Tanky Wizard?

Is there such thing as a "tanky" wizard who can stand toe-to-toe with enemies at higher difficulties and live? If so, what's the build?

How will this hold up compared to a sword and board, defensive build barb?

^it will cost 10X as much as a average HOTA barb, less eDPS, but better freeze/party buffs for group play and stuff

also it's pretty fun to play, but yeah, dont let anyone fool you on the cost.

Archon is typical tanky wizard build. But you *NEED* a lifesteal weapon (and don't believe those who say you don't).
