Yeah, honestly, I don't feel survivability is a problem. Maybe if you're not stacking Vitality. It's really essential that you break 10k morale before buffs. On top of that, you need your mitigations as close to cap as possible.
Personally, I achieve >60% of both just off of Hytbold gear and some random Vit jewelry I cobbled together. (It's my graduating semester, so I've been too busy to work on a complete tank set with separate LIs and all that. Alas.)
