It looks like the only notable turn away from dual wielding occurs at level 5, before Rage damage increases at level 9 cause dual wielding to pretty much run away with things. I found it also interesting that the great axe begins to outshine the great sword fairly early on, which is contrary to conventional wisdom and it manages to pull ahead dual-wielding for a bit at 13th level.
