Does EE allow paladins to gain bonus spells for high wisdom?

Pretty sure 2nd edition rules allowed it but i dont think the original BG did

    No.

    Clerics and druids get bonus spells based on wisdom. Paladins, rangers, and shamans don't.

    I needed to know this. So BG1 paladins can put money into other variables besides wisdom. Like BG1 sorcerers do not need intelligence or charisma. I assume it is the same way with BG2 paladins and sorcerers.

    What about BG1and BG2 mages? I May play one again some day. Do they still need high intelligence?

    Mage intelligence affects the ability to learn spells. Level 9 spells need 18 intelligence. But you can use potions and other means to learn the spells and you won’t unlearn them when your intelligence reverts. Wisdom for any character other than clerics and druids is irrelevant but for a couple of dialogue checks and lore. Sorcerers don’t need good charisma or intelligence other than what they get as any class (lore and reaction checks).

    In core rules they need it for spell learning %, maximum spells per level and ability to cast 9th level spells.

    Thanks. Does this continue on into BG2? I plan on going there.

    Yep. Also, if you don't have high enough intelligence to learn a spell you just need to drink potion of genius.

    Thanks. I am having a lot of fun playing a paladin main character with 3 sorcerers, a cleric and a thief. I think this will work if I play BG1 again and when I play BG2.
