I'm writing an essay and I was wondering if I would put a comma here before as:

Reputation is based on integrity and wisdom as your ability to demonstrate probity would gain you favor among many people.

  • I would. (But I would probably split the sentence in two.) – Drew Oct 20 '14 at 3:36

    It certainly helps. After all, punctuation is not about grammar but improved readability. – Kris Oct 20 '14 at 7:17

As adds nothing here. Get rid of it and use two separate sentences:

Reputation is based on integrity and wisdom. Your ability to demonstrate probity would gain you favor among many people.
