Battle Faerie Dagger is a Central Arena prize in the revamped Battledome, which has made it exceptionally cheap. This weapon suffers from fractional icons in terms of both its attack and defense, which is never nice to hear.

Battle Faerie Dagger averages 3.65 icons on offense, which is far from spectacular, but it also provides 5.6 icons of defense, for 9.25 total icons. Considering that there are 9 icon weapons in this price range such as Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer, Battle Faerie Dagger is not that appealing. Battle Faerie Dagger is only useful when it successfully attacks and defends BOTH Light and Physical icons, and even then it is barely better than simply attacking with a 9-iconer.

This means in that Battle Faerie Dagger is a situational use weapon at best. By no means should Battle Faerie Dagger be thought of as a primary weapon, but against an opponent dealing plenty of Light and Physical icons, this dual duty is acceptable. Most battlers will quickly outgrow this though.

Price/Power (1/5)
While physical is a common and nice icon to block, this weapon is by no means good enough for the task. Being a dual duty, it has to be at a point where it is still useful. As it stands, this item's attack isn't strong enough to be an attacking item, nor defense powerful enough to be a defensive one.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Physical is highly easy to block, light may be slightly harder but realistically at this point there is nothing special with this weapon.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
If you want a dual duty, try the cheaper and more stable Scarab Ring, or upgrade to a Golden Compass. If you plan on getting a higher attack, try a Scroll of the Scholar which offers a ton more icons, but also includes the icons of this weapon.

Other Points (1 Bonus)
This item was/is given out as a Battledome prize, which lowered its price dramatically.

Final Thoughts
A dual duty which fails at both jobs.
