Obviously I just came back, so I am trying to hop into things headfirst.

Last night I was on a run in Gianthold and they needed the Rogue (me as a Wizard Rogue 13/2) to go into a room full of traps.  We are on Elite so a single hit even with evasion would kill me.  So they asked me what my reflex was.  I told everyone it was 24.

I was all but laughed at  It seems the ranger had a better reflex save than me, and the bard, and the cleric (well he had a 20). 

So my question is this.. how can I raise my reflex save?  With items (no idea how high they go) it is the highest number that works.  Then there are spells (nighshield for +3) and Haste for a +1 and Greater heroism for another +2.  My intelligence is 32.  So I have no idea how to get a 30+ reflex save.

Thanks

Reflex is based on your DEX score. A Resistance item will raise it (or there are the Trapblast Goggles from STK that are +4 reflex save). As will a number of rogue clickable abilities (Uncanny Dodge, Acrobat Showtime, etc.) which you don't have access to.  Also, for WIZ rogue you really should take "Insightful Reflexes" which replaces your DEX with INT for Reflex Saves, if you haven't already. 

Don't worry that the ranger had a higher save... any ranger, and most bards will have, as the Wiz part of your build has a rather slow reflex save progression.

My Wiz/Rog at level 20 only has a 26 reflex.

Oh, that is with insightful reflexes I am sorry for failing to mention that directly.  My Int is 32 with a +6 item.

You aren't going to be trap proof on a wiz/rog in elite crucible.  It is a 40 reflex save to save on a 2.

That said, you can get to 30+ pretty easy.

Max int with inciteful reflexes

+5 resistance item

Greater Heroism

Rog trap enhancement (you only get the first one +2)

Shroud +6 exception reflex save item (+3 from first two tiers pretty easy to get)

Haste

Human or Helf versatility

Now that sounds like a plan.

I am good with the 30ish (even low 30s) as it improves my life expectancy by quite a bit.

Right now I am a human, I may change that, if I understand the rules for Reincarnation and can change my race to Warforged and hop on the Archmage wagon.  Palemaster just doesnt do it for me yet.

I much preferred the Pale Master.  Tier III Lich form with maxed Necro DC makes your wails and fingers just downright nasty!
