    Default Archmage DCs in Epic Levels

    EDIT:
    I mis-remembered the calculation for DCs and thought Heighten brought it to character level not highest spell level. Disregard please.

    Spell DCs are not based on Caster Level, they are based off Spell Level, Attribute Modifiers, feats and equipment.

    10 Base
    09 Spell Level (Heighten)
    13 Attribute Modifier for a 36 Int
    02 Archmage Primary School
    01 Spell Focus
    01 Greater Spell Focus
    03 ED Specialization
    01 ED School Mastery
    02 Greater Focus Item
    ==
    42 DC

    Caster Level Does Effect your Spell Penetration. The Magistar ED does improve your caster levels by 5 giving you 5 more Spell Penetration when it is at Level 5.

    Yeah, I looked it up and edited the first post. I haven't had a single spell pen problem but hitting the DCs is proving to be a non-starter. I calculated with best gear and a +5 tome on my build that 50 is highest DC I can hit at cap. I am trying to figure out if that will be sufficient for this new content but everyone gobbled up the Int tomes from the event before I got to grab one for this guy.
