    Default Infused Chaos Docent upgrade: +Reflex or +DC?

    I finished the Reign of Madness quest chain today and was pretty happy to get an Infused Chaos Docent as an end reward. I'm currently on my 2nd Wiz life and will be TRing into Sorc soon.

    I know +10 Reflex is considered one of the better upgrades but I was thinking +2 DC to Conj and Illusion is pretty good too (I'm going Earth Savant next life). I'm also intrigued by the Displacement effect (Delirium).

    Any thoughts?

    Displacement effect is excellent... if you can't cast it yourself, but you can.

    +2 DC is nice, but can be found on other gear and even crafted. +reflex is the way to go, although +will can also be a good choice if you have issues with will saves (which you shouldn't as a caster)

    Well I do seem to get hit with Greater Command on occasion but since I'm going sorc next life, I won't have the advantage of high Int + Insightful Reflexes so that probably makes +10 Reflex more useful.

    Couple things to keep in mind when trying to make this decision.

    1. At Level 14 what Conjuration/Illusion Spells will you be rocking? What other gear will you have at that level that could boost those DCs?
    2. At Level 14 what will your reflex save be?

    Obviously having both would be ideal and thus you can switch back and forth depending on need.

    Personally I think the reflex save will be the most useful as there is DC enhancing equipment at that level, but very little that will give you that much on reflex.

    But I encourage the exercise to determine if at least 50% of your spells will benefit from the increased DCs

    The 1st level spell protection from evil should ward against greater command.
