The "Thorn Burst" ability of the Wood Oracle reads:

Thorn Burst (Su): As a swift action, you can cause sharp splinters of wood to explode outward from your body. These splinters deal 1d6 points of piercing damage per two oracle levels (minimum 1d6) to all creatures within a 10-foot burst. A Reflex save halves this damage. In addition, the sharp splinters count as caltrops in the area until your next turn. You can use this ability once per day, plus one additional time per day at 5th level and every five levels thereafter.

(emphasis added)

What is the DC for the reflex save in question?

Thorn burst is a revelation of the Wood mystery. The rules for revelations state:

Unless otherwise noted, the DC to save against these revelations is equal to 10 + 1/2 the oracle’s level + the oracle’s Charisma modifier.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Note that in most case DCs are 10 + 1/2 level + ability modifier. Sometimes there are subtleties like spells taking the spell level instead of 1/2 level, or other bonus stacking on top of that, but otherwise exceptions are rare. \$\endgroup\$ – Anne Aunyme Nov 10 '17 at 12:16
