Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.1.8
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 2.1.8

Updated stat weights from Ask Mr. Robot for changes in patch 7.1 and recent hotfixes.

Version 2.1.7

Fixed a mistake I introduced in version 2.1.6 that caused characters to become undying servants of the Lich King if they use Automatic mode (the default), which caused Pawn to not show anything on tooltips, and make it appear as if Pawn thought that your spec was Blood in the Pawn window.

Version 2.1.6

Improved performance in raid groups.

Version 2.1.5

Increased Pawn's memory usage in exchange for faster item scans. (Memory usage should still only be a couple MB, but finding bag upgrades should be much faster.)
Minor translation updates.

Version 2.1.4

Fixed a bug where occasionally Pawn would complain about finding too many "bonus IDs" on items.
Removed the "ignore valor and baleful upgrades" feature, since those items are not relevant anymore.

Version 2.1.3

Updated translations.

Version 2.1.2

The Compare tab will no longer show the differential between the sockets and socket value on the left item versus the right item. (For example, if one item has no socket, and the other has a socket worth 1,250 points, it will no longer show "+1,250".) After this change, the green and red numbers shown will always only be stats, which should make them easier for new people to understand.
Fixed a bug where it was no longer possible to export some scales (generally, scales that were created using the "empty" button or importing, rather than copying an existing scale or starting from a template).

Version 2.1.1

Pawn will now take over the new WoW 7.1 feature that puts green arrows on items in your bags. Normally the feature shows you items that are a higher item level than what you have equipped. Pawn will change the feature so that it shows items that are an upgrade to your currently-equipped gear for any of your active scales. (For example, if you're in the default Automatic mode, it'll put upgrade arrows next to items that are better for your current spec, but not for other specs.)
This feature has no effect on the WoW 7.0 live realms.
If you don't like this, and would rather go back to the old behavior, uncheck "Show bag upgrade advisor" on Pawn's Options tab.

Developer features

These features are primarily useful for people developing guides and simulators.

Pawn scale tags, used with the Import and Export feature on the Scale tab, can now specify a class and spec, such as "Class=Mage, Spec=1".
The spec number in the scale tag is the order in which it displays in the UI. (That spec number is also used internally by the game in a variety of situations.) For example, the specs appear as Arcane, Fire, Frost in the Mage UI, so Arcane is 1, Fire is 2, and Frost is 3.
When class and spec are included in a scale tag, Pawn will automatically add the appropriate list of unusable item types to the scale without having to painstakingly list them all out in the scale tag (IsPolearm = -10000000, etc.).
When scales that have a class and spec associated with them are exported, the resulting scale tag will be smaller than in previous versions. Importing those scales into old versions of Pawn will mostly work okay, but old versions of Pawn will ignore Class and Spec, so there will be subtle differences.

Version 2.1

Pawn's default stat weights now come from Ask Mr. Robot! The existing Wowhead placeholder scales have been removed, and the Ask Mr. Robot scales work automatically in the same was as the previous placeholders, but now have more appropriate and helpful advice for each specialization.
If you'd like advice for more than one spec at once, switch to Manual mode on the Scales tab, and then you can show and hide additional scales from there.
You may notice that items in your bags or bank that weren't upgrades before version 2.1 are now showing up as upgrades—that's to be expected, as some of the new stat weights in this version are vastly different than before.
In the English version, the Values tab has been renamed to Weights, to better match the generally accepted terminology.
The item level display on the Compare tab will no longer show the difference between the two levels ("+15" etc.). I'm hoping that this makes it clearer that the item level isn't used in calculations.
Pawn will no longer add orange diamonds to special effects that it doesn't understand on items. I felt that in modern versions of Pawn, those were just clutter, and didn't really provide useful information.

Thanks for this mod... I use it all the time.

I noticed that one of the new boot enchants, Icewalker (+12 crit, +12 hit), is not registered. http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=60623

Would be nice of you to state this in the description. I was wondering why it didn't work...

This version is for English only. There is an independent German translation (and a Chinese one too) available at WowUI.IncGamers.com, though I think it may not be updated for 3.0 yet.

(Hmmm, I know I responded to this already, but I don't see my post...)

I checked the beta last night, and the armor penetration on Onslaught Breastplate, Puissant Shadow Crystal, and the enhancement shaman S3 chest all seemed to work just fine. Can you give an example of what you mean?

Pawn 1.1 is here! This version works fully on both the live realms and Wrath of the Lich King. Besides the Wrath compatibility and support for new types of items, the big change in this version is the Compare tab. Right-click on an item link window or an item being rolled for, or hover over an item in someone's inventory and press "]", and Pawn will give you a stat-by-stat breakdown of the two items, and clearly show you which one is better based on your selected scale.

I've posted Pawn 1.1 beta 1 on this site and on CurseForge. Beta 1 is the first fully Wrath-compatible version of Pawn, and fixes all known UI and functionality bugs related to WoW 3.0 and the expansion. Special thanks to everyone who submitted bug reports so problems could be fixed early before I got my key, and a big special thanks to WoWInterface and the admins for getting me into the Wrath beta!

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.

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.

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.

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.
