If a druid wields a quarterstaff and casts shillelagh and afterwards casts guardian of nature, do the quarterstaff attacks count as Wisdom-based, so that the druid has advantage with them?


Shillelagh

For the duration, you can use your spellcasting ability instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of melee attacks using that weapon, ...

Guardian of Nature (in Great Tree form)

  • You make Dexterity- and Wisdom-based attack rolls with advantage.

Yes

Shillelagh does indeed make your weapon attacks Wisdom-based if you are a druid:

For the duration, you can use your spellcasting ability instead of Strength for a club or quarterstaff you touch.

Usually melee weapon attacks are Strength-based but the spell changes them to use your spellcasting ability which is Wisdom for druids.
