Pawn  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.9
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 2.3.9

Additional updates to the Simplified Chinese translation from wolfcon.

Version 2.3.8

WoW Classic: Now supports Portuguese.
WoW Classic: Now supports Simplified Chinese, thanks to wolfcon.
Some updates to the Russian translation, courtesy of drcrazy777.

Version 2.3.7

WoW Classic: Now supports Spanish and German.

Version 2.3.6

WoW Classic: the Compare tab will now refresh itself after a moment to make sure it has the latest stats from your items.

Version 2.3.5

/pawn compare can now compare two items at once: /pawn compare left 12345 right 67890
Fixed a bug introduced in Pawn 2.3.0 that made it impossible to import a scale with a class and spec specified the first time you tried.
Fixed problems with baguette damage in French WoW.

Version 2.3.4

WoW Classic: Now supports French in addition to English.
Fixed a problem introduced in WoW 8.2.5 where Pawn wouldn't recognize numbers 1,000 or larger in the Russian version of WoW—not the same one as for French and Spanish!

Version 2.3.3

Added a new Pawn slash command: /pawn compare. You can use this as an alternate way to put items into Pawn's Compare UI. For example, "/pawn compare left 16795" puts Arcanist's Crown into the left slot of Pawn's Compare tab.
The compare command accepts item IDs, "item:12345:0:0" strings, or full shift+clicked item links ("/pawn compare [Arcanist's Crown]").
If your PC hasn't downloaded the stats for an item yet, the command might not do anything the first time. Try it again (Enter, Shift+Up, Enter) after a second and it should work the second time.
Addon authors can use "PawnUI_SetCompareItemAndShow(1, 16795)" to accomplish the same thing. (1 for left, 2 for right.)
Fixed a problem where armor was being ignored in French WoW.
WoW Classic: Worked around a problem where Pawn would sometimes not see all of the stats on an item (typically, the "green stats").
This workaround will result in slightly lower performance on WoW Classic. I'm still investigating a better long-term solution.
For the curious, it's because the game client would get a partial list of stats for the item, then Pawn would do its calculations on that, and then shortly afterward the game would get the rest of the stats for the item, but at that point Pawn didn't know that it needed to re-scan the item, so it was evaluating the item based on just the first batch of stats it got.
WoW Classic: Removed "All Resistances", which does not appear to exist on any items in Classic.
WoW Classic: Added support for "of Concentration" items.
Russian and Chinese: For consistency, Pawn's "debug" and "backup" slash commands are now always in English like they are for all other languages.

Version 2.3.2

Fixed a problem introduced in WoW 8.2.5 where Pawn wouldn't recognize numbers 1,000 or larger in the French and European Spanish versions of WoW.
I introduced a system that will make Pawn a little easier to translate in the future, and make it more resilient to changes in the way that non-English versions of WoW display numbers.
WoW Classic: Added support for ranged weapon DPS, "of Defense" items, and probably more stuff I forgot about.

Version 2.3.1

WoW Classic: Added support for "of Eluding" items.

Version 2.3

Consider this version a full release for Battle for Azeroth and a beta for WoW Classic. WoW Classic is supported for English only in this version. Pawn does not include any built-in scales for WoW Classic, so you'll need to create your own scales from scratch, or import them. Not all Pawn features exist on WoW Classic, and some features are incomplete.

There are no new features for Battle for Azeroth in this version. If you run into any issues on the live/retail realms, you can return to 2.2.x and shouldn't miss out on anything.
The "show item level upgrades" feature will default to OFF in Classic. (But, if you've already used one of the earlier versions of Pawn on Classic, that option may already be on, so turn it off manually if you don't want it.)

Hi! Yeah, that's something that I definitely would like Pawn to be smarter about. Right now there unfortunately isn't a workaround other than just ignoring the false "upgrade" notices.

It's always been a problem in some fashion, but until a few years ago it was pretty much just limited to garbage green rings that you wouldn't use for long anyway, so I never got around to it. Now that items can randomly drop with sockets or bonus stats or higher item levels, it's a problem that can affect everyone even at max level.

Hi there!

Is it possible for Pawn to detect that I'm already wearing a unique-equipped ring that I have another copy of in my bags? The one I'm wearing has a socket, is the same ilevel, with the same stats. Pawn's insisting that the one in my bags is a 98% upgrade. I presume because it thinks the one in my bag is better than the *other* one I'm wearing. But I can't equip it.

Here is an album with two screenshots: first one shows the tooltip for the Smuggler's Cove ring in my bag, second one shows the Smuggler's Cove ring I have equipped.

I'll note that the one I'm wearing is also my lowest ilvl item,

Hey—are you using the Zygor addon? Pawn doesn't have a button like that, but I remember getting the same question a while back, and I don't remember for sure which addon it was.

When you're looking at the comments page, just above the top comment, is the Post Reply button. To the right of that - sometimes immediately to the right, sometimes more centered - is a Comment Options dropdown.

An option on that dropdown - usually the last on the list - is Add To Email Feed.

If you click that, you'll get email whenever a comment is made by anyone on that page.

Hi! If you want Pawn to leave your tooltip borders alone, it's one of the first things on Pawn's Options tab. If you uncheck that option, it shouldn't conflict with your other addons that also try to change the color. (You might want to try a /reload after you change the setting if you don't see an improvement immediately.)

Does that help?

Hi! Unfortunately the green arrows that appear in your bags are actually drawn by the game and are thus a different texture. Those are the smallest ones, and I'm guessing they're the ones that you're referring to. (Pawn just influences when they show up, not the actual appearance.) So for those I don't have any suggestions I'm afraid.

UpgradeArrowBig is the one that's used on quest rewards, when loot drops, and so on. Those are rather big so I'm guessing they aren't a problem.

If you want to make the upgrade arrows that appear on tooltips larger, that's when the regular "UpgradeArrow" gets used. They're sized to be the same height as the text nearby. I *think* you can make them larger by opening up Localization.lua (or the appropriate language file if you're playing in a language other than English) and doing a search-and-replace for "UpgradeArrow:0" and changing it to, say, "UpgradeArrow:25". It'll look a little out of place but should otherwise work.

Let me know if that helps any! Unfortunately I don't have any advice on making the in-bag arrows bigger.

Hi! Right now automatic spec switching is only for Automatic mode, not Manual mode with custom scales. But I've definitely gotten the feedback that some people would like their custom weights to follow their spec as well, so that's something pretty high on the to-do list.

Larger upgrade arrow

I see a texture for a larger upgrade arrow. (UpgradeArrowBig.tga)

Looking in the PawnUI I only see reference made to UpgradeArrowBig.

I'm looking because I'd like to make the upgrade arrow even bigger. (It tends to get hidden where it's not noticeable, for example, to a young son that's reached level 120 without upgrading his legion artifact weapons, or keeping any of the weapon upgrades he's picked up along the way.) (He's upgraded every piece of armor, but not his weapons.)

Is there a way I can get a bigger uprade arrow? (Can I just resize the .tga file maybe?)
