Quote from Shinna1989No. Its not related to ehp. Basicly:Quote from zvixMost people use spears for that reason, highest dps with the lowest attackspeed. Faster weapons requires less ehp so long you hit hard enough :).
Rich = Realy good EF = Spear as offhand to max. out the hota dmg and you will need more ias from gear to reach certain sprint/ww breakpoints
Cant afford a gg ef = Rare Mainhand and EF as offhand = less ias on gear to maintain breakpoints.
Your argumentation is wrong. Only for a spear it would be important to use it as MH if you want to decrease the IAS needed for breakpoints (using Weapon Mastery ofc) compared to a EF/Spear combo, every other weapon would decrease the IAS needed regardless of the weapon slot you put them in.
Also as a barb spears arent that good if you want to be optimal. Because you want the EF in your OH so your tornados doesnt trigger the fear effect. But because of Weapon Mastery you will always want a Mace or Axt in your MH. So for Hota Mace/EF is the best combination. If you only want max dmg you can go EF/Spear but it wouldnt be optimal.
