ded for A+ teams that focus on attack first and damage output. Most AA teams prefer Dea

for As; ded is more crucial, dea isn't bad per se, but the vast majority of popular A forms are not defensively oriented.

It's a bit weird for the AA part; you really NEED to have one or the other. quite simply; if you're up against someone with dea(20) and ipd OR health(20), if you do not have ded, you aren't going to be able to scratch their formation. on the other hand; if you have dea and ipd, you might be able to soak up enough damage while your form slowly chips away at theirs. It's a bit difficult to quantify in absolute terms, but you really want to have dea OR ded with AA forms. If you can get both; do so.

One last thing to consider (more for As when there is flexibility), monster stats and potential combos.

Aya dragon has DED, in fact he's the only sin wyrm with DED, he's not a good candidate for a team though. why? poor stats
Ring dragon has DEA, and much better stats than Aya; so in this particular case: Ring is the better candidate for the team even though he has DEA as opposed to DED and generally you want DED over DEA for A forms.

OR on the other hand.... if you're using a formation that would take either Aya or Ring, you're probably using sin wyrms; notice that most of the high-stat sin wyrms are winged: mld, magma, nwd... Why not swap out that nidhogg for a lindwurm so you retain agility, lose guild combo, and gain winged combo with a better team player; at that point, you have 1 slot left; why not go for a Mesh Dragon DEA for that? it's one hell of a powerful DEA winged wyrm (in-fact the ONLY dea winged wyrm!) you will get a 4x team with species and winged (the two greatest damage modifier combos which is great for As). etc etc...

so there's no absolute answer of dea vs ded; it really depends on what formation you are trying to use, you need to look at it case by case
