So I've just dusted off my Death Knight and am beginning the process of gearing him up for Frost to be a fun alt to raid on as a change from my resto shaman main, and I've noticed that as I'm fighting enemies and bosses, I'm spending more time watching my abilities and their cooldowns (Frost Strike, Obliterate, etc.) than I am watching the floor to stay out of bad. Fortunately I use the GTFO addon so it helps me not stand in anything more than a second or two, but I'd like to not be so dependent on watching icons on bars to see when what is off cooldown.
What do you more experienced DK's (and other melee I'm guessing) do to prevent this but still maximize your damage? Thank you for your advice.
