Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.31
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 2.2.31

Fixed a problem that occurred on the Spanish (EU) version of WoW (not the Mexico version or other languages) where items with 1,000 or more of a stat were being evaluated incorrectly.

Version 2.2.30

Includes new, updated stat weights for all classes and specs from Ask Mr. Robot's simulations to give you better, more accurate advice in raids.

Version 2.2.29

Fixes for Brazilian Portuguese.

Version 2.2.28

Pawn will no longer suggest weapon upgrades for mistweaver monks as if they could dual-wield.
Adjusted gem recommendations.

Version 2.2.27

Pawn's relic upgrade features are now disabled by default, and I plan to remove them entirely in a future version.

Version 2.2.26

Items with sockets will now be valued somewhat higher than before, to account for the new gems in Battle for Azeroth jewelcrafting.
Fixed a problem where sometimes you'd get an error when looking at items that your PC hadn't downloaded the stats for yet.

Version 2.2.25

Fixed some more issues with artifact weapon level comparisons (notably, comparing versus the surprisingly crappy weapons you get during the Battle for Lordaeron questline).
Fixed the average item level display on the Inspect window when hovering over the Pawn button.

Version 2.2.24

When comparing an artifact weapon with a non-artifact weapon, Pawn now just shows upgrade arrows based on the item's level. Artifact weapons are complicated, and this seemed like the most helpful and least confusing way to provide guidance.

Version 2.2.23

Fixed a bug where Pawn could skip one of your equipment sets when looking for your best-in-slot gear when the "upgrade comparisons: track for each scale" option was enabled.
Updated artwork.

Version 2.2.22

Pawn will no longer tell you that it's probably not worth your time putting gems in anything below ilvl 800. (I changed the threshold to 153, and I'll change it again when BfA launches.)
Pawn will now show upgrades for your artifact weapons (and off-hands) on all level 110+ characters.
More gem updates in preparation for the Battle for Azeroth jewelcrafting recipes.

Version 2.2.21

New default stat weights for the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch 8.0 for all classes and specs!
Fixed some problems that occurred when the "Upgrade comparisons: Track for each scale" option was selected.

Version 2.2.20

More gem updates for the Battle for Azeroth item level squish.

Version 2.2.19

Updated for WoW 8.0 and the Battle for Azeroth item level squish. Due to item level changes, gem recommendations may be a little strange at lower levels; let me know if you see something that seems very wrong, and let me know which item and gem and the item levels of each.
Stat weights have not been updated since WoW 7.x. They're still the latest from Ask Mr. Robot; most likely it will take a couple of months to account for all of the expansion changes and produce reliable new stat weights.

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.

Hi! If you want Pawn to leave your tooltip borders alone, it's one of the first things on Pawn's Options tab. If you uncheck that option, it shouldn't conflict with your other addons that also try to change the color. (You might want to try a /reload after you change the setting if you don't see an improvement immediately.)

Does that help?

Hi! Unfortunately the green arrows that appear in your bags are actually drawn by the game and are thus a different texture. Those are the smallest ones, and I'm guessing they're the ones that you're referring to. (Pawn just influences when they show up, not the actual appearance.) So for those I don't have any suggestions I'm afraid.

UpgradeArrowBig is the one that's used on quest rewards, when loot drops, and so on. Those are rather big so I'm guessing they aren't a problem.

If you want to make the upgrade arrows that appear on tooltips larger, that's when the regular "UpgradeArrow" gets used. They're sized to be the same height as the text nearby. I *think* you can make them larger by opening up Localization.lua (or the appropriate language file if you're playing in a language other than English) and doing a search-and-replace for "UpgradeArrow:0" and changing it to, say, "UpgradeArrow:25". It'll look a little out of place but should otherwise work.

Let me know if that helps any! Unfortunately I don't have any advice on making the in-bag arrows bigger.

Hi! Right now automatic spec switching is only for Automatic mode, not Manual mode with custom scales. But I've definitely gotten the feedback that some people would like their custom weights to follow their spec as well, so that's something pretty high on the to-do list.

Larger upgrade arrow

I see a texture for a larger upgrade arrow. (UpgradeArrowBig.tga)

Looking in the PawnUI I only see reference made to UpgradeArrowBig.

I'm looking because I'd like to make the upgrade arrow even bigger. (It tends to get hidden where it's not noticeable, for example, to a young son that's reached level 120 without upgrading his legion artifact weapons, or keeping any of the weapon upgrades he's picked up along the way.) (He's upgraded every piece of armor, but not his weapons.)

Is there a way I can get a bigger uprade arrow? (Can I just resize the .tga file maybe?)

Actually, if you've gotten that error more than once, Pawn probably won't work correctly. If you temporarily disable AethysRotation, log on at least once, log out, and then turn AethysRotation back on, it might work better.
