The best choices of weapon for a Melee Enchantress are . . . ?

I've read a few guides, and I've decided to go kamikaze and do a Full ES sorc who attempts to tank using Insight + Prayer merc + high warmth + very high Integer Damage Reduction. With that said, I'm a bit stumped for what to go with for my weapon.

I've heard:

BotD in a Phase Blade

Passion in a something

Kingslayer /w maxed masteries which doesn't really fit an ES sorc, given they need the points

IUNNO WHAT ELSE. I seek recommendations.

Passion Phase Blade. Zeal will let you dish out a lot more fire damage. BotD would be a waste on an Enchantress. Kingslayer is a good backup if you don't want to use Frozen Orb against Fire Immunes. You can focus on Lightning Mastery mostly and just put 1 point in the other masteries.

Phase Blade the only good option? For the IAS, I assume. I dislike the way they look but there's not much else to use. Maybe a Cryptic Sword since they look awesome? Bleh, -30 vs -10 and the damage average is useless isn't it. Style points . . . ?

Also, I think the name "Doctor Clock" is excellent.

EDIT: I Just checked the Sork strategies sticky on breakpoints, and the PB 65 IAS final breakpoint vs. the Cryptic's 129 IAS is, in a word, inarguable.

Also phase blades don't need repairing. It can be quite expensive repairing a passion sword.

Passion (Phase Blade) is always good choice.

I have used at least these weapons with enchant sorcs along the years.
Crescent Moon (Phase)
CtA (Phase)
Fleshripper
Lawbringer (Phase)
Ribcracker
Last Wish (Phase)

At least that Decrepify curse from Lawbringer might be good with Integer Damage Reduction build. Fleshripper should work nicely too. Both are quite good against fire immunes too.

Oh yes, the money issue. I'll be so packed with charms I won't exactly be hauling around suits of armor to Charsi and Jamella, will I?

I like Crescent Moon a lot, as well as the Fleshripper. These could be good things to try out. Lawbringer looks very very appealing with the -50% target defense as well.

Passion Phase blade is where I would bet my money at.
