Pawn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.8.10
by: VgerAN [More]

Find upgrades, do more damage, win.

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.

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 (or, on Classic, HawsJon). 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.

Language support

Pawn now works with all languages on both live/retail and Classic. It's possible that you might run into stats that Pawn doesn't recognize from time to time when playing on non-English clients—if you think that Pawn's not calculating something right, put an item into the Compare tab and see if it lists all of the stats there. If something's missing, let me know which item and which language, and I should be able to get it fixed!

Staying in touch

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. (I typically respond to questions much more quickly on Facebook or Curse.)

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) whether it's live/retail or Classic, (3) the specific items that don't work as expected, and (4) your class and spec if you're using the built-in (not custom) stat weights. Screenshots are usually very helpful as well.

Incompatible with...

Pawn will not work with Titan Panel Artifact Power or Combat Numbers Separator. Those addons change item tooltips and will cause Pawn to give bad advice. It's also been reported that using Pawn with TradeSkillMaster can cause the game to crash or hang.

Version 2.8.10

Classic Season of Discovery: Added support for the new Gnomeregan items with hit or crit to all attacks. Items with the new hit stat will receive points for your Hit and Hit (Spell) stats, and items with the new crit stat will receive points for your Crit and Crit (Spell) stats.

Version 2.8.9

Dragonflight: Updated stat weights for all classes and specs.
Dragonflight: Updated Pawn's scale color button to work with the new patch 10.2.5 color picker.

Version 2.8.8

Dragonflight: Removed the "Only show upgrades for my best armor type after level 27" option. After level 27, Pawn will now always stop showing items that are not the right type of armor for your class.
Classic: Fixed a bug where Pawn would suggest armor your character can't wear as upgrades.
Classic: Fixed a bug where Pawn would sometimes suggest socketing Glinting Flame Spessarite when it meant to suggest Sovereign Shadow Draenite. This bug potentially affected any time Glinting Flame Spessarite was suggested (such as in the socketing advisor popup), but didn't affect any other calculations or upgrade suggestions.

Version 2.8.7

Classic: Added support for the Classic trade skill and crafting window: hovering over the item icon in that window should now work the same as if the item were already in your bags.

Version 2.8.6

Dragonflight: More new stat weight updates, updated for patch 10.2.0.

Version 2.8.5

Dragonflight: New stat weights have been included for all classes and specs, including all evoker specs, based on the latest Ask Mr. Robot raid simulation data.

Version 2.8.4

To keep things responsive, especially on the slower Classic versions of the game, Pawn has a new system that caps how much processing power it will allow bag addons to use when calculating which items get green upgrade arrows. Roughly speaking, if the game runs at 60 FPS for you, Pawn will block bag addons from reducing that by more than 2 FPS. (This change doesn't affect you if you aren't using a custom bag addon.)

Version 2.8.3

Wrath Classic: The new gems for Content Phase 3 (Cardinal Ruby, etc.) will now show up in recommendations, and will be taken into account when determining the value of sockets on high-level gear.

Version 2.8.2

Dragonflight: Dragonflight 10.1.0 has a game bug that was causing Pawn to show the wrong information on "currently equipped" tooltips. That bug is fixed in Dragonflight 10.1.5. Pawn will stop annotating "currently equipped" tooltips until 10.1.5 launches.
Dragonflight: Added support for the 10.1.5 PTR.
Dragonflight: Added support for Augmentation Evokers. If you're using Pawn in Automatic mode (the default), you don't need to do anything extra. If you're using Pawn in Manual mode, you'll need to import your own Augmentation scale or use (shift-click) the one that comes with Pawn. (Stat weights for Augmentation aren't available yet so it's a placeholder in this version of Pawn.)

Version 2.8.1

Dragonflight: Fixed a problem that could occur when showing Pawn's version number on 10.1.0.

Version 2.8.0

Updated for Dragonflight: Embers of Neltharion (10.1.0).

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.

Can you turn on the User Interface Errors option and let me know what errors you get? I need as much of that information as possible to be able to fix problems without actually being able to try it myself.

Hey, check out the latest Pawn 1.1 alpha. The Pawn 1.0.x versions all fail pretty hard on Wrath. I haven't been able to test on Wrath yet, but 1.1 should at least be much better. You can find the alphas here:

The individual item values don't get displayed in tooltips and an error about PawnValue being empty occurs. That is in WoltK beta.

Actually, scratch that. Try version 1.0.4. I think that I've identified and fixed the problem thanks to another report from Curse.

since the update I've got the problem that the pawn-frame in the charmenu falls out of the screen:


if I open the options,set it to the left corner and to the right again it is on the right place until reload.

Pawn 1.0.3 should work perfectly with the live realms, and I've tested it on multiple computers. What you're seeing are typical symptoms of an error loading Pawn. Can you try these?

1) First of all, delete your old Pawn folder and retry Pawn 1.0.3. Maybe you had an old file in there somewhere.

2) If you still run into problems, enable "user interface errors" in the Interface Options dialog, log out, and then log back in. You should get an error message on-screen. Let me know what the error message says.

Re: Enchanted item values, unenchanted items values discrepency

Why do you say that using the unenchanted value doesn't take gems into account? That's the point of having stats for empty sockets. Set the values of the empty sockets to the values of the gems you'd put in them. Then, the unenchanted values of the new healing weapon will be directly comparable to the unenchanted values of the old healing weapon, even if one of them had gems already socketed and was enchanted.

Enchanted item values, unenchanted items values discrepency

Ok, I'm a bit fan of straight comparison on item. This includes Enchantes/Gems. However, Pawn is messing with this. When comparing an enchanted item to an un-enchanted one (for instance weapons, one unenchanted, and teh same one enchanted with 81 heals) Pawn doesn't correct the un-enchanted weapon to include the 81 healing that would be enchanted on it.

"why don't you use the un-enchanted value only?"
Because that would not include gems into the calculation. Any item i get will likely be enchanted with the same enchants, and i suspect the same for the rest of you in most cases. Is there a way to fix this?
