Hey mate thx for the answer I'm just gonna comment on each of your advices, my view on it and some follow-up questions. There are some choices I made but getting a perspective from someon else is always nice
Get a faster offhand, 1.4+ APS.
// I'm not familiar with the benefits of the increased attack speed, but afaik the attack speed has be really high in order to get an extra tornado from sprint that it's pretty much not worth going for(for another spec this might be really beneficial I'm not familiar with other dps barb specs).
You could consider to drop a bit of crit% to gain more crit dmg, i like the 1 to 10 ratio. 1 crit % to 10 crit dmg %, so, maybe drop to 40-45% crit but bump crit dmg up to 400-450%.
// Dmgwise this might be better indeed, my choice to go really high crit chance is because I don't want to fury starve when in my ww spec. I'm gonna check out how much dropping a few % would hurt to my fury generation, but I think there's some room for improvement here.
You could obtain that with a different amulet or some different rings. Maybe look for rings med IAS and crit dmg %, they tend to go for really cheap money atm - i snacked some really good deals the last few days.
// Hm yes I've been thinking about attack speed and critdmg, I guess I should check out some theory on it to see what amounts I need to rise above the current strength values on them.
12% MS on boots is very very very strong for a WW barb, so look in to that, perhaps a pair of Sage's Seekers with high roll str/vit, and if you're willing to spend a little extra, go for a double roll str/vit (they'll be in the range from 130/130+)
// Ye I can see how movement speed could help alot, ill go check AH for that if I can find something good
@res on belt/chest/helm/bracer seems a little on the low end - i know, it can be really expensive to upgrade that, and if you dont have real problems, dont put it up as a high priority,
// I know.. but as you said, going up 15 resist to all per item is gonna cost me like 20 million atleast, and as you also said resistances isn't rly my issue atm. Ofc this is on my long term to-do list ^^
As said, thanks for your perspective

Hey there,Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I have had some issues finding more than minor upgrades for my current gearset between a pricerange of 5-10 mil(with the exception of weapons, I can go higher) for my whirlwind barb
Maybe someone finds a piece that could easily be replaced(by i.e. saying life% instead of vit or critdmg instead of str or changing some vit out to gain a big upgrade)or some stats could be rebalanced on some items, any help is appreciated.
Here's screenshots with my current gear and buffedstats(including warcry/impunity):
