Wisdom is one of the six character abilities. It's very important for clerics and druids, as a high wisdom grants extra spell slots per level. They also have a higher minimal number for this character ability. Rangers and paladins also have high amount of wisdom as a minimal requirement, but do not gain any bonus spells from having a high wisdom - their spell slots are determined solely by their level.

Although having high wisdom is not as important for wizards, it is still useful for getting the best results from Wish and Limited Wish.

The Bonus spells are cumulative, a cleric with 15 wisdom has two level 1 spellslots and one level 2 spellslot as a bonus for example. For non-caster classes, intelligence and wisdom only adds a bonus to lore bonus, so it's wiser to spend points on the other character abilities when creating a character.
