Sage +25 presence bonus

Hi
I just noticed that my sage has more presence than my other maxed characters.
I have a vanguard and a commando which have all the datacrons and the legacy presence bonuses. They both have 565 presence (225 base plus 340 bonus).
My sage has all the datacrons and has 590 presence (225 base plus 365 bonus).

Where does my Sage's +25 presence come from?
Some web sites mention that Force Studies gives a presence bonus, but it's not menitioned on Torhead or in-game.

Apologies if this has been covered and explained before.
It's not impossible. It's just improbable.

In the seer tree, the talent Wisdom on the bottom tier offers 6% bonus to presence (or 3% with one point in it). My guess is that you will find your bonus presence coming from there.

Thanks Zeshakha, makes sense.

I had some difficulty to figure out how this 6% bonus applies, however. I made a breakdown of my Presence:

225 Base
+100 First human char to reach 50, unlock +100 presence to legacy
+200 20 comps (5 per class) x +10 presence legacy bonus
+40 Datacrons (2 x +2, 2 x +3, 5 x +4 and the +10)
___
565 sub-total presence (matches what I have on my other chars)
+25 (Sage bonus from the skill Wisdom )
___
590 total presence (matches my Sage's character sheet)

Now, a +25 bonus would come from 416.67 presence (25/0.06). In my breakdown there's no combination that adds up to a number close to 416. Closest would be base 225 + 200 (20 comps) = 225.

The only way I get close to 415 is if I disregard the +10 comp legacy bonuses from the other classes, so in essence:
225 Base + 100 (legacy +100) + 50 (5 comps x +10) + 40 =415.
Apply 6% to 415 = 24.9 (25 rounded)
It's not impossible. It's just improbable.
