About Pawn

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!)

Prerelease alpha versions of Pawn are occasionally available on CurseForge.

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 1.9.7

    Strength, Agility, Intellect, and Stamina can't be marked as "unusable" in custom scales.  (Since multiple primary stats are on most armor pieces now, marking those as unusable leads to some confusing and unexpected results.)
    Made a couple small improvements to the French, German, and Traditional Chinese translations.

Version 1.9.6

    Pawn will now no longer suggest gems for items below level 630 (level 100 heroic dungeon).  (This change is particularly noticeable for helms, which had high-value meta sockets at level 90, but not at level 100.)
    Improved the German and Simplified Chinese translations.

Version 1.9.5

    Additional changes to try to prevent the "UseSpecialQuestItem" error from occurring when clicking items in the objectives list.
    More improvements to the Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese translations.

Version 1.9.4

    Dodge and Parry on low-level items will now be treated as if they were Bonus Armor, at a 2:1 ratio.  (40 Parry on an item will be treated as 20 Bonus Armor.)
    Pawn will now once again work with AtlasLoot even when the "Use GameTooltip" AtlasLoot setting is off.  (Release versions only, not the latest AtlasLoot beta.)
    The warrior tank starter scale now properly has a value for bonus armor.
    Included lots of improvements to the Traditional Chinese translation.

Version 1.9.3

    Changed the way that Pawn uses item tooltips, in the hopes that it will prevent issues where the game blocks certain buttons and actions due to "taint."
    Fixed a bug where a few settings wouldn't be saved when logging out, including Pawn's list of your best items used for determining upgrades.
    Included new French translations.

Version 1.9.2

    Continued changes to the starter scales and translations.

Version 1.9.1

    Bonus armor is now listed as a separate stat from base armor and can be given a value independently.
    Significantly increased the value of armor and bonus armor in the tank starter scales.
    Fixed a harmless error where a message about #(Item1.UnknownLines could appear in the chat log when using the Compare tab.
    Fixed a harmless error where a message about being unable to parse the item link could appear in the chat log when hovering over a caged battle pet.

Version 1.9

    Updated for WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor.  Many features have changed in some way as a result of item changes in patch 6.0.
    I updated the visuals for the Pawn UI to be a little more warlordy.
    A new set of starter scales have been added for all classes and specs.  You can use these scales as you would the old Wowhead scales, and you can also customize them to your heart's content.
    The Wowhead scales have been disabled since they haven't been updated for patch 6.0 and would do more harm than good.
    The values of Pawn's default scale have changed to be a more appropriate starting point for WoW 6.0.
    New stats are recognized and can be assigned values on the Values tab: Bonus Armor, Multistrike, Versatility, Movement Speed, Leech, Avoidance, Indestructible.
    Obsolete stats (hit, etc.) are removed from your scales upon logging in, and have been removed from the UI.
    All of the new Taladite gems in Warlords of Draenor are now in Pawn's database.
    The changes to stats on pre-Draenor gems in Pawn's database have been taken into account for purposes of gem recommendations.  (I anticipate that I'll need to do another update of gem stats before the expansion hits.)
    A new option has been added, on by default: "Ignore sockets on low-level items."  When this option is enabled, Pawn will ignore sockets when calculating values of low-level items (currently, any item below level 463), so they won't have inflated values when Pawn determines upgrades.
    Pawn's calculations for item values no longer take reforging potential into account since that feature is gone from the game.
    All code for Pawn's Reforge Advisor feature has been removed.
    Changed the way that information about your best items for purposes of determining upgrades is stored and processed.  (I now use item links instead of item IDs, since in Warlords of Draenor, a mythic version of one item and the raid finder version of the same item might have the same ID but a different bonus suffix.)

    It seems the information for elemental shaman and restoration is switched. They need to be swapped! In other words, I have to use the stats for restoration to get my elemental shaman's recomendations to make sense.

    The stat priorities are imported from Wowhead.  How would you expect them to be different?  Are you talking about the high value of spirit?  According to Wowhead, elemental values hit highly, and spirit gets converted to hit.

  • #2123

    Your character's current stats do not affect the scores given to items.  If you want to rate items that have spirit and hit lower, you can make a copy of the built-in "Shaman: elemental" scale and then reduce the values for those stats accordingly.

  • #2121

    I'm at the 15% hit cap so don't need any more spirit.

    I want to translate this addon into brazilian portuguese, could you please let me know if you are still interessed?

  • #2115

    I'll reply to your PM.

    Let me help translate too

  • #2112

    What's the fix for the "no per-character settngs" error? I've had a look and can't find anything on it (I know it's out there as I've done it before).

  • #2114

    Can you give me the exact text of the error message you're seeing, or at least more of it?  It's probably due to an incompatibility with another addon.

  • #2143

    It fixes it, but only for the existing session. Next time I log in it occurs again.

  • #2141

    That seems to have fixed it. Thanks.

  • #2140

    You can try

    /script PawnInitialize()

    ...and maybe that will fix the problem for you.

  • #2139

    There's nothing specific that I know of that uses Pawn.

    New character and only for that character

  • #2120

    Hmmm, are you using Pawn_Scrap or another addon that uses information from Pawn?  Does this problem only occur for that character?  Is it a new character that hasn't ever been used with Pawn?

    Sorry for the delay, haven't logged on to that alt much lately.
