Notes Edit

  • Although this causes no extra threat specifically, doing normal weapon damage to four enemies at once can go a long way to keeping aggro in a cluster of mobs. Also, each individual hit has the normal chance of going critical. Two or more criticals from a large two-hander can make a decisive difference to the average cluster of mobs.
  • When using two one-handed weapons, it hits with both weapons.
  • Be careful of crowd control with whirlwind however. You shouldn't be breaking your teammates sheep/shackle/seduce.
  • This attack also has an additional use in PvP - due to the fact it can hit anyone in melee range regardless of where they are attacking you from, it can be used to teach a lesson to that irritating Rogue who is constantly backstabbing you.
  • With its 8 yard range, it can hit enemies in your dead zone (Allows you to hit enemies too close for you to intercept / charge, yet still far enough that if they're out of your melee range, you can hit them).
