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.

Pawn 1.1.5, just posted, lets feral druids and deathknights value base armor and bonus armor separately if they so desire. I haven't done anything interesting with feral attack power in this version; if you want to use your scales on the 3.0.8 PTR you'll need to increase the value of your DPS stat, because feral attack power as an item stat doesn't exist anymore in 3.0.8.

Exclamation Pawn codes!

To everyone thinking about using this addon - Head to the Pawn Forums to see user submitted ratings scales for each class. Or better yet, head there to submit your own!

For those rogues out there, Shadowpanther.net has graciously converted their AEP, MAEP, and Mutilate MAEP ratings into Pawn code.

If you are serious about maximizing your potential, this addon really makes a difference. My goodness, that sounded like a paid advertisement. ROFL

Seriously though, this is one of my favorite addons. I hope everyone finds it as useful as I do!

Thanks VgerAN!

Yep, sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to maybe having new weapon options. When that change happens, Pawn will drop the "Feral AP" stat, and I'll probably make it so that existing scales with feral AP will automatically convert over to the DPS stats. I'll need to see the PTR to be sure, but I'm thinking that the conversion ratio Blizzard will be using will be 14 feral AP : 1 weapon DPS.

Hey VgerAN, just wondering if you're prepared for the change to druid staves? Feral AP will no longer be listed on weapons anymore, but rather be calculated from the DPS of the weapon.

If not, now you know Love the addon

Hi! Thanks for the report. Icewalker will work correctly in the next version of Pawn. Let me know if you find any other new enchantments or items that don't work properly!

Thanks for this mod... I use it all the time.

I noticed that one of the new boot enchants, Icewalker (+12 crit, +12 hit), is not registered. http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=60623

Would be nice of you to state this in the description. I was wondering why it didn't work...

This version is for English only. There is an independent German translation (and a Chinese one too) available at WowUI.IncGamers.com, though I think it may not be updated for 3.0 yet.

(Hmmm, I know I responded to this already, but I don't see my post...)

I checked the beta last night, and the armor penetration on Onslaught Breastplate, Puissant Shadow Crystal, and the enhancement shaman S3 chest all seemed to work just fine. Can you give an example of what you mean?

Pawn 1.1 is here! This version works fully on both the live realms and Wrath of the Lich King. Besides the Wrath compatibility and support for new types of items, the big change in this version is the Compare tab. Right-click on an item link window or an item being rolled for, or hover over an item in someone's inventory and press "]", and Pawn will give you a stat-by-stat breakdown of the two items, and clearly show you which one is better based on your selected scale.

I've posted Pawn 1.1 beta 1 on this site and on CurseForge. Beta 1 is the first fully Wrath-compatible version of Pawn, and fixes all known UI and functionality bugs related to WoW 3.0 and the expansion. Special thanks to everyone who submitted bug reports so problems could be fixed early before I got my key, and a big special thanks to WoWInterface and the admins for getting me into the Wrath beta!
