It's not so much about what content you can handle, but the chance you will ever get a certain drop. Lets do a simple, inaccurate calculation, just to show my point :P

Lets say that the best barbarian weapon is some sort of 2 handed rare with 6 different properties taken from a pool of 30. Now, the min-maxers will have already figured out what the best possible combination is of properties this weapon could have. The chance of getting the correct properties alone would be 6/30 * 5/29 * 4/28 * 3/27 * 2/26 * 1/25 = 0,000168 % whenever that particular rare weapon drops. But that's only right -kind- of properties, we want them all maxed. I'll just grab a random number out of the air and for the sake of argument say that the chance of a property being maxed is 1/20. That's 1/20 ^ 6 = 0,0000015625 % whenever we get that rare weapon with the perfect properties to drop. We multiply the two numbers.... and we get the grand number of... 0,0000000000002625 % chance. Or a chance of 1 in 38 trillion every time we find a rare of the highest tier of the particular weapon. That means that if you would play diablo 3 for your entire life, live to a 100 years of age, become so incredibly good that you find that rare weapon every second of your time playing, and never do anything else. You chances of finding this item, EVER, would be still be less than 0,0083 % ;)

Needless to say almost every single barbarian would like to get their hands on this weapon, and it is very unlikely to even ever drop. I think that item might go for more than 10$.

There must be 1 crazy rich bastard out there somewhere ;)
