Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.14a
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 2.2.14

Pawn will now suggest blue-quality gems on heroic Tomb of Sargeras gear or better, and the epic-quality gems on heroic Antorus gear.
Translation updates for German courtesy of Salty from Curse.
(Version 2.2.14a) Translation updates for French courtesy of Kangourousse from Curse.

Version 2.2.13

More language updates for WoW patch 7.3. (If I do four of these updates I get a special cache full of epics.)

Version 2.2.12

Fixed a problem introduced by WoW patch 7.3 that caused Pawn to not work properly in the Spanish (Spain) version of WoW.
More updates for WoW patch 7.3.

Version 2.2.11

Updates for compatibility with WoW patch 7.3.

Version 2.2.10

Added a compatibility fix for AethysRotation and other addons that scan your artifacts while you're logging in.

Version 2.2.9

Stat weights for all classes and specs have been updated based on hotfixes, balance changes, and new simulations.
Pawn will now suggest blue-quality gems only on items that are higher than level 900.

Version 2.2.8

Added new guidance and stat weights for all classes and specs to account for changes in WoW patch 7.2.5. The new weights are optimized for Mythic Keystone dungeons a higher gear level (870) than in previous versions of Pawn, given how quickly one can gear up alts currently.
In addition, the new weights for Assassination Rogues now assume that you use Master Poisoner.
Fixed a problem in Korean WoW that was introduced in 2.2.7.
Additional changes to French support to improve performance for players in all languages.
Lots of translation updates for Portuguese courtesy of Pawn fan tiagopl. (No updates for other languages in this update.)

Version 2.2.7

Pawn is now compatible with the French version of WoW patch 7.2.5.

Version 2.2.6

Pawn will now wait to start suggesting relics for the third slot of your artifact until you've actually unlocked it. (I thought it would be helpful for collecting a relic before you finish the questline, but it's proven to be annoying and misleading in practice.)

Version 2.2.5

Made a change to try to improve integration with Bagnon.

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.

Thanks for the links. I've also noticed that occasionally for me I get overlays on all but the first quest I open in a session. I'm still of course looking to solidify this feature soon.

Sorry for the trouble. I'm still looking into this when I have time and hope to have a fix soon.

I getcha here. I decided that for 1.5 the thing that would probably help the most people to start out would be to have it be based on simply the highest-value item you have in your currently equipped gear and all of your equipment sets. In the future it might be nice to lock a scale to an equipment set and then I can start doing stuff for people like you (and me).

EDIT: Oh, and just in case we're not clear on something, the +XX% upgrades listed on tooltips are based on your best gear out of what you're currently wearing AND all of your equipment sets, not just what you're currently wearing. That number shouldn't be wrong just because you're currently in your PVP boots as long as your equipment sets are stored in the built-in equipment set manager. (In Outfitter, for example, you have to click the little (W) icon to add them to the game's built-in equipment set manager.)

Yes, those overlays are not 100% solid yet. Same problem here.

Difference being: the overlays _only_ disappear from quest loot frame rewards when LootLink (which provides no overlays) is active. Disable that mod & relog the Pawn overlays reappear. 100% reproducible.

Other mods that provide quest loot frame overlays--such as VipQuester & VendorBait--have no issue with LootLink (or themselves).

I receive this message (and a bunch more when I use my keybinds):

Code:

Arrow and Coin icons

I am having trouble with the green upgrade arrow and the coin icons showing up on my wife's pc. She has an exact copy of my addons folder (as that is how I keep her up to date). She has the exact same options set as me, but they will show up on my qst turn ins, but not hers.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance for a great addon!

4) Can you elaborate on this a bit? Do you mean on the Compare tab? At some point I'd like to make the Compare tab accept multiple items at once. At the very least two (so you can compare a staff versus a mace and an off-hand), but possibly whole equipment sets.
The compare tab is great (and that sounds like a cool feature - especially if we could enter levels cap levels (i.e. hitcap, hit<hitcap1, hit>hitcap). If you build it, I'm sure I'll use it.

But, I was thinking the tool tips could map an item to a scale include it as well. If I had 2 scales and 2 Equipment Sets, then I would like to see 3 lines on the tool tip (current, item using first scale compared to item in first equipment set, and 2nd to second.)

It is clearer with an example. Lets say I have 2 scales (ScaleDPS,ScaleTank) and 2 EquipmentSets (SetDPS,SetTank). Currently, if something like boots drop, the tool tip can show the value for both scales but only compares them to what I am currently equipping.

The way it works right now is that the tool tip would give the value for both scales:
ScaleDPS: 110 (+100%) (currently worn value would be 55)
ScaleTank: 20 (-75%) (currently worn value would be 80)

The problem is that lets say I forgot to change out of my pvp boots then I would be getting the wrong info. Today I can easily put on both sets of gear and look at the scales, but I was thinking it could be automated...

Example:
Boots drop
ScaleDPS 110 (+4.76%) (SetDSP.Boot.value = 105)
ScaleTank 20 (-90%) (SetTank.Boot.value = 200)

Getting the output just right would be tricky - lots of information, but what that would tell me right away is this quest item is better in one set and that I should get it. (Actually even at max cap it helped me pick the best badge item to get next - rawr was more accurate, but when I knew I was going to get 4 items, getting the first 1-2 was always the hardest decision...)

That doesn't sound like it's from Pawn. Can you give a little more context?

Yeah, right now there isn't an option to control that. I'll probably add one in the next version. If you like, you can remove that border-coloring feature if you open up Pawn.lua and delete this line from it:

if UpgradeInfo then Tooltip:SetBackdropBorderColor(0, 1, 0) else Tooltip:SetBackdropBorderColor(1, 1, 1) end

Pawn won't change the border color anymore once that line is gone and you reload your UI.

VgerAN, Your latest version of pawn is breaking my ToolTips in TukUI. It's causing tooltips which used to be colored based on their quality (the border) to now just be white for everything.

Thanks for the suggestions!

1, 2) Yep, you'll be able to mark cloth as unusable and still get stats on cloaks in 1.5.2. I'm gonna let it "bake" for another day or so and then release it in time for Tuesday's launch. Then for non-cloth wearers, you can go through and mark everything lower as unusable. I may add an option to do that automatically like you said since I don't want to change the default scales that way directly, as the same scales are used for characters of all levels.

3) Yeah, maybe. But for me, basically any item in my bags that's equippable is one of my best items. It would just be a grid of stars. At least for me, it'd be more useful to see coins on my junk items and an upgrade arrow on my never-yet-equipped upgrades.

4) Can you elaborate on this a bit? Do you mean on the Compare tab? At some point I'd like to make the Compare tab accept multiple items at once. At the very least two (so you can compare a staff versus a mace and an off-hand), but possibly whole equipment sets.

Re: some thanks !!

I likewise love this addon! Excellent work, it is really one of those can't live without addons.

Couple suggestions:

1. In Locallization.lua, change this one line from 1 to 0. This allows leather/mail/plate wearers to mark cloth as unusable. Even though cloaks are clearly cloth, they function more like neck/rings from an itemization point of view nowdays.

Current:
Code:
        {PawnGameConstant(INVTYPE_CLOAK), "IsCloth", 1, PawnMultipleStatsFixed}, -- Back (cloaks are cloth even though they don't list it)
Suggestion
Code:
        {PawnGameConstant(INVTYPE_CLOAK), "IsCloth", 0, PawnMultipleStatsFixed}, -- Back (cloaks are cloth even though they don't list it)
2. Another suggestion along the same lines, for any non-cloth wearer at max level it would be really nice to consider the item unusable it it wasn't the appropriate gear type. I.e. even though a shaman could wear leather, they never would now since the 5% stat bonus is effectively impossible to overcome. (Maybe a global option and/or default).

3. Are the icon overlays possible for bag/bank items? It might be nice to put a small green star on the best item value in a bag for a scale. (Multiple scales could result in multiple stars?) Just a thought.

4. Finally, my most wanted feature would be compare against a different equipment set. I believe that GetEquipmentSetItemIDs could get the job done, with some tweaking to the scale name to allow us to line the set up with the scale. I had played around with the idea a bit and was close before 1.5/4.0.1 came out, but my approach wasn't good enough to contribute back.


Again, Excellent mod, much appreciated!
