    I think so too, but those aren't points in favor of WW, merely mitigating factors that make two advantages of Frenzy less pronounced. The attack rate, which the post I was quoting didn't mention, but which you did mention, is an advantage of Whirlwind.

    Guys, my point was that with a decked titan build a ww barb would have around 2000 ED. While Frenzy around 2500. Meanwhile frenzy would hit enemies at 5 FPA while a dual wielding WW would hit effectively at 2-3 fpa depending on whirl length. so at the high end of gear spectrum the ww outperforms frenzy.

    I'm repeating myself, but WW has reliability issues. If I thought it actually outperformed Frenzy in all areas of the game, I'd use it over Frenzy all the time. Sometimes monsters pass right through WW unscathed, even when I have a 95% chance to hit them. Some of those potential strikes at 2 or 3 FPA are wasted on thin air as WW passes by monsters. Frenzy has reliable single-target damage.
