i'm not a barb, but the same thing applies for a monk when dual wielding. you have a 1,45 attack speed ef, which must mean it has rolled +0.25 attacks per second. (mace default is 1.2 att/sec + 0.25 = 1.45 att/sec)
the +0.25 attacks of an echoing fury also get applied 1:1 to your other (offhand-)weapon. (i'll refer to it as "offhand" from here on, it actually doesn't matter on which hand the ef is equipped)
now if you use an 1.20 attacks offhand-weapon (a spear, or a mace), the +0.25 of your echoing fury are added to the 1.2 attacks resulting in - yes - 1.45 attacks/sec. with both weapons being equally fast at 1.45 attacks, it makes sense that it shows you the same 2.45 attacks per second. if you use a 1.3 att/sec weapon it's 1.45 for your echoing fury and 1.55 for the other one. therefore the numbers are different. similarly with higher attack speed weapons.
it's one of the reasons why it's recommended to use a slow offhand weapon combined with echoing fury. the +0.25 (or +0.24 / +0.23, depends on your roll on the ef) have a higher impact on the resulting overall speed of your and therefor result in overall higher damage gain.

i just signed up to these forums to provide you with another vote. i started to notice it ever since i switched to FoT/Quickening instead of Thunderclap for party play. now I'm forced to "clean" my inventory repeatedly from trash because around 30% of my inventory space is taken by unintentional pickups!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
