You already have a socket on it, so you have the luxury of deciding to either maximize the damage for a barb, or reroll to dex.

I'd add though that the weapon is pretty much BiS for several monk specs, and barbs prefer % elemental damage weapons such as Devastator/Burning Axe of Sankiss for Fire (very strong build).

Either way it's a strong weapon - a great optimizable high dps 1h for any barb spec with a strong proc, or a decent monk weapon that could have higher dps roll.

I'll hang around this thread a lot, I consider myself something of a Diablo nut and theorycrafter, so I'll be able to help most folks out ;P
I think I'll keep it for the barb. Mostly because I got an Andariel's Visage with str. (Although... now that I think about it, that Visage has +lightning% and a Crusader skill, so it probably won't be used for a fire build. )
