Any good?

Somebody told me that greater Whirlwind sucks when playing a Archer. Is this true? I thought ten shots before the enemy can reach me really rocks!! What should i pick for my highlevel abilities?

In a way it does, because you can cast improved haste and I believe that gives you 9 attacks a round. used with the ability to do maximum damage per attack, you should easily get more damage than with whirlwind

Archers can make 10 attacks/round normally when enchanted by improved haste and using improved gauntlets of weapon specialization or Tungan Bow.

I would suggest smite and critical strike to maximize the utility of your archer.

Whirlwind's great with weapons that usually get few hits per turn. Choose whirlwind with Keldorn, whacking 10 times per round with Carsomyr is fun...
