    You would really have to link your bnet profile so we can see each piece of gear.

    One piece of advice: ditch the off-hand weapon for a dagger or sword with high attack speed, a socket, crit damage, etc. Even if the dps is somewhat lower than the mighty weapon you'll still gain applied (real) dps.

    I'd say you are on the right track.
    1. Add more DPS, Lets you drop the LoH. New MH weapon, Avg Damage and Attack speed on Rings and Amulets.
    2. Add about 70-100 AR. Nice for key runs and uber runs.
    3. Add a bit more Crit Hit helps keep WotB up.
    4. Add attack speed helps with DPS but gives you more tornado ticks.

    Rough Order I would do things. All of your armor should have 60+ AR from now on unless its a set piece that causes it to double or triple in value.

    1. New MH weapon
    a. 900+ DPS weapon(Axe or Mace) with 100+Str, 50+CD, OS. Put a 80+ Emerald in it.
    b. 1000+DPS weapon(Axe or Mace) with 100+ Str, OS. Put a 80+ Emerald in it.
    2. New OH Ring: I'd probably go for 50+Str, 4+Crit Hit, 6+AS, Any kind of average damage is a bonus. Unity rings are nice as well 150+Str, 45+Avg Damage, 4.5 Crit Hit, 250+ LoH, 3-4% Bonus to Elites.
    3. New Shoulders: 240+ Str, 85+ Vit, 60+AR...
    4. Boots: 120+ Str, 90+Vit, 60+AR, MS.
    5. Helm: Budget Andy's 100+Str, AS, CC, OS, Lowish Extra FD or Highish End: IK Helm 170+Str, 6% CC, 12% Life, OS

    Most of the items i've shown can be had for 3-5m(last I checked), the weapon may be a bit more. If you can get a second piece of IK Helm or Boots. You may want to get some nice Rare gloves with decent Str and 2-3 DPS modifiers.

    Good Luck.
