Do not try to worry to much about gearing as you level up. Worry about gear when you hit elder game.

You don't need accuracy at all as a PT tank, most of our threat comes from Tech or Elemental damage which can't be dodged,blocked, or parried.

I have poured over the PT tanking mechanics and accuracy is a wasted stat.
End>Shield>absorb>def those are your top stats, aim is not worth mentioning because it comes on your armoring and mods regardless and doesn't contribute to defensive stats only threat.

Also don't go over 15% def... it will hurt your threat in the long run.

Sorry Olos, quoted the wrong person.

No worries.

But going over 15% defense is perfectly fine. I run with 20% or more depending on fight, and it doesn't negatively effect shielding threat regen or Rocket Punch reset, even when I pop oil slick and am effectively at 40% defense.
