Attribute Guides

Wisdom, abbreviated as Wis, is a character attribute in Planescape: Torment.

Effects Edit

Possibly the single most important stat in the game, wisdom gives The Nameless One more dialogue options, and gives any character a bonus to experience, making them level up much faster. It also helps The Nameless One regain memories from his past lives, and thus aids storytelling.

Experience Bonus Edit

For each point of Wisdom above 12, a 2.5% bonus to experience is gained. This is at cumulative, whether or not it is rounded up or down. At 25 wisdom, 5% more bonus experience is gained over 24.
