Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.15
by: VgerAN [More]

Pawn helps you find upgrades for your gear and tell which of two items is better for your spec. Start with built-in advice from Ask Mr. Robot, or customize Pawn's stat weights to have it suggest items based on your favorite class guide or simulator. Pawn can help you decide whether it's better to use the cloak with 500 mastery or the one with 450 crit—whether you're just starting out, or you're an advanced player who plans out gear upgrades and regularly simulates and evaluates performance.

Language support

Pawn works with English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish (European and Latin American), Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. Unlike most addons, Pawn's language has to match the language you play WoW in.

Staying in touch

For fastest assistance with Pawn, 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.

Getting started

If you're new to Pawn, don't worry—Pawn will automatically set itself up to give you advice based on math done by the experts at Ask Mr. Robot. Just watch for Pawn's green arrows. If you decide you want to go further, there are a lot of ways that you can customize Pawn, by tracking multiple specs at once, importing custom stat weights, and more.

Found a bug?

If you think you might have found a bug, just leave a comment here. In addition to a description of the problem, please make sure to include: (1) the language that you use Pawn and WoW in, (2) the specific items that don't work as expected, and (3) your class and spec if you're using the built-in (not custom) stat weights. Screenshots are usually very helpful as well.

Version 2.2.15

Added a fix to make Pawn compatible with the German version of WoW 7.3.2 courtesy of Salty from Curse.

Version 2.2.14

Pawn will now suggest blue-quality gems on heroic Tomb of Sargeras gear or better, and the epic-quality gems on heroic Antorus gear.
Translation updates for German courtesy of Salty from Curse.
(Version 2.2.14a) Translation updates for French courtesy of Kangourousse from Curse.

Version 2.2.13

More language updates for WoW patch 7.3. (If I do four of these updates I get a special cache full of epics.)

Version 2.2.12

Fixed a problem introduced by WoW patch 7.3 that caused Pawn to not work properly in the Spanish (Spain) version of WoW.
More updates for WoW patch 7.3.

Version 2.2.11

Updates for compatibility with WoW patch 7.3.

Version 2.2.10

Added a compatibility fix for AethysRotation and other addons that scan your artifacts while you're logging in.

Version 2.2.9

Stat weights for all classes and specs have been updated based on hotfixes, balance changes, and new simulations.
Pawn will now suggest blue-quality gems only on items that are higher than level 900.

Version 2.2.8

Added new guidance and stat weights for all classes and specs to account for changes in WoW patch 7.2.5. The new weights are optimized for Mythic Keystone dungeons a higher gear level (870) than in previous versions of Pawn, given how quickly one can gear up alts currently.
In addition, the new weights for Assassination Rogues now assume that you use Master Poisoner.
Fixed a problem in Korean WoW that was introduced in 2.2.7.
Additional changes to French support to improve performance for players in all languages.
Lots of translation updates for Portuguese courtesy of Pawn fan tiagopl. (No updates for other languages in this update.)

Version 2.2.7

Pawn is now compatible with the French version of WoW patch 7.2.5.

Version 2.2.6

Pawn will now wait to start suggesting relics for the third slot of your artifact until you've actually unlocked it. (I thought it would be helpful for collecting a relic before you finish the questline, but it's proven to be annoying and misleading in practice.)

Version 2.2.5

Made a change to try to improve integration with Bagnon.

Version 2.2.4

Fixed a bug in Pawn where for some low-level characters, Pawn wouldn't recognize that one of your artifact's relic slots was locked, and would suggest relics for that slot.

Version 2.2.3

English: Fixed a problem where the Survival Hunter artifact Talonclaw didn't ever show relic upgrades. (It's possible that this problem exists for other artifacts—it would occur any time that the artifact had a different name on the item tooltip versus the shift-right-click artifact pane.)

Version 2.2.2

Worked around a game bug where WoW was saying that BoE relics looted at level 110 and then passed to lower-level characters would get fewer ilvls from that relic than they actually would.
Some other addons simulate shift-right-clicking on your artifact at logon to get information about it. This caused Pawn to sometimes receive incorrect information about your artifact, which would cause it to overestimate how much of an item level upgrade a relic would be. Pawn will now detect when this is happening and ignore the bad information it received.
Russian: Includes translations for new relic features.

Version 2.2.1

Fixed a bug in Pawn 2.2 where items in a player's bags that required a higher player level and couldn't be equipped were still getting green arrows.
Pawn will no longer work with WoW 7.1.5.
English: Relics that give a single level increase will now say "+1 level" instead of "+1 levels".
Russian: Hopefully fixed some of the catastrophic problems that started occurring with patch 7.2.
Italian: Includes translations for new relic features.

Version 2.2

Includes fixes for compatibility with WoW patch 7.2.
Pawn will now highlight relics that are an item level upgrade to one or more of your artifacts. Note that this upgrade feature is completely separate from Pawn's existing upgrade features—it's based on item level increase, not stats, and your custom scales are not used in any way.
This feature won't work until after you shift-right-click your artifacts. You only have to do that once (for each artifact) after upgrading to Pawn 2.2.
This feature will work for all of your artifacts regardless of which spec you're in.
Top-tier players who want to min/max specific artifact traits rather than focusing purely on their artifact's item level may want to turn this feature off—see Pawn's Options tab to do so.
Pawn will now suggest the cheap 100-stat gems on more items.

Thanks for the report and the extra details. The typo that caused this is fixed in Pawn 1.3.11, so pick that up as soon as it's approved and you should be good to go!

This problem would occur for staves and polearms (weapons that only have two-handed versions) for any class that can't also equip two-handed axes, maces, and swords (everyone except warriors). I unfortunately didn't catch it because I do most of my testing on my bank alt... who is a warrior.

For some reason Pawn is not showing any values in tooltip for staffs for my mage. Using default arcane and fire scales, and on values tab Staff does not have that (unusable) text after it, so it should show me the values in tooltip.

-- Did some testing of my own:

I took a copy of the default arcane scale, took the (unusable) away from Sword: 2H and i can see the copied scale on tooltip.
The staffs i tested this are Engraved Gargoyle Femur and Unspeakable Secret.
So there might be something wrong in weapon types or something?

This is one of my "must-have" addons, thanks for keeping it up to date!

Alrighty, more new goodness in Pawn 1.3.10. I'm now 99% sure that I've fixed that accursed issue with some people not being able to select scales. I SWEAR. Also, now you don't have to see item values on items that you can't equip -- for example, priests don't see values for priest scales on shields, even if it's a caster shield, because priests can't hold shields.

Thanks for the report; I haven't seen this yet. What items and enchantments are you hovering over? Are they low-level +damage enchantments? (Or can I just get an Armory link?) And, do you still run into this problem if Pawn is the only add-on enabled for your character?

Chat spam

I keep getting spammed with : "Weapon with mismatched or missing speed and damage stats was not converted to DPS" any time Mouse over my weapons. They are enchanted and it doesn't matter if I"m in my elemental or resto spec on my shammy this keeps happening.


Not sure why as I've never seen it until the upgrade of code today.

There are no ui errors either.

Okay. Yeah, wands is probably your best bet for now, then, if you don't want to go through and move decimal points on all the stats. The Wowhead scales only have a few stats on them, though, so just changing all of the 71s to .71s would probably be easier in the long run than adding points to Wands and keeping them in sync.

What are you using to come up with your scales? Is it feasible to just divide all of your numbers by 100?

That's exactly what I want to do.

It really sounds like you just want an un-normalized scale...
I want them normalised so I don't have to look at 4 or 5 digit numbers.


If it's too much trouble I guess I'll just keep putting dummy values in wands.

thanks a lot ! always used and loved the mod for years...would be one of the last ones I'd turn off. Unfortunately I can't give you help with performance-tweaks, I'm such a bad coder. Maybe it helps if you have a look in some similar mods like WeightsWatcher.

Sry for complaining a lot and thanks again.

I've posted Pawn 1.3.6, which includes a bunch of performance enhancements. On my computer it shaves about 2 seconds off of the time it takes me to log in, and on particularly old computers it may speed things up even more. Overall, about 95% of the login time Pawn was responsible for has been eliminated, and there are speed improvements in the 5-10% range in various other places too.

I've got a couple more performance enhancements in mind for a later version, but this one's a big one so I wanted to get it out sooner rather than later.

I've published an update that includes some changes to make Pawn easier for new users, and also adds untested support for mastery rating for people in the Cataclysm beta.
