It is a common misconception that Sword Specialization can only proc off of normal (white) swings. This is not the case and is likely confusion over Windfury Totem. Windfury only procs off of normal (white) swings. Sword Specialization procs from all damaging attacks, including special attacks. The extra attack is normal melee swing (white attack) and is always done by the weapon in the main hand.

It counts Whirlwind as a single attack for chance of proc.
