Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.4
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 2.2.4

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.

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.

Re: But how?

Base armor is armor that gets your bonus, such as leather and cloth. Bonus armor is stuff on trinkets that doesn't get a bonus multiplier. As such, your base armor value should be considerably higher than the bonus armor value, and you shouldn't assign a value to the regular "Armor" stat at all. If you have trouble remembering, double-checking the description of each of the three armor stats should help to clarify things.

The stat that you care about now instead of feral attack power is "DPS" under "Weapon stats." The value you probably want is 14x whatever you assigned to feral attack power in the past.

The terminology used by pawn isn't 100% in line with the terminology used on sites where I find rankings - it makes me nervous ive weighted items incorrectly.

(for example - as a feral bear tank - the whole base armor vs bonus armor thing is important to me - as I understand it, armor on "Leather" and "Cloth" items - including armor from enchants - is multiplied by my base bearform multiplier of 3.6x
Armor on trinkets, rings, necks, weapons is not. How does that map to pawns "Base" vs "bonus" terminology?

No, Pawn doesn't do that, and I am not aware of any mod that does.

It depends on how much work you want to put into it. GearDps appears to not be configurable, so you just install it and you're done. Pawn is built with customization in mind. You can either tweak stat values to your heart's content, or use an item valuation system ("scale") that someone else has carefully crafted, from Elitist Jerks, the WoW forums, or elsewhere. Which one is "better" depends on whether you want something that you can work with to become more and more accurate, or something you want to just "set and forget" even if it isn't as accurate.
