Mirrored Image provides a much higher Deflection bonus (+30 at full power), but it diminishes with each hit. Displaced Image bonuses are static (+10, but also helps Reflex) .

They don't stack. But once Mirrored is down, Displaced will take over.

 

Mirrored might be really good if you can mostly avoid being hit.

 

I guess usually use both as a Trickster? You'll have better defenses early, when it counts the most.

Generally mirrored is enough for most encounters - it is cheap and you can recast it if it gades plus if you are sword and board and or a paladin mirrored image often is the only thing you need on top of your great defenses save displaced for "longer" boss encounters.

Why not both?

 

Higher defense early, when it counts the most. Moderate defense throughout encounters.

 

The problem is cost though. 3 Guile is really prohibitive - even at level 20.

 

Also, for melees, you might not want to spend so much time casting if you want to start the fight with Charge/Shadow Step, etc. to interrupt dangerous casters.

 

Anyways, it's amazing how all my questions are answered in prior threads. But it takes forever to search for them! ;)
