Wise is an Invention perk that boosts all experience gained while the item is equipped by 1% per rank, up to 50,000 additional experience per day. Using an item with Wise will not cause any additional charge drain (e.g. training Cooking with a Wise item will not cause any charge drain). It can be created in weapon, armour, and tool gizmos. Like all perks, Wise does not stack with itself, so only one item with Wise needs to be equipped to fully benefit from it.

Wise will give bonus experience calculated from the base amount per action, applied additively with other experience boosts. The total base experience before wise is capped is calculated below:

Experience before capped
Rank Bonus% XP before capped
1 1% 5,000,000
2 2% 2,500,000
3 3% 1,666,666

Wise is commonly used while training non-combat skills to increase experience rates. It stacks additively with experience-boosting sets. Finding a slot for Wise to be used in can be a challenge - experience sets usually have body and legs, the combined Catalyst fragment occupies the off-hand slot (see Manifested knowledge#Comparison with a Wise off-hand for more details), and augmented tools occupy the main-hand slot. As such one may want to have a main-hand, an off-hand, and body/legs armour with Wise attached, and switch between them depending on the skill.

Rank 2 Wise is cheaply and easily available at all Invention levels, and it can be combined with the Mobile perk for additional skilling use (via Flexible parts and Subtle/Dextrous components; see suggestions below). The augmented flowers obtained in the Invention tutorial are an ideal option for Wise; another common choice is augmented enhanced Excalibur. Wise 3 is fairly rare to obtain without using Seren components.

When the wise perk is active, an icon will display in the Buff bar displaying the percentage of the daily experience cap that has been earned thus far.
