On a side note, it sounds like the main issue Barbs have at present is that they need much better gear than Wizard/DemonHunter to survive Inferno mode.
There was an interesting thread I was reading about tanking Inferno mode, basically huge resistances, good shield, and high armour is the key, but you need to run end of nightmare/start of inferno a lot to get that gear before pushing onwards.

I hope things go well for the barb, I'm thinking that will be my second char :D

My aussie arse it is... Diamond skin at lvl 58 allows you to absorb something like 18K points of damage.
This only lasts for 6 seconds.
Energy/Force Armour = Greater than 65% of your health in damage only = 35% of your total health.

In Act 3 Hell, that equates to about 4 hits from most Yellow/Blue mobs.

Think about how that plays out with a 0 vit, high regen gear set up.....

4k hp, stack regen, cant be hit for more than 35% of your hp....

Only downside is dots, terrible terrible dots

Act 1 is apparently not too bad, act2 onwards the packs of champion/elites own you.
btw that guy plays 24/7 so I'd hope he'd be able to kill a boss....
