Also, IK boots would be an immediate upgrade. Even if you get the cheapest pair out there for like 2M. You could also pick up a cheap pair of IK gloves which would give you the resist bonus, and some other upgrades.
If you really want to go weapon throw, you'll need a little bit of -WT fury cost like on a soj or mighty belt (maybe IK?) and also you'll want to get a 300th spear with high +WT damage and a socket

what's your budget... how much are you willing to spend to make this work... on US gold is down to 29-32 cents per million.... consider dumping 8 bucks into the rmah to buy some gold and skip out on lunch for a couple days good to lose some weight and to gear your barb... lol
i personally spent 29 million to buy the items i needed for the spec to work decent at low.mp... with my gear . maras ammy, skull grasp, and ik belt plus the spear... also got as much cheap legendary attack speed increase gear as i could afford and went to town with it.... its definetely doable for around 50 million or less(rmah its cheap to buy gold)... when i get home i'll see ur gear and offer more help

For starters you'll need to replace quite a bit of your gear... but don't fret, its easily obtainable... imo you've gotta focus on lots of attack speed, and crit. Then crit dmg to follow.
I'll just list some stuff on here for you and you can then build a budget based on what you'd like to do. My barb WT builds off attack speed and crit, with crit dmg where i can get it when i can get it... based off budget tho, i've opted to slack some on the crit damage portions.
Helm: Mempo of Twilight or andariels with crit and attack speed... socket is a bonus
Neck: Mara's amulet with high strength if possible(or vit) and -4 or 5 to weapon throw
Rings: Focus on looking for HIGH attack speed bonus and critical hit chance, then throw in average dmg and strength as your budget allows. I've got like 7-9 % as and 3-5 crit on my rings + average dmg and strength and it seems to work well. This is for my ww build, but for weap throw build you'll need a skull grasp ring or a stone of jordan(or both) with - to weapon throw...
the most important thing to remember is that you need to make weapon throw free to use. so -10 fury is your goal... this can be achieved thru amulet rings and belt... focus on attack speed when you can makes the dmg really fly
Bracers: Highest strength you can find and 9 as... move speed is a bonus. The crit ones are super expensive so no real point to hunt for one unless you have tons of money
Pants: Inna's temperance for move speed, crit, and attack speed, OR focus on defensive stats as you'll be losing some on the attack speed gears, either way, come see me if you're in the US i've got some spare pants that are definite upgrades that are pretty cheap we can work something out
Belt: It'd be great to find a witching hour with -weapon throw but if you cant afford that Immortal Kings belts aren't that bad on cost and have all the appropriate stats, find one within your budget with -3 to -5 weap throw (higher the better so you need less on rings/neck)
Weapons: Main Hand: Axe, Increased attack speed, High dmg, socket, life steal.... no other stats, as high a dmg as you can afford with life steal and a socket. If you add str and crit dmg your price sky rockets... you want the increased crit from axe, and high dmg for weapon throw(uses main hand dmg if i remember correctly)
Offhand: The three hundredth spear with socket, high weapon dmg if possible and 45 + to each weapon throw and ancient spear(tho you really want highest dmg socket and weapon throw as possible)
Gloves: You really need high crit high attack speed strength and whatever else but those 3 are priority for this slot.... attack speed is gonnna make a huge diffference, trifecta + str would be nice, when budget allows if all else fails, Immortal kings are cheap enough nowaday, and you can get the belt too to get the bonus
If you go with inna's and lacunis for movement speed and Increased attack speed bonuses, you should ditch the boots you wear now and get a pair of ice climbers*(this is long term, as they are expensive as a 3 set sometimes )
Hopefully this will help you locate and sort out the things you need .... remember you only really NEED to face roll on mp1... get into a group with a good wizard once you get your strength up there/damage higher and farm keys then off of mp5 or something with that guy while you dps Mp1 is pretty much farmable by anyone with a small budget... weapon throw would be easy to make it work depending on your absolute highest budget
! oh, also, you're going to want to use either scoundrel with windforce and max attack speed/vitality/all resist gear as possible, or an enchantress with defensive stats + a maximus for a weapon... that demon tanks pretty damn well and works great with this spec.... altho the windforce scoundrel with max attack speed, and "immobilize/freeze/stun on hit" gear with his multishot works wonders too... keeps enemies at bay while you lumberjack chuck shit to death good luck bro

my barbs in ww gear atm, farming keys in mp5... when i get home will toss on my wt gear for you, add me when i get on we can chat.
as for my gear, its been long time farming and buying golds... my barb pretty expensive so far and still 90 k unbuffed soooo/shrugs. take what u will from it.
first things to get would be the three hundreth spear, belt and ring/neck with -wep throw to -10 so its free, attackspeed+crit hat, ring with crit and max attack speed + str and average dmg if u can get one cheap.... get a mace / axe with life steal and socket as high dmg as u can for main hand and spear in offhand...
thats where i'd start... in that order. you can get 30 million gold for about 10 bucks right now is cheap dont pussy out!

wep throw barbs at the highest levels of gear do well.... its not for budget/lowcost levels unfortunately... hell even my 100 mill plus in gear cant handle mp5 as weapon throw.... /shrugs maybe i need more armor and resists to survive more.... weapon throw spec is just tooo stand and shoot then. die cuz u weren't moving like with ww... lol
