In the Core Rulebook, Getting Started, in the Wisdom section, it says, "Wisdom is the most important ability for clerics and druids, and it is also important for paladins and rangers."

How is Wisdom important for Paladins? A search for "Wisdom" on the Paladins page turns up a few skills that use it, and that's it. Rogues and Bards have the same number of class skills that use Wisdom.

The Exchange

Paladin spells used to be based on Wis, so I would guess the Fluff text is left from 3.5/3.0 days


I'd guess the line is a leftover from 3.x, when a Paladin's spellcasting was tied to WIS, rather than CHA.

Edit: Woo-hoo! Ninjas and the Gang!


Left over from 3.5.


well.. could be important for not coming to the wrong conclusion and smiting the wrong person
