Pawn  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.9.2
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 1.9.2

Continued changes to the starter scales and translations.

Version 1.9.1

Bonus armor is now listed as a separate stat from base armor and can be given a value independently.
Significantly increased the value of armor and bonus armor in the tank starter scales.
Fixed a harmless error where a message about #(Item1.UnknownLines) could appear in the chat log when using the Compare tab.
Fixed a harmless error where a message about being unable to parse the item link could appear in the chat log when hovering over a caged battle pet.

Version 1.9

Updated for WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor. Many features have changed in some way as a result of item changes in patch 6.0.
I updated the visuals for the Pawn UI to be a little more warlordy.
A new set of starter scales have been added for all classes and specs. You can use these scales as you would the old Wowhead scales, and you can also customize them to your heart's content.
The Wowhead scales have been disabled since they haven't been updated for patch 6.0 and would do more harm than good.
The values of Pawn's default scale have changed to be a more appropriate starting point for WoW 6.0.
New stats are recognized and can be assigned values on the Values tab: Bonus Armor, Multistrike, Versatility, Movement Speed, Leech, Avoidance, Indestructible.
Obsolete stats (hit, etc.) are removed from your scales upon logging in, and have been removed from the UI.
All of the new Taladite gems in Warlords of Draenor are now in Pawn's database.
The changes to stats on pre-Draenor gems in Pawn's database have been taken into account for purposes of gem recommendations. (I anticipate that I'll need to do another update of gem stats before the expansion hits.)
A new option has been added, on by default: "Ignore sockets on low-level items." When this option is enabled, Pawn will ignore sockets when calculating values of low-level items (currently, any item below level 463), so they won't have inflated values when Pawn determines upgrades.
Pawn's calculations for item values no longer take reforging potential into account since that feature is gone from the game.
All code for Pawn's Reforge Advisor feature has been removed.
Changed the way that information about your best items for purposes of determining upgrades is stored and processed. (I now use item links instead of item IDs, since in Warlords of Draenor, a mythic version of one item and the raid finder version of the same item might have the same ID but a different bonus suffix.)

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.
