PSA: Pawn is Busted. Here’s a Workaround

If you’ve been using the addon Pawn for item comparison, be aware that the 6.2 patch broke it subtly.

Quest Pane If you have something like BugSack installed, you may have noticed that a bug was detected whenever you moused over any loot icons in a quest window.

What you might not have known is that as soon as that happened, Pawn quit working. Completely. The compare window didn’t work, nor did tooltip compares work. Ergo, every time thereafter that you got new loot, there would be no indication that it was an upgrade, even if it was.

What I’m saying here is that you might need to avail yourself of the free “disenchanted item recovery service” if you’ve DE’d “worthless” equipment in the past week.

There is, fortunately, a workaround.  Simply reload your UI, whether via the interface or by typing /reloadin your chat window. And avoid any mousovers in the quest window.

The author is aware of the issue and is working on it. Meanwhile, keep an eye on the addon’s web page or use an addon manager like Curse.  (Well, okay, Curse. Because Minion is completely useless.)
