One notable advantage that this power has over other Warrior areas is that the Barbarian can move and attack while the power is active. Unlike other Warrior areas where the Barbarian stands still for several seconds before attacking, Whirlwind can be quite effective if the Barbarian continues attacking or even uses an area skill such as Expansive Wave. The downside is that Whirlwind does not do as much damage as other areas.
