There are some options for a low accuracy perspective :

  • for melee two-handed, the Rannig's Wrath benefice from +5acc (rapier bonus) and +4acc (Thrusting enchantment) and potentialy +20acc from the modal ;
  • The Magistrate's Cudgel, give +10 generic acc with Maked on hit, and you dont need to soulbind the weapon to get the bonus ; But with your MC you cant get the Suberb enchantment ;
  • Fleetbreaker have an enchantment that give for the weapon 30% of Misses converted to Grazes, +4 Accuracy and +10% Damage ; 
  • The Blade of The Endless Paths provide some acc during the fight for the weapon (Seeker's prize) and can lower the deflection on crit ;
  • The Sanguine Great Sword have 2 enchantments that can help for the acc issue : Thirsty Blade and Parched Blade (the upgrade) give 20% and 30% misses-to-grazes that is universal (work also with spells and chants). 

Debuffing enemies is always a good way to lower their defenses, ciphers or wizards are excellent in this purpose. As a chanter, you can also debuff and there is a chant, The Bride..., for +5Per and +5 dex. Cipher and Priest can give you Aware instead of Insightful that can help.

I guess as a Shieldbearer you will use a shield. So Sasha's Singing Scimitar is the best option imo (besides using Grave Calling to kiull your own Skeleton summons which is ver potent but also very hacky). If you use the enchantment "Companion's Prelude" you will give a nice action speed bonus to your party + summons based on the number of your held phrases.

Yes i use shield. Too bad Sasha Scimitar is ugly compared to other unique Sabres 😔 Do Chanter summons benefit much from Empower?

No but that's still free Empower or Phrases, and the party action speed aura is worth it anyway.

You might consider another 1h as main weapon if you prefer, but I would recommend picking Sasha's at least for secondary set. Just use it at the beginning of important fights, the switch. The mod that gives use back all phrases (but not the Empower point) can be seen as ideal for such use.

You have plenty of possibilities for main weapon. Flail and club are neat for that defense debuffing modal, complementary crush damages and good uniques.

You'll be Pocking anyway. An herald isn't going to do much damages with his weapon.

Yes, you could use Sasha's in the second weapon setup and use it for an empowered summoning (summons last a lot longer then) and then switch to another weapon setup. Since your main roles are supposed to be tank and summoner I would pick something that helps your defenses/sturdyness and/or engagement.

Examples:

  • Kapana Taga with All Comers and Champion's Relic
  • Pukestabber with Numb and usage of the dagger modal
  • Bardatto's Luxury
  • Squid's Grasp
  • Duskfall with Drawing Parry
  • Griffin's Blade with Hound's Resilience
  • Gladiator Sword

If you want to be the best tank then Bardatto's Luxury is the ultimate weapon. Any summon that dies grants you Hardy inspiration which stacks with any other armor buff (including Hardy inspiration from another source). The Immunity to constitution afflictions is also nice to have if you plan to use Hylea's Boon to achieve the highest defenses.

Depends a bit. Imo "Many Lives Pass By" nonstop is the most universally useful phrase with Brisk Recitation, but stuff like Ancient Memory if combined with Exalted Endurance is also nice and good for the party, too. If you have another healer then Mercy and Kindness is very good, too. If you have high defenses and armor and only tend to get minor damage from attacks then Her Courage Thick as Steel is very good, too. The 10pt damage shield gets refreshed every 3 secs then which nullifies all the grazes that might otherwise hurt you.

If you have ranged-heavy party with reloading weapons (firearms and crossbows) then Sure-Handed Ila is very good, too because it applies -20% reloading time AND -20% recovery time to those weapons, making the reloading very fast. It stacks with the action speed bonus of Sasha's Singing Scimitar.
