Throughout the series there are a ton of items with effects like "+1 to dexterity of creations" and so on with other stats and resistances. When is this applied? Is it when the creation is first Shaped, when the item is equipped, or something completely different?

They work exactly the same way the items that stats or resistances for your character work. While an item is equipped, it will give the bonus to all your creations. Bonus intelligence doesn't count towards the two intelligence points needed to control a creation, however.

Then it's good that I buy those two levels of intelligence.

I don't equip anything that gives a bonus to my creations unless there's also a bonus for my character.

Oh well. Another day, another dementia.

What about something like the transference robe?
I believe it subtracts 2 from your strength, endurance, and dexterity but it adds them to your creations.
I actually used it during times when my shaper character shouldn't be fighting at all.
A parade of drayks behind me might be a good time when to do that.
Even 2 improved drayks can do much damage and all I have to do is stay out of the way.
It doesn't affect intelligence so you won't have to worry about creating fewer things.

Even when I'm playing as a shaper, I'm not very big on using creations for most of the game.

And I repeat:

Put simply, I don't like using anything that reduces anybody's stats, regardless of how good it might be otherwise.
