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 1.0.3 should work perfectly with the live realms, and I've tested it on multiple computers. What you're seeing are typical symptoms of an error loading Pawn. Can you try these?

1) First of all, delete your old Pawn folder and retry Pawn 1.0.3. Maybe you had an old file in there somewhere.

2) If you still run into problems, enable "user interface errors" in the Interface Options dialog, log out, and then log back in. You should get an error message on-screen. Let me know what the error message says.

since the update I've got the problem that the pawn-frame in the charmenu falls out of the screen:


if I open the options,set it to the left corner and to the right again it is on the right place until reload.

Actually, scratch that. Try version 1.0.4. I think that I've identified and fixed the problem thanks to another report from Curse.

The individual item values don't get displayed in tooltips and an error about PawnValue being empty occurs. That is in WoltK beta.

Hey, check out the latest Pawn 1.1 alpha. The Pawn 1.0.x versions all fail pretty hard on Wrath. I haven't been able to test on Wrath yet, but 1.1 should at least be much better. You can find the alphas here:

Can you turn on the User Interface Errors option and let me know what errors you get? I need as much of that information as possible to be able to fix problems without actually being able to try it myself.

Thanks for the error report, Miaxi. I've now fixed that (hopefully) in time for alpha 4, which should be available in a few minutes.

The Compare tab is in Pawn 1.1, which is currently in alpha and should progress to a beta release in a few days (depending on when I get my Wrath key!). It works on the live realms if you want to try it out. It's currently only available at CurseForge...

http://wow.curseforge.com/projects/pawn/

...but once it gets to beta I'll start posting it on all the major sites.

Thank you for addressing that.

New alpha version:

No more error and I can scroll through the list and edit the entries but the text still doesn't appear. Also, the converted shadow spelldamage doesn't get recognized.

Thanks for the screenshots; they're really helpful. I'll get the problems with the unrecognized frost and shadow stats fixed for the next alpha, and see what I can do about that invisible text.
