I jusst recently came back to game, can do MP5, things to note are that i want to be whirlwind and everyone tells me i should build toward using a 2hander but if there's a way to stick with dual wield i'd prefer that for looks. I don't know what kind of upgrades i should do, dont want to up my damage if it causes me to die a lot.
WARNING: My opinion only, other people may disagree.
You're gear is going to need quite the overhaul. A few things to note:
1) You'll need to switch from Life On Hit to Life Steal. LOH stops becoming viable in higher MPs. Once your DPS starts moving up, LS becomes a much better source.
2) You need the right stats in the right slots. Jewelry needs to stack DPS and not EHP. You're relying on your rings and amulet for a bunch of AR and Life. You need to get this elsewhere and stack CC/CD/IAS/Str/Avg Dmg in these slots.
3) Weapons: Get your Str on other gear; Str on weapons is a nice bonus, but not a main source. You're getting 487 Str from your weapons, which is nearly 1/4 of your total Str. You can get this Str on gear while you focus on better Avg Dmg from your weapons.
My gear recommendations:
Shoulders - Good for now, you'll replace these with crafted shoulders once the rest of your gear is taken care of.
Helm - You have a massive weakness to Fire with your helm. I'd switch to an IK helm with either Vit or AR as the random roll for more EHP. Stay away from a Mempo unless you can afford a Crit one. We need to build up your CC%.
Amulet - Craft a Str amulet. Look for CC/CD/IAS/Avg Dmg. Any EHP stats (Vit, life%, AR) are just bonus stats here and not the main focus.
Chest - You have a very poorly rolled IK chest. Look for a better one with at least 150 Str and 200 Vit. A little more armor wouldn't hurt, either.
Gloves - Fine for now, you'll be crafting new ones later.
Belt - This should be your first upgrade. Get an IK belt with 3% Life Steal. You may lose a bit of Str and Vit, but the LS is a must and you'll gain a bit of AR plus some more Fury.
Bracer - Fine for now, although the 4.5% CC is kinda hurting. You should be able to find 6% CC rare bracers for cheap; most people go with Lacunis or crafted, so nice rares don't cost too much. You might fine a really nice deal for a 6% CC rare bracer.
Rings - You need to stack CC/IAS/CD/Avg Dmg/Str here, in that order. You need enough CC% to keep your damage going.
Pants - I like BTs for the EHP, and it's good that you got AR on them, but too bad the other roll was Dex. I'd stick with these for now. The +life and LOH is nice.
Boots - IK boots are good; you should be able to find some with an extra Str and/or Vit roll instead of Int for fairly cheap.
Weapons - The go-to offhand for spinning barbs is an Echoing Fury. Make sure you get one with decent +APS, low Fear, and an OS. Str, LS, and CD rolls add quite a bit to the cost. For mainhand you'll want either an Axe or Mace to get the +10% CC from the Weapon Master passive. Must have an OS. LS and Str are bonuses.
Swap Superstition and Tough as Nails out for Weapons Master and Bloodthirst (unless your weapons give you enough LS - if that's the case, go with Brawler).
