    Tankabarian tanks good in hell? How to build him?

    A tankabarbarian, can he practically stand in the middle of a large pack beating him, and still survive?

    Max block
    Max damage reduction
    Max protection to cold, lightning, fire and poison
    Much stat points in Vita
    High lvl BO
    Much hit recovery

    25% of all attacks will hit (because of Max block). Then max damage reduction will shave off 75% of that damage. And he has high hit points.

    Is this viable in hell? Which build is good in 1.13? Frenzy? Whirlwind?

    Well, my berserk runs with similar stats. Every build is good in 1.13, as they were before. In fact, some might have gotten better due to IM removal, tho berserk is best IMHO.

    IMO It's a tradeoff, and there's a certain point that its uneccessary. max def and resist and DR and such is all good, but there's a cap on DR and resist, and after a certain point you start to seriously lose killing power to increase your defenses.

    Most barbs can set up for solid defenses (one of the barbs best sides), and still kill well. No need for overkill. my WW Barb has high enough Def with his SS that most act5 mobs seem to have only a 5% chance to hit (acording to the LCS), and he's a full WW damage setup (well, probably really a tuner build). So in all honesty, you can set up for top damage, and still be one of the toughest classes out there. It's the nature of the barb :)
