Artifact question

I have a question for idle discussion: Why do the Orbs of Dragonkind have DC 25 Will save to resist? If you take gold dragons as an example, their Will save is +16 as a Young Adult -- which will save against the Orb more than half of the time (and that's assuming the dragon is not wearing a Wisdom or Save-boosting item).

Since these are supposed to be artifacts, any thoughts on why the save DC is so low? Is "these are artifacts" countered by "these are dragons--they're supposed to be badass" ?

Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there--I'd like to get some other opinions about it. Thanks!
