This is only going to be a problem with very high end barbs. Overall with what I saw on dueling so far is that 95% of barbs are everyone's whipping boys. You take that reduction away and barbs won't stand a chance. maybe instead of removing barbs, balance by giving more to ther classes, especially since this would also make longer more interesting battles.

well battles are already lasting 10-30 min for one death, that is if either side can actualy kill the other. but this is only an issue for tank barbs. the thing is for a tank a barb can actualy rach like 3-4 times the dps as any other class with equivilant gear because to this dmg reduction.

It might be too high, especially if they stack reduction from elites in every possible slot. Here's a 97% reduction one that appears to do just "okay" against other classes. The WD's hex in this video just owns him :)
