Wisdom is one of the six ability scores, a minimum natural score of 15 or 17 is required for cleric and druid dual-class combinations.

This score is very important for clerics and druids, as a high wisdom grants extra spell slots per spelllevel, the bonuses are cumulative, eg. a cleric with 15 wisdom will have two extra level 1 spellslots plus one extra level 2 spellslot. Shamans, Rangers and paladins do not gain such bonus – their spell slots are determined solely by their exp level.

Though original manuals suggest otherwise, it is worth noting that magic defense, saving throws adjustments and spell failure % are not implemented in actual gaming.

EffectsEdit

  • Lore Bonus: WIS adds a bonus to the character's base lore value, which intelligence also contributes to. This ranges from -20 at 6 WIS and below up to +40 at 25 WIS.[1]
  • Wish / Limited Wish: Although having high wisdom is not as important for wizards, it is still useful for getting the best results from Wish and Limited Wish.[2]

Druids and Clerics onlyEdit

In the original Baldur's Gate, the lore bonus given by a wisdom score of 15 is rather 5 than 3, the same as for 16. This is changed since the original Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn.
