Does whirlwind apply deadly strike?

Just wondering. With weapon mastery and the weapon I use, I should have a 55% deadly strike, and a 30% chance to crit. Meaning almost all of my attacks do double damage, if it applies to Whirlwind.

Deadly strike does work for WW, but deadly strike and critical strike roll separately.

In your case, you have 55% chance to DS + (100%-55%)*30% to CS, which would result in a total of 68.5% to do double damage instead of the 85% you were thinking of.
