Pawn  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.11
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 2.2.11

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.

Re: Features

You can compare items that aren't in your bag using key bindings. By default, Pawn will try to take over the left bracket [ as the "put this item in the left slot" key, and right bracket ] as the right-slot key. So you can, for example, browse through AtlasLoot, hover over an item you want, and press the right bracket, and Pawn will show you the stat differences between it and the item of the same type that you're already using. You can customize the key bindings in the usual place.

Pawn doesn't really know or care about your class or your spec (nothing personal), so more... dynamic behavior isn't really available. But, many of the top simulators, such as Rawr, let you create scales closely customized for your character, spec, play style, and gear that you can put into Pawn. For more information, crack open the Readme file in the Pawn addon folder, and search for "Rawr."

Features

Overall great addon thanks VgerAN.

Is it possible for PAWN to compare items that are not in my bag yet? (like before loot or even from AtlasLoot). Maybe to allow add item to compare by SHIFT-Click that item instead of draging it?

Another feature is being able to compare stats with the kind of talent points I have in the key talents instead of a fixed weight system. I know this is a lot more work but it hope in the future this feature is considered.

Again thanks.

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.
