Question about Barb Tanking wep & Affixes

Hello! Like many of you, I am trying to gear my barbarian for ACT II inferno. Currently I have 61,000 life, about ~400 all resist, and around 7k armor. But my weapon is garbage.

What affixes am I looking for in a weapon? Obviously vitality/str is going to be something I want, but can anyone tell me (accurately) how good life leach and life on hit is? Does this heal for substantial amounts while tanking? Any other affixes I should be on the lookout for?

Thanks ahead of time.

IMO something that has life on hit and life steal %. That way when you do hit you get some life back (not much, but every bit helps). Preferably something fast too since you are tanking and not dps'ing.

As for how effective it may be, I'm not in A2 inferno so I wouldn't know, sorry. I think at a certain point if you could theoretically get 1k hp per hit that helps and makes it a bit worthwhile.

Thanks for your response, but does anyone with late game experience have any other opinions on this?
