. The problem you have however is the annoying stat stick dagger. Barbs who choose to use offhand daggers have the most annoying DPS wall when trying to hit higher levels. The problem with a stat stick is the same reason why people say it is so good: Impossible to replace because the stats are so good.
Personally I would sell the EF and get another .24 APS one with LS/Socket (if you can afford) or get one with LS/CD with high CD and place it in your offhand. Try to aim for 2.5% lifesteal or higher to make long-term gearing easier. If you an manage that, then you have to get extra CD on your main hand mace when you buy it. The trick is to make sure it is high average black damage (no elemental).
One glaring hole I see in your set as well is that you don't have any pieces to complete your IK set bonus. An IK without a set bonus might easily be replaced with a crafted vit chest (untested but a theory). I just think the IK is BiS only when accompanied by another piece. I think you might be just a little shy on AR for higher MP, but that might be able to be mitigated by good gameplay (which is impossible to gauge).
Those lacuni's bother me...but we can save those for another time. I think all lacuni's should have either an EHP buff or some kind of strength modifier (even at the expense of a little crit). Those ultimately will be your weakest piece when you sure up your other gear.
I will accept your friend request when I get home. :)
