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

Version: 2.7.13
by: VgerAN [More]

Find upgrades, do more damage, win.

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.

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 (or, on Classic, HawsJon). 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.

Language support

Pawn now works with all languages on both live/retail and Classic. It's possible that you might run into stats that Pawn doesn't recognize from time to time when playing on non-English clients—if you think that Pawn's not calculating something right, put an item into the Compare tab and see if it lists all of the stats there. If something's missing, let me know which item and which language, and I should be able to get it fixed!

Staying in touch

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. (I typically respond to questions much more quickly on Facebook or Curse.)

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) whether it's live/retail or Classic, (3) the specific items that don't work as expected, and (4) your class and spec if you're using the built-in (not custom) stat weights. Screenshots are usually very helpful as well.

Incompatible with...

Pawn will not work with Titan Panel Artifact Power or Combat Numbers Separator. Those addons change item tooltips and will cause Pawn to give bad advice. It's also been reported that using Pawn with TradeSkillMaster can cause the game to crash or hang.

Version 2.7.13

Dragonflight: Pawn will no longer suggest socketing gems into items from the Shadowlands, unless you turn off the "Ignore sockets on low-level items" option. Onto the Dragon Isles!

Version 2.7.12

Dragonflight: Fixed another error that could occur in 10.0.2 when using Pawn-compatible bag addons while Pawn's bag advisor is OFF. (When that option is off, and a bag addon asks Pawn for help finding upgrades, Pawn just asks the game what it would have done. But the game removed its bag upgrade code in 10.0.2 so Pawn was freaking out.)

Version 2.7.11

Dragonflight: Yet another change to work with Pawn-compatible bag addons (thanks Merathilis!).

Version 2.7.10

Dragonflight: Additional fixes for Pawn-compatible bag addons (thanks Caedis!).
Dragonflight: Fixed a bug I introduced in 2.7.9 that would cause your chat window to be filled with messages like "nil nil" if you were using a Pawn-compatible bag addon.
Dragonflight: Fixed a problem that was preventing the "Equipped" shortcut buttons on Pawn's Compare tab from working after 10.0.2.

Version 2.7.9

Dragonflight: In 10.0.2, Blizzard deleted the code for the game's built-in bag arrows. For now, green arrows in your bags won't work unless you have a Pawn-compatible bag addon installed. You can still see upgrade advice when you hover over the item, just not on the item's icon itself.
This version includes an update so that Pawn-compatible bag addons will work again.
I'm as confused as you are.
Dragonflight: Evokers in the starting zone who haven't chosen a spec will now see Devastation advice when in Automatic mode instead of Preservation. (It doesn't really matter right now because both of those scales are placeholders for the time being.)

Version 2.7.8

Dragonflight: Pawn's keybindings will now once again show up in the keybindings list without having to search for them by name.
Dragonflight: Pawn now knows about the new gems from the Dragon Isles, but it won't suggest them until you start getting gear from there.
Wrath of the Lich King Classic and Burning Crusade Classic: Fixed an error that would occur when socketing an item when using a custom scale for which there are three or more colored gems that have exactly the same value.

Version 2.7.7

Dragonflight: Updated to work with changes made to the game's comparison tooltips on the 10.0.2 PTR and beta.
Dragonflight: Fixed the error that would occur when clicking the Pawn button in the Interface Options window.
Adds support for a future version of Ace3's configuration window.

Version 2.7.6

All Classic versions: Pawn will not provide upgrade information to bag addons for now, to resolve some extreme performance issues that some players are having. (I hope to let bag addons on Classic versions add green arrows like you get on modern WoW again in the future!)

Version 2.7.5

German Wrath of the Lich King Classic: Added support for additional items with armor penetration rating.

Version 2.7.4

Dragonflight: The bag upgrade advisor (Pawn taking over the green arrows in your bags) now works with all styles of bags.
Dragonflight: Fixed a problem where sometimes you couldn't right-click on items in your bags to use them.

Version 2.7.3

Fixed a harmless error that could occur when selling certain unusual types of items, such as caged battle pets.
Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King Classic: Fixed a problem where socket bonuses were sometimes being ignored in the advice given by the socketing advisor. (The item's values and upgrade %s were, however, not affected—just the shift-right-click window.)
Dragonflight: Pawn now annotates the tooltip when hovering over the item to be crafted in the professions UI, so you'll see upgrade information (and item scores if enabled) when you hover.
Russian Wrath of the Lich King Classic: Added support for additional items with armor penetration rating.

Version 2.7.2

Dragonflight: The bag upgrade advisor (Pawn taking over the green arrows in your bags) now works with the classic (non-combined) bags in WoW 10.0. (Thanks Triadian!)
Simplified Chinese Wrath of the Lich King Classic: Added support for additional items with parry rating.

Version 2.7.1

Dragonflight: Fixed a problem where Pawn would display an error when evaluating armor for evokers.

Version 2.7

Dragonflight: Pawn now works on the Dragonflight beta and the WoW 10.0 PTR. Stat weights for evokers are placeholders.
Shadowlands and Dragonflight: Fixed a problem where new characters (before level 10) could show item advice for blood death knights or another seemingly random spec when in Automatic mode.
Wrath of the Lich King Classic: Northrend awaits! Pawn will no longer suggest that you put gems in your Burning Crusade items, unless you've turned off the "Ignore sockets on low-level items" option that's on by default. With the option on, Pawn will start suggesting you socket gems again when you start getting level 187 gear (about level 78).
English Classic versions: Added support for a few items that add armor penetration rating in an unusual way.

Thanks; I was hoping that would be/become the case!

Good news.

If it helps you any, the Classic PTR is running the same client version as the BC Classic beta since last week.

Re: Pawn suggesting Agility only sword for Monk Healspec

Hmmm, it seems reasonable to me: none of those weapons are that good for healing, so the best one out of those three for your healing spec is one with decent secondary stats and a socket. Right now Pawn is just comparing the new sword with the ones you have equipped.

1) If you want to change Pawn to try to track your best items for each spec and show you upgrades even over items you don't have equipped, you can choose the "Track for each scale (advanced)" option. It works best if you keep gear for your different specs in equipment sets, but it'll try to remember what you have no matter what.

2) If you want to hide scales from your tooltips (like the built-in Mistweaver scale, since you're using a custom one now), just shift-click the scale in the list in Pawn. (Or, select it, and then uncheck "show this scale in tooltips" on the Scales tab.)

In the screenshot, I'm hovering over it, and have my other two weapons highlighted.

Hi! Yeah, that's something that I definitely would like Pawn to be smarter about. Right now there unfortunately isn't a workaround other than just ignoring the false "upgrade" notices.

It's always been a problem in some fashion, but until a few years ago it was pretty much just limited to garbage green rings that you wouldn't use for long anyway, so I never got around to it. Now that items can randomly drop with sockets or bonus stats or higher item levels, it's a problem that can affect everyone even at max level.

Hi there!

Is it possible for Pawn to detect that I'm already wearing a unique-equipped ring that I have another copy of in my bags? The one I'm wearing has a socket, is the same ilevel, with the same stats. Pawn's insisting that the one in my bags is a 98% upgrade. I presume because it thinks the one in my bag is better than the *other* one I'm wearing. But I can't equip it.

Here is an album with two screenshots: first one shows the tooltip for the Smuggler's Cove ring in my bag, second one shows the Smuggler's Cove ring I have equipped.

I'll note that the one I'm wearing is also my lowest ilvl item,

Thanks for posting this here - I like to know the results of things like this, and I don't use facebook, so knowing it was resolved (even if I didn't see it) is good enough!

Hey—are you using the Zygor addon? Pawn doesn't have a button like that, but I remember getting the same question a while back, and I don't remember for sure which addon it was.

When you're looking at the comments page, just above the top comment, is the Post Reply button. To the right of that - sometimes immediately to the right, sometimes more centered - is a Comment Options dropdown.

An option on that dropdown - usually the last on the list - is Add To Email Feed.

If you click that, you'll get email whenever a comment is made by anyone on that page.
