    Currently Have:

    High Tide +
    HP +10%
    ATK +10%

    I can switch HP or ATK for a DEF +12%.. should I do it?

    I can't really see this dagger used on a DD (we don't have any meta dd that uses dagger really)
    Only use i can see is if you like the 100% evade DD thing
    In most cases you would use that for Tank/Support DEF for ATK should be good (another hp+ would be perfect)

    I don't see a point of putting DEF on evade dagger, damage increase from 10% def is so meh for tank DEF based abilities that it is not worth it, Make priority on HP then ATK or SPR (either one works, ATK for units you want make DW or when you want to use this to add your DPS some evade, SPR for evade tanks).

    not really sure what a DD is, BUT i do agree switching ATK for another HP if I could.. however.. assuming I create a 100% evade DPS, then either would be useful but DEF would definitely not.

    i honestly didn’t even know where were any defense based attacks. I have/would stack DEF on daggers with high tide because it means u can max defensive stats for tanks and freeing up more slots for other things. Or possibly on a support unit that makes them less squishy.

    which is my dilemma.. with a dagger with such a high ATK stat (+165) benefit more from more ATK on DPS/Tank&DPS units or should i scrap the ATK for DEF to be used with more Support/Tank/Healer Units? Even if I were to keep that ATK +10% how much more beneficial is that anyways

    You forgot DEF as there are many fixed attacks nowadays that can't be covered.

    Locke Dagger is for EVADE tanks, not for tanks... so you want to focus on HP first, then SPR... because DEF doesnt matter (whether you have 1500 or 1450 or 600 enemy will still miss with physical attacks)... In case you want to use it for DPS you pick ATK...
    so the best options for Locke Dagger in my opinion are (in priority order):
    1) Rare + HP + HP
    2) Rare + HP + SPR
    3) Rare + HP + ATK
