Frenzy Gloves

I'm gathering endgame gear for my Frenzy Barb. I've given a bit of thought to glove selection. One train of thought uses Dracul's for the CTC life tap while another camp advocates the use of Laying of Hands for the massive +damage to demons and IAS. The LoH build does not use Drac's due to the fact that a main weapon in the build has a high chance of casting decrepify which of course would be a competing curse with the life tap.
I like the reasoning behind the the decrepify build however, I'm not 100% sold on LoHs as the choice of gloves. I'm not ubering with this build so it's not necessary to have the high damage to demons. I'm considering using Lavagouts:

2% Chance To Cast Level 10 Enchant On Striking
Half Freeze Duration
Adds 13-46 Fire Damage
+20% Increased Attack Speed
Fire Resist +24%

These gloves also have 20% IAS and as far as I know the enchant will not effect the decrepify. The enchant increases weapon damage and also increases AR to the tune of 101% for level 10. The added fire damage is a bonus and the gloves also have fire resist similar to that on the LoHs.

Any thoughts on this?
I think there are better choices out there. You can check out by yourself but i suspect that the ar boost from enchant won't be that high after mastery + frenzy kick in. The added fire damage is neglectable too.

Other possible choices:
-Rares with stats, ias and resists.
-Crafted blood gloves with stats, ias and resists (good luck here tho ^^)
-Upped bloodfists - the fhr is godly since you will get hit alot thanks to your lack of shield.
personally i feel tat dracs does very well to keep u alive becos when the lifetap gets casted, it's easy to stay alive with possibly full life even when u are mobbed as long as u keep hitting and maybe warcry a bit when u are losing life too fast. tat is if u are not under iron maiden of cos. helps keep ur merc alive too. :grin:
