Slow Q

Hello Barbarians,

I've been dueling some barbs, and working (actually starting =P) my own barb. A question popped into my mind, is WW affected by slow at all or no? If yes, then how would you counter its usage?

Thanks in advance,

-Dodo
 
Slow makes your whirlwind move slower, that's all i don't see why you would even bother countering it.
 
Note that you move slower, but thanks to that you hit more, as you're "in range" for a longer period of time (assuming your target is immobile)

The only char i can think of who would use slow would be a smiter and moving slower = desynching less = quicker death. You wanna desynch as much as possible in the shortest distance possible vs smite. The argument you move slower = more hits is ****ing dump cos if you are vs any other build you are going to be tri-whirling anyway and moving slower doesn't give you any advantages at all, why do you think bvcs skill the frw skill?

Note: desynching and moving quickly will help you in bvb aswell.



 
Take a deep breath.
Count to ten. Try that few more times if it doesn't help.

Try not to be as offensive. Reported.

On topic:

So you desynch vs smiter, eh?
Doin 2 inch whirls doesn't make you desynch much, and if you do long whirls, you're as good as dead.
Also, the fact that you hit more if you move slower is correct.
I didn't say it's a good tactic vs anyone.

Cheers.
 
Yes, i desynch vs smite and it works wonders, i also prefer enigma over forti in this duel. PM me or whisp for a duel *dmngd with your smite (Europe Ladder).

This question was pvp orientated and your gg pvm views are not needed.

Cheers.
 
Let's try to keep things civil guys; we don't want this place to turn into the official World of Warcraft forums ;)

Sorry Hal, but if I wasn't civil' point it out, thanks.

dmngd:

I don't play ladder, nor smiter.
"gg pvm" - translate please.
More on this, I think that most of the people who play PvP on ladder are forced to PvM - go figure.


EDIT:

I've just reread the OP's question again, and all he want's to know is WW affected by slow.
Not the number of hitchecks, only the moving speed.
 
I play Europe ladder because i restarted playing diablo about on year ago there and i haven't been bothered to create a new char on nl once i found out that it's better for pvp. After i found that out though i started East nl so no i don't only play ladder.. same acc *dmngd on east nl.
