Pawn  Updated less than 3 days ago!  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.

LOL - The mystery deepens...
Now, without having done anything at all, after the patch that crashed just about every other addon, Pawn, wich I haven't even updated to April 14 release yet, suddenly works for the hunter again, even after getting some of my other addons back to work with minor updates.
This is the sort of things that makes me have to pick up my jaw from the floor.

That's indeed strange. Someone on Curse also reported something pretty similar and I ran out of ideas of things to suggest—if you've deleted the Pawn SavedVariables for that character and the problem still occurs, you've covered just about everything I could suggest. Can you try disabling all of your other mods and just running Pawn and see if that affects things? It's unlikely to make a difference since it works just fine on your other characters, but just in case, it's worth checking.

Very odd...

I have the strangest experience with Pawn.

I use it on 3 characters, same account, same realm.
All of a sudden, for no particular reason, pawn never shows me the values on one of the characters. The other 2 works fine but not the third one.
And the mystery gets even worse. All three characters use the same addons. None of them uses more or less addons.
Pawn button shows up in the character window as usual but compare tab doesn't work. Debug info doesn't show me much either, just item name and a long line of ..... after them in chat window. But no values according to the scales.
I tried deleting the failing characters savedvariables, still don't work. Tried deleting the scales and redo them, still nothing, not even the pawn default scale. I even tried coying savedvariables and scales from the characters that Pawn works for... And still nothing. LOL
This is making me so confused... Why would my hunters item tooltips suddenly not show the pawn values when the other 2 characters works just fine.

So you're seeing something other than Feral AP = (DPS - 55) * 14 in your calculations?

If I can get a reliable formula that allows me to calculate an item's feral attack power contribution without relying on the line that druids see on tooltips, I'll probably add the stat back to Pawn. But as it stands, I'm not really comfortable with allowing people to assign values to a stat that only shows up when you're playing a certain class. It's just confusing and weird, and prevents you from properly valuing items when you're on your non-druid characters.

Is there some way instead of a feral AP line we could get one to set a value to the extra line Blizz adds for druids that lists how much AP we get from the DPS conversion? I just crunched some numbers while trying to figure out a weight for it and the DPS->AP conversion's got an ilvl factor in there too. It doesn't vary *hugely* between 226 and 213 (or 213 and 200) but it's definitely there. I don't know if it's even possible to pull the number out of that though since it's not an actual stat per se, haven't actually tried looking at Pawn's code.

It would be nice to mention this in the description so that we don't have to go look or ask in the comments to know that. Or better, it would be great if it was localized .

Thanks, but there's not much I can realistically do with a list of 190 add-ons. I'm going to try to put together a special diagnostic version of Pawn that should help me track down why the game is crashing for some people. I hope to have this ready soon. In the meantime, I still encourage you to send crash reports to Blizzard so they can find and fix their bug. A crashing bug is not directly a bug in a mod, but I might be able to work around the crash.

Actually, there is (or at least was) one. SmartFitter did quite a decent job there (http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=10862) and those are the two features I miss most:

"Get best Set & Equip" function, so you can easily add your 'configuration' to ClosetGnome, Outfitter, whatever. Not needed but definitely nice.
"I do not want more than xyz on that stat"/"I need at least xyz on that stat" Spell hit is very valuable to me, but why should I stack it past the hit cap? Similar: I absolutely *need* to be crit immune, give me at least 540 defense skill (ok, you would have to get the rating that is required, but you get what I mean)!

This version of Pawn is for English only. There are other localized versions that are based on mine and are updated with varying frequency that you can find; I don't know of any hosted here, but Curse and WoWUI.IncGamers have a couple.

Sorry to hear that; a few other people have reported the same issue. Right now there's not much I can do about it, I'm afraid; game crashes are Blizzard's bugs. Please always send crash reports so that they can fix them.
