I have yet to do this boss with a barb in squad and we've never had a member die, so I dunno what you all are doing wrong. :]

My bm has 10.5k hp w/o barb buff. That is 3 base vit, no rank 9, only 3 sockets filled for hp (3 vit stones) while all the rest is sapphire gemmed and not even all +10 armors ...
My bm can tank aba and seat bosses, even though I need a cleric in squad for buff (not mystic cause no def buff). Keep in mind that only the FIRST bleed tick hits hard, the ticks after only hit 1/3th each time. Also keep in mind that BB doesn't reduce the bleed, so you are actually better off with IH spammed on the tank (and possibly purify before bleed ticks).
The only problem I could see for your server, is that it opened when the aps-craze already started. So you guys probably don't have the old toons to dig up.

I understand your point WnbTank but then it's more of a server's problem than the mini-expansion's problem.
Indeed, servers like Sanctuary and Heaven's Tear, that have been around since the beginning, already had players with decent TT99 gear or even Nirvana before R9 and whatnot. Also, since there's a lot of gear available, the prices for them are also lower. I see where you're coming from but, yeah, like I just mentioned, that is a problem in the server's population itself not the new BH bosses..

Really sounds like a server problem, I have no problem getting tanks on DW, especially during certain peak times.

It actually does the "full dmg bleed" after first hit too. Least I`ve gotten hit for over 9k after the boss was ~50%.

If sins are QQing then it must mean the game is moving slowly in the right direction.

much like i made several venos for specific task(s) then game changes were made after only short benefits from using said venos, thus thwarting my efforts & effectively retiring my venos....
brings me to ask the people who made sins for similar means..............How's it feel ?

I don't think gear is the problem. It's been nearly 2 weeks now and some APS people are still crying because they are unable to connect the dots and adapt. The problem is obviously between the keyboard and chair.
I don't care how much money people dumped into their sins. They need to accept the fact that they can't tank everything and start adding classes that can tank these bosses if they are sick of eating dirt. They would also need to cut back on the damage a little and let the tank do it's job, but it would be a lot faster than party wiping 5 times and waiting for the cleric to run back to rez everybody. Amirite? Unfortunately, the concept of backing off so they don't steal aggro is something that does not compute for most sins. b:chuckle
The new Abaddon boss with a mostly APS squad was... amusing.
