Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.46
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 2.2.46

If you've used an addon to hide item levels from your items, but still have Pawn's "show item level upgrades" option turned on (that's the default), Pawn will now show the item level increase at the bottom of the tooltip instead.
Fixed a problem where Pawn could forget your best items after logging out, if using the "track for each scale (advanced)" feature.

Version 2.2.45

Includes updated stat weights from Ask Mr. Robot for all classes and specs.

Version 2.2.44

Pawn will now show equippable items that are a higher item level than what you currently have as upgrades too, even if they aren't stat upgrades. (You can turn this new behavior off on Pawn's Options tab.)
This feature currently doesn't take Unique-Equipped rings into account. If you happen to equip two different item level copies of the same ring, Pawn could consider both of them your best two rings and thus "forget" about your previous second-best ring.
Some minor performance improvements when logging in.
Fixed a problem where characters with artifacts equipped could get upgrade recommendations for types of items they can't equip, such as wands for death knights.
Fixed a harmless error that appeared when logging in on a Russian client.
Lots of updated German translations, courtesy of SunnySunflow.

Version 2.2.43

Removed a harmless error that would occur when shift-right-clicking Pocket-Sized Computation Device.

Version 2.2.42

Added support for the new 60-stat epic gems from Nazjatar.

That could be interesting, would be to sample your current gear to determine the scale of what you are wearing if it was your ideal gear. For example, for a Leotheras demon phase tanking gear (as a warrior) you want to balance stamina and fire resist, but you only need so much FR to reach the cap, so the relative value of FR vs stamina changes:
stamina: 740
+hp: 150 (~= 13.63 stam with BoK)
stam total: 754 * 2/3 = 503
FR: 339 (reaches the cap with improved MotW)

so the current scale with those two stats is
stam: (503+339)/754 = 1.67
FR: (503+339)/339 = 2.48

With that scale, you can go through any stam heavy or FR heavy items to see if it serves the scale better, reevaluate the resist cap and the scale (post-optimisation process), and try other items.

Another current gear analysis with 3 stats could add the next highest stat in term of item budget (any rating or stat or resist is worth 1, mp5 is worth 2.5, etc).

--------

So what implementing this would imply (beside UI)?
-scan the current gear with item budget array
-merge similar stats (stam with +Health). Maybe more advanced merging would be included, agi/str to AP, or user defined, to account ratio changing buffs, like BoK (modify str/agi/ap/crit rating, and spell crit vs int to some extent)
-sort the stats
-define a scale with the top X (number supplied by the user) merged stats

That's it, that is the feature I am talking about. It would also be useful to discuss your current stat distribution with your current gear instead of talking about your ideally designed stats scale.

--------

I would like to know the feel of the developper about this. Any interest in developping this or letting me doing it in the mod or as a sister mod, or something else entirely.

Howdy. You can check out the "sample scales" file that comes with Pawn (a better version comes with 0.7.3). Also, there's a forum with a lot of user-contributed scales here:
