Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.8.11
by: VgerAN [More]
Pawn calculates scores for items to help you easily find upgrades for your gear. It's completely customizable, and applicable to any class and situation: for example, it can help you decide whether to equip the ring with a higher item level but one stat you don't want (say, strength for shamans), or the ring with the lower item level but all good stats. It's that level of customization that makes it very different from more general mods like GearScore and more specialized mods like TankPoints.

Pawn can be used by new players right off the bat without needing to change any options, or by advanced players who plan out their gear upgrades, build Excel spreadsheets, install Rawr, and read Elitist Jerks.

Language support

Pawn works with English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese, and includes an untested translation into Traditional Chinese. Unlike most addons, it's NOT possible to use the English version on a language that it doesn't support. (If you're interested in helping translate Pawn into other languages, let me know!)

Staying in touch

For fastest assistance with Pawn, leave a comment here or check the official thread at Curse. You can also become a fan of Vger on Facebook and get updates of new versions and stuff like that. You can also leave questions or comments there if you don't have an account on this site.

Getting started

Pawn will automatically set itself up to work with your characters, but there's a lot that you can do to customize it. See the readme file included with Pawn for more information on getting the most out of Pawn.
Version 1.8.11

Made a tweak to make Pawn's Quest Advisor work better with ElvUI.
Updated Russian and German translations.

Version 1.8.10

The new Timeless, Flexible, Warforged, and Heroic Warforged items will no longer show a (?) next to those terms.

Version 1.8.10a

Actually including the right file this time so the fix described in the notes works.
New German translation updates.

Version 1.8.10b

New Russian and Simplified Chinese translation updates.

Version 1.8.9

Items that an Eye of the Black Prince can be applied to (Sha-Touched weapons from Heart of Fear and Terrace of Eternal Spring, Level 502 Blacksmithing weapons, and weapons that drop in Throne of Thunder) will be valued assuming that you add the socket to that weapon. Weapons from heroic scenarios and Siege of Orgrimmar will not. (Previously only Sha-Touched weapons were correctly being valued in this way.)
Made a few adjustments to try to better handle chest armor that is classified as "robes" by the game.
Minor changes for patch 5.4.

Version 1.8.8

Fixed some issues with upgrade displays showing incorrect information for wands.
Fixed some issues with upgrade displays showing incorrect information for characters that don't save healing gear but still have a healing scale enabled.

Version 1.8.7

Pawn will now no longer show any weapons other than daggers as upgrades for assassination rogues when using the default Wowhead scales.
Fixed a rare bug that could occur with quests such as Returned Sevenfold that include both a choice of rewards and some guaranteed rewards, where Pawn could incorrectly display upgrade symbols that were intended for the guaranteed rewards on the icons for the reward choices.
Fixed a problem that appears to be new for patch 5.3 where inspecting another player that you're not also targeting would not calculate an average item level for that player's equipment.

Version 1.8.6

Adjusted the values of PvP power and PvP resilience on MoP-quality gems to their new (halved) values.
Added Tense Imperial Amethyst.

Version 1.8.5

A few minor changes to work around a rare issue where Pawn would load files in a different order on some machines.

Version 1.8.4

Priests will no longer incorrectly see bows, crossbows, and guns as potential upgrades when using the built-in Wowhead scales.

Version 1.8.3

Sha-touched items from Heart of Fear and Terrace of Eternal Spring (all difficulties) will now always be valued (for base value) as if you've completed Wrathion's Chapter II questline and can add a prismatic socket to the item.
Added a Brailian Portuguese translation. Thanks maxmag!
Includes minor updates to the other translations.
Fixed a couple minor display issues on the Compare tab when one item had sockets and the other did not.
Thunderforged and Heroic Thunderforged items on the English PTR will no longer show (?) on their tooltips.

Version 1.8.2

Fixed a bug in average item level calculations when inspecting hunters. (Their ranged weapons were only getting counted for half the appropriate level.)
The Reforging Advisor will now also show up when you right-click an item while talking to an arcane reforger.

Version 1.8.1

This version of Pawn now includes French support, thanks to translation volunteers othor and Snuff, and an untested Traditional Chinese translation based on work by BNSSNB.
Reduced Pawn's memory usage by about 35% (at least on my PC) by optimizing the way translations are loaded. Pawn's memory usage should return to about where it was back when it was for a single language only.
Corrected a calculation problem where the Ghost Iron Dragonling trinket was undervalued because Pawn suggested Cataclysm cogwheels for it instead of Mists of Pandaria cogwheels. (Thanks durandal42!)
Fixed a minor problem that could occur when using the Compare tab if you used Pawn in the past (or on another computer), then stopped using it, then sold some of your best items, and then started using it again.

Version 1.8

This version of Pawn now works for German and Russian in addition to English. Big thanks to the translation volunteers Sandmahn and mgotovtsev! It also has an untested Simplified Chinese translation based on work by bigbamboo.
This version also contains a large number of changes to prepare for German, Russian, and more languages in the future.
Some now-unnecessary information that was being stored in Pawn's SavedVariables file will now be removed when logging out.
Reorganized the Options tab to make it a bit cleaner. Options for changing the digits of displayed precision for values and for controlling the visibility of (?) icons on tooltips were removed.
Changed a bunch of bits of text throughout Pawn.
Worked around a problem that occurred with Pawn annotations showing up on AtlasLoot items twice. (To show Pawn annotations on AtlasLoot items, click Options in AtlasLoot and then check Use GameTooltip.)
Added support for the Pyrium Weapon Chain and Living Steel Weapon Chain.
Crystals of Fear will now no longer improperly show (?) on their tooltips.

Someone on the Pawn forums also commented that the copy of Pawn that they got from WOWUI Minion was giving them the same problem, and after downloading a fresh copy, everything was fine.

I think I may have had a corrupted install from installing it here at wowinterface. I deleted the copy i had and the savedvariable it had, installed it with the curse client and it works fine now.

Hrrmmmm. Can you try putting an item into Pawn's Compare tab to see what happens there? It would also be helpful if you could type "/pawn debug on", hover over an item, and then do "/pawn debug off" and tell me what sorts of things you see in your chat log. (There will be a lot of spam; just a summary of stuff like if you see a lot of lines saying that Pawn didn't understand something would be helpful.)

I'm playing a warlock, under MyName's scale, i have the Warlock: affliction, demonology, and destructions scales, all are obviously "Show scale in tooltips" selected. Pawn shows no errors, this is the first time i've installed it on this fresh install of wow so it's not a conflict of an old addon, and it also doesn't work when pawn is the only addon enabled .

* Do you have any scales enabled for that character? (You should have at least two enabled by default after upgrading to Pawn 1.3)
* Do you have interface errors enabled? Does Pawn hit any errors?
* Have you tried playing with only Pawn enabled and no other mods?

Absolutely. It's back down to about 500kb. Which is where is sat before. Thanks again!

Pawn uses memory for two things, primarily: holding your scales, and caching data so that it doesn't have to recalculate things as often. Removing the Wowhead scales will reduce the memory used by both of those things. Without the cache, though, Pawn would take up more of your processor's time, which is way, way worse than taking up a tenth of a percent of your computer's memory.
Thanks! This worked great.

I have observed a few times a problem where the gems on the Gems tab no longer get hover effects, but I haven't noticed any problems with the scales list before. Both of those are scrollable regions; perhaps that fact and/or the fact that you were in combat are related.

It is now working as expected. I too have no idea what caused the earlier issue. No errors were tossed. The addons that I have with functions that relate to Pawn are pretty standard fair.

RatingBuster
EquipCompare

I was in the middle of a raid when the clicking issue occurred. Not in combat, but still in a raid zone. I'll keep a look out and post if the issue returns.

Thanks for the addon!
