Fighter: Intelligence or Wisdom?

Hi everyone,

I decided to start a new game with a basic fighter and I managed to get a high roll of 98 after twenty minutes of clicking. With Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, and Charisma all maxed out, I wasn't sure if I should put the rest into Intelligence or Wisdom.

Dual-Classing aside, I know that some conversations in BG2(EE) have options that come from high WIS scores, but I don't know if there are any that depend on high INT scores or if there's some other reason to have a high INT as a fighter.

Any thoughts?

    ^- What (s)he said. If you have no roleplaying reasons for either, go with INT for the above reasons.

    I seem to remember that the only wisdom check in the game (aside from wishing) can be easily fooled with a potion.

    Already mentioned above it seems:)

    Try roleplaying it out though..e.g.:

    Low INT = Never read the journal for quests....Randomise your quest choices.

    Low Wis = Choose dialogue options at random....

    Only one semi-important dialogue checks for wisdom, which is with the Spectator beholder in Shaguin city. Other than that wisdom offers no real benefit to a pure fighter. Intelligence is very important when fighting mind flayers, though. A 3 int fighter will have a very difficult time surviving vs mindflayers, unless buffed with genius potions. Because no matter how ridiculously good your ac is, a critical will kill 3 int, AND mindflayers WILL get criticals, since they have so many attacks/round.

    It's a pity there aren't many more PST style...

    In no-reload play Alesia (one of the best BG players) once suggested that having a good base Wisdom & Charisma (to get Balthazar ) is very important with Ascension.

    Thanks to @Harpagornis (shout out to @Alesia_BH ) we know the needed answers to get Balthazar:

    "Charisma 19 + Reputation 20 was enough!

    Here is the route that worked
