Non-ill will and harmlessness are represented in the second link of the noble eightfold path, and therefore arise according to the development of right view, the first link. So compassion is dependent on the priority of wisdom.

“One makes an effort for the abandoning of wrong resolve & for entering right resolve: This is one’s right effort. One is mindful to abandon wrong resolve & to enter & remain in right resolve: This is one’s right mindfulness. Thus these three qualities — right view, right effort, & right mindfulness — run & circle around right resolve.”—MN 117

Right resolve is a component of the wisdom group:

“Right view & right resolve come under the aggregate of discernment.”—MN 44

The emphasis on the ascendancy of wisdom is made :

"So Ven. Sariputta — when there was still more to be done, having established Dhanañjanin the brahman in the inferior[4] Brahma world — got up from his seat and left. Then, not long after Ven. Sariputta’s departure, Dhanañjanin the brahman died and reappeared in the Brahma world.

And the Blessed One said to the monks, “Monks, Sariputta — when there was still more to be done, having established Dhanañjanin the brahman in the inferior Brahma world — has gotten up from his seat and left.”—MN 97
