It does not affect the time required between prayers, or the quality of rewards, although it will allow a player to gain favor faster, and thus access better rewards sooner.
Wisdom is also one of the two stats needed for Science Talking.
- You need a minimum amount of wisdom in order to initiate a science talk with a character.
- Higher wisdom causes your relationships with the gods to increase and decrease faster.

- Levelling wisdom past certain thresholds will cause you to grow impressive facial hair.
