    whirlwind is much weaker

    Whirlwind is now 600% at level 10, used to be 900%.

    It's been changed to a passive attack, you can do your normal attacks and cast other abilities, while Whirlwind is active. So I suppose the lowered damage is to compensate for this...

      I love this fact. I hated that it put you into a spell lock.

    You need only to have the sweet sweet bonus that creates the lil tornadoes my friend. Whirlwind has become my very best friend since then, and I couldn't bring myself to use it before (even though I was so excited when the spell first came out, then when I first used it I found the spell lock it puts you into..can't even drink a potion..and was devastated (pun intended) but it's a beast of a spell now with Fury

      Now if only they'd fix the Axe set. It's garbage because of one mechanic.. it only effects your target... Not the swarm of enemies around you while you're spinning.. Just one target..

      I loved it for dragging around mobs at lightning speed farming XP. Now, with alacrity cut in half, and battle rage proc stuck at 7, I need to relearn how to farm efficiently. Your point re: the axe is interesting. I always wondered why that didn't work as expected.

      Oh ok, so they fixed BR... That's why you slowed down huh. That kinda sucks, but it was a bug anyway. I actually haven't used anything but ItZ and charge with my whirlwind with this new stuff. I'm farming faster than ever before. With this Fury set, warriors are actually in the class of farmers now, legitimately.

    Might be just me, but it seems that WW now does some damage to Kara, when it used to be utterly useless against her. It's still the weakest attack against her, but it does damage, and when using the Belt of the Triad, it's actually kinda fun.

      As Nhat mentioned above you can now perform your basic attacks during whirlwind. Before this was possible it was most likely that using it against a single target actually reduced you damage but now it is additional.

        I'm aware of that, but I have cast whirlwind on Kara (TL 80) and let it run for a second or two without doing anything else. I see it causing damage to her, which I didn't before this update. Kara used to seem utterly impervious to whirlwind.

          I've been using Whirlwind for trials in nearly all my runs, and it definitely do damage to Kara - I use it to help build up bleed stacks for Shockwave... The potential problem sometimes is ensuring that you're close enough to her to actually hit her with it, since she doesn't get pull in.

        Since there's no leaderboards to look at, what is everyone using as far as gear/abilities with the new fury set? I'm running TL 90-95 in 2 mins with 4/6 fury, 2/6 warlord, vamp swords, and shockwave, charge, and WW. Does anyone have better ideas?

            When I first started reading this forum, your enthusiasm for whirlwind inspired me to try it and I knew you would love the new Fury gear!

          Anyway Whirlwind is "a must" for my Old shield warrior (because of Low end PC)
