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.)

Hi! Shift-click the mage scales (or click them and then uncheck "show this scale in tooltips" at the bottom of the list) to get rid of them. If you only care about one or two monk specs you can get rid of those the same way.

Pawn shows mage values for my monk.

@VgerAN - Thanks! I was blind not to notice the checkbox at the bottom and "Show scale in tooltip". I looked all over inside options tabs and not at the main screen That was a great tip, I already removed unneeded scales from my other characters as well, which I had no idea that it was doable untill now..

----
Hi, my monk is 30 atm and at some point I've noticed that Pawn shows values for all 3 Mage specs in tooltip along with Monk specs. I've searched options and I can't see way to detach mage scales from tooltip. Here's what it looks like.
And just in case you might wonder, the character IS a monk, not mage

Ah, good call; thanks! I don't think that French has received as much testing as some other languages, so let me know here, on Curse, or on Facebook if you run into any issues (namely the (?) symbol appearing on items next to perfectly normal stats), and I'll make sure that I or the French translator gets it fixed up.

Glad you like it! Thanks for the bug report—I didn't even know you could right-click items to reforge them. Got it fixed in Pawn 1.8.2.

VgerAN, thanks again for such an amazing addon. works wonderful with ask mr. robot, of course, or any stat weighting app. like you said, just make your own custom scales (input your own data), very simple.

i have noticed a small issue when reforging - i tend to right-click the item i have equipped to transfer to the reforge UI. unfortunately pawn's reforging advisor doesn't show up. it does when i left click and drag the item to the open slot. not a big deal at all. just something i noticed.

thanks again!

Hi! To see Ask Mr. Robot's stat weights, go to a page either for your own character or one of the generic characters, like this one:

http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/shamanrestoration

Then, click Edit Weights. There, you can see the stat weights that Ask Mr. Robot is using. To add them to Pawn, open up Pawn from your character sheet and go to the Scale tab. Choose the most appropriate one of the Wowhead scales in the list (as in, "Shaman: restoration"), and then click Copy. Give your new scale a name.

Now you have a scale (list of stat weights) that you can work with on the Values tab. Copy the stat weights from Ask Mr. Robot to Pawn. If there are any leftover values in Pawn that didn't come from the stats you added from Ask Mr. Robot, you can remove them with the Remove button. (For example, if the Wowhead scale you copied listed one crappy stat with a value of 13, but it didn't show up in the Ask Mr. Robot weights at all, be sure to remove it, or otherwise that crappy stat will become your best stat because Ask Mr. Robot weights usually only go up to 1.)

The reason I suggest starting with a Wowhead scale and not a blank one is that I already set those up to ignore weapons and armor that your class/spec can't use. But you can also start with a totally blank scale if you find that easier.

Mistweaver Monk - Offhand Weapon unusable?

Hello,

New to the "mistweaver" spec, so forgive me if there's an "obvious" reason for this, but........

I just noticed that the default scale for Mistweaver Monks has "Offhand Weapon" flagged as unusable.

I'm not sure if this was intentional, so I wanted to point it out.

Thanks,
Eddy

Re: 2-hand vs 1-hand + off-hand

Hi! Yes, manually adding the raw values of your two one-handers and comparing them against the value of your two-hander is the appropriate thing to do. I'm still planning on developing some features in the future to make this process a little better.

If you'd like, you can see the raw values directly on the item tooltips (in addition to the Compare tab) by selecting the "show item values and upgrade %" option on the Options tab. I usually keep that option on, though you might find that it is a little too much extra clutter.

2-hand vs 1-hand + off-hand

Hey all!

My main is a warlock who can (obviously) use a 2-hander or a 1-hand plus off-hand.
I'd like to know if I can use Pawn to see which is the better option?

I'm still leveling at the moment - but would like to see at a glance which is the better to equip especially when running dungeons. Am I right in thinking that just adding the total numbers for the 2 separates that show up at the bottom of the tool-tip can be compared with the number for the 2-hander?

I also tried dragging the 2-hander into one of the Compare slot - but there doesn't seem to be an option to drag the separates to the other side?

Help appreciated

(Oh, and thank you for a very nice add-on!)

Hi! I'd never used that feature before, haha. I think at some point the guy who makes Outfitter told me about it.

On my characters, it looks like Outfitter lists the scales that are currently visible. Do you have Holy and Discipline hidden in Pawn? You might need to find them in Pawn's list and shift-click them to get them to show up in Outfitter. If that doesn't help then you will probably have better luck if you ask the creator of Outfitter.

Question Priest Holy

I'm utilizing Outfitter 5.6.1 and Pawn (most recent but not the alpha) on my Priest. In the Rebuild for... menu I only have an option for Shadow spec. Would you know why the other two aren't showing?
