1) The Three Hundredth Spear + Socket is desirable
2) Belt with -5 Fury Cost for Weapon Throw + 3.00 Lifesteal is desirable
3) The Passives Ruthless, No Escape & Bloodthrist
4) It would also be desirable for your crit to be around 32% and crit hit damge 200% and above.
Strengths of the Bulid
*Doing Similar or more damage than a barb with dualwielding or using a 2hander but having the survivability of a tank spec. It is equally as fast due to the movement speed on weapon and aoe experience gain from Weapon Throw rune Dread Bomb.
* Its cheap to gear up and the gear / playstyle is probably useful when pvp comes out.
How does it work
Basically it shares the same concept as WOW warrior class when you execute mobs.Bash with instigation generates 12 per hit, you throw weapon for 5 fury. you can also gain fury from War Cry + Ancient Spear
How do you heal
Life steal due to huge aoe damage from Dread Bomb + weapons skill damage bonus
Ancient Spear - Dread Spear rune heals for 60% dmg + Passive No Escape resets cooldown if crits.

and killing elites looks SOO slow, but another alternative to revenge tank build is always welcome )
The damage output of corpse throw is dependent of how much fury you have, hence the -5 fury aids the dps ... my damage is only 45k unbuffed hence it may appear slow to u.

I believe that Corpse Throw shouldn't be an ability that a build is focused around but more of an ability that fits into a build that always generates tonnes of excess rage. Like instead of having Bash that generates more rage to fuel Corpse Throw you could have Frenzy/Maniac or Bash/Punish with Rend/BloodLust and when your Rend is up and ticking but you still have a truck load of excess rage you then pop your Corpse Throw + its then hitting for the 20% extra dmg from Maniac or 24% extra from Punish.

His spec was something like : https://us.battle.ne...QRkP!YZf!acZYZc
Basically, he could easily just keep throwing weapons due to the super high rage generation he had. Also he kept the Overpower buff up at all times.
Weapon master = 10% crit
Overpower = 10% crit
Battle rage = 3% crit
Ruthless = 5% crit
With gear, you can reach up to +35-39.5% crit and including a base 5% crit rate, you can reach up to 72.5% crit rate fully buffed. The key is to reach high enough attack speed to keep your overpower buff up as much as possible to generate even more rage and damage.
