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.

Pawn shows mage values for my monk.

@VgerAN - Thanks! I was blind not to notice the checkbox at the bottom and "Show scale in tooltip". I looked all over inside options tabs and not at the main screen That was a great tip, I already removed unneeded scales from my other characters as well, which I had no idea that it was doable untill now..

----
Hi, my monk is 30 atm and at some point I've noticed that Pawn shows values for all 3 Mage specs in tooltip along with Monk specs. I've searched options and I can't see way to detach mage scales from tooltip. Here's what it looks like.
And just in case you might wonder, the character IS a monk, not mage

Ah, good call; thanks! I don't think that French has received as much testing as some other languages, so let me know here, on Curse, or on Facebook if you run into any issues (namely the (?) symbol appearing on items next to perfectly normal stats), and I'll make sure that I or the French translator gets it fixed up.

Thanks in advance.

Glad you like it! Thanks for the bug report—I didn't even know you could right-click items to reforge them. Got it fixed in Pawn 1.8.2.

VgerAN, thanks again for such an amazing addon. works wonderful with ask mr. robot, of course, or any stat weighting app. like you said, just make your own custom scales (input your own data), very simple.

i have noticed a small issue when reforging - i tend to right-click the item i have equipped to transfer to the reforge UI. unfortunately pawn's reforging advisor doesn't show up. it does when i left click and drag the item to the open slot. not a big deal at all. just something i noticed.

thanks again!

Hi! To see Ask Mr. Robot's stat weights, go to a page either for your own character or one of the generic characters, like this one:

http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/shamanrestoration

Then, click Edit Weights. There, you can see the stat weights that Ask Mr. Robot is using. To add them to Pawn, open up Pawn from your character sheet and go to the Scale tab. Choose the most appropriate one of the Wowhead scales in the list (as in, "Shaman: restoration"), and then click Copy. Give your new scale a name.

Now you have a scale (list of stat weights) that you can work with on the Values tab. Copy the stat weights from Ask Mr. Robot to Pawn. If there are any leftover values in Pawn that didn't come from the stats you added from Ask Mr. Robot, you can remove them with the Remove button. (For example, if the Wowhead scale you copied listed one crappy stat with a value of 13, but it didn't show up in the Ask Mr. Robot weights at all, be sure to remove it, or otherwise that crappy stat will become your best stat because Ask Mr. Robot weights usually only go up to 1.)

The reason I suggest starting with a Wowhead scale and not a blank one is that I already set those up to ignore weapons and armor that your class/spec can't use. But you can also start with a totally blank scale if you find that easier.

Mistweaver Monk - Offhand Weapon unusable?

Hello,

New to the "mistweaver" spec, so forgive me if there's an "obvious" reason for this, but........

I just noticed that the default scale for Mistweaver Monks has "Offhand Weapon" flagged as unusable.

I'm not sure if this was intentional, so I wanted to point it out.

Thanks,
Eddy

Re: 2-hand vs 1-hand + off-hand

Hi! Yes, manually adding the raw values of your two one-handers and comparing them against the value of your two-hander is the appropriate thing to do. I'm still planning on developing some features in the future to make this process a little better.

If you'd like, you can see the raw values directly on the item tooltips (in addition to the Compare tab) by selecting the "show item values and upgrade %" option on the Options tab. I usually keep that option on, though you might find that it is a little too much extra clutter.

2-hand vs 1-hand + off-hand

Hey all!

My main is a warlock who can (obviously) use a 2-hander or a 1-hand plus off-hand.
I'd like to know if I can use Pawn to see which is the better option?

I'm still leveling at the moment - but would like to see at a glance which is the better to equip especially when running dungeons. Am I right in thinking that just adding the total numbers for the 2 separates that show up at the bottom of the tool-tip can be compared with the number for the 2-hander?

I also tried dragging the 2-hander into one of the Compare slot - but there doesn't seem to be an option to drag the separates to the other side?

Help appreciated

(Oh, and thank you for a very nice add-on!)

Hi! I'd never used that feature before, haha. I think at some point the guy who makes Outfitter told me about it.

On my characters, it looks like Outfitter lists the scales that are currently visible. Do you have Holy and Discipline hidden in Pawn? You might need to find them in Pawn's list and shift-click them to get them to show up in Outfitter. If that doesn't help then you will probably have better luck if you ask the creator of Outfitter.

Question Priest Holy

I'm utilizing Outfitter 5.6.1 and Pawn (most recent but not the alpha) on my Priest. In the Rebuild for... menu I only have an option for Shadow spec. Would you know why the other two aren't showing?

Hi! Thanks for the report. Pawn doesn't interact with the world map. There's are a few unfortunate bugs in WoW right now are generating false errors like that. (Well they're real errors, but they're falsely attributed to addons. The glyph UI has a bug and the inspect UI has a bug, at the very least.) There's unfortunately no way to work around it other than occasionally doing a /reload. The addon that will be reported as causing the error will be whichever one happens to do something first after hitting the bug in WoW, so it's possible that you'll get a different-looking error after that.
