Pawn  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0.5
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.

Pawn 2.0 only works on World of Warcraft 7.0, the Legion prepatch. If WoW 7.0 hasn't launched in your region, make sure that you're still using Pawn 1.9.x.

Version 2.0.5

Pawn will now show "your best" and "your second best" on tooltips of equipped rings and dual-wielded weapons when using the default settings.
When the item on the left side of the Compare tab is better, its upgrade arrow will now be green like all other upgrade arrows in Pawn.

Version 2.0.4

By popular demand, the Ignore Valor and Baleful Upgrades option has returned. It's on by default, but you can turn it off to better compare new gear.
I'll wait to remove this option until Legion actually launches.
A few more translation updates for Russian.

Version 2.0.3

Made a hopefully-better fix for the problems on the Russian version of WoW.
Updated translation for Russian.

Version 2.0.2

Fixed a bug where one-handed weapons would appear to be upgrades for dual-wielding characters far too often.
Hopefully fixed a problem where numbers 1,000 and up were being calculated incorrectly in the Russian version of WoW.
Updated translations for Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

Version 2.0.1

Adjusted the value of gems to account for a difference in the values of Draenor gems on the live version of the patch versus what they had on beta.
Increased the item level threshold at which Pawn will start suggesting that you use Legion gems so that you shouldn't see that happen on your Mythic Hellfire Citadel gear. (Looks at own gear and weeps softly)
Updated translations for Spanish and Italian.

Version 2.0

New features and big changes

By default, Pawn will now automatically make suggestions based on your current spec and nothing else, and it will automatically switch its suggestions whenever you change specs. If you prefer to show multiple specs on your tooltips and customize them, just go to the Scale tab and switch to Manual.
To keep things simple, when deciding whether a new item is an upgrade, Pawn will now just compare it against what you currently have equipped. This should be more straightforward now that gear works for all specs, and better mimics the way that other RPGs with similar features (like Diablo) work. You can return to the previous Pawn behavior if you prefer by switching to Manual mode on the Scale tab, and then checking "track for each scale" on the Options tab.
All of the built-in scales have been rebuilt from scratch. For now, the stat values are simplified and are not coming from Wowhead, but I expect to resume getting expert advice from them in the coming weeks.
Please report any bugs you find with incorrect item types marked as not being usable, and so on!

Other less exciting stuff

This version now supports all of the languages that Pawn 1.9 supported—special thanks to the Pawn translation volunteers!
Not all translations are complete yet, but if you do notice something completely broken, please let me know what, and which language.
The Pawn UI visuals have now been slightly tainted by the Fel.
Pawn will now show spec icons on your tooltips (only for default scales), which should make them easier to find and tell apart. You can turn this off on the Options tab.
Built-in scales that are designed for only your current class will no longer show the class name on item tooltips. For example, "Havoc: +14% upgrade" instead of "Demon Hunter: Havoc: +14% upgrade".
Pawn's gem database has been fully updated to account for the stat changes in patch 7.0.
To keep the suggestions manageable, Pawn will no longer consider multi-stat (green, orange, or purple) gems on low-level items.
The Gems tab has been simplified, and will no longer show each gem three times (under red, yellow, and blue gems).
The "Defaults" button on the Scale tab has been removed. A new "Template" button has been added, which creates a more useful scale to start from for your current spec.
Pawn's Socketing Advisor now gives a full list of gems when you have Automatic mode enabled (which is the default).
Pawn's features for assuming that you'll use Valor and Baleful tokens to upgrade your items have been removed.
Removed support for Bonus Armor, Spirit, Multistrike, Spell Power, and colored sockets, as those stats have been removed from the game.
Removed support for meta sockets, PvP Resilience, and PvP Power, as those stats are not relevant on any current gear (though they do still exist in-game, such as on the Dreadful Gladiator sets).
Dodge and Parry on low-level items and tank heirlooms will now be interpreted as if it were Stamina.
Attack Power on low-level items will now be interpreted as if it were Strength or Agility, whichever your scale values most.
I expect that for most players, Pawn's memory usage will decline significantly.

Bug fixes and minor tweaks for 7.0

I improved the "getting started" text that probably nobody reads. Now it'll take even less time for people to not read it.
The Pawn UI now opens to the Compare tab by default (except the first time you open it).
Fixed a rare division by zero error that could occur when wearing cosmetic armor with no stats.

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.
