    can you create a dbm like warning when an opponent use a spell?

    Can you create warnings by using parameters such as when an opponent cast a specific spell (eg. polymorph) or when he use a burst cd or has a spell on cooldown (eg. kick)?

    I'm playing shaman and I have too many interrupts but also I have to look into the bars a lot, it is hard to keep up with all of this

    You can make weak auras i guess, and customize them to look like DBM.

    Ofc you can also use a voice announer.

    For cd tracking, name plate addons + Omnibar.

    WeakAura or TellMeWhen. I use TellMeWhen and have a sound play when an enemy begins to cast a CC spell.

    You can do almost anything with it, it just takes some effort to understand how to use it.

    The voice announcer tells you about spells after they are done casting I think and not when the cast begin. I tried in one game in arena and I have this impression, it looks nice though, really easy to be alerted about stuff with voice.

    Gladiatorlosa( correct me if I'm wrong) is a pretty good addon for a new pvp player. You can customize it to pretty much announce any spell/CD you want and it did call out spells like polymorph when the cast had started and not when finished. I know akro(EU rogue) used this addon in legion at least but I don't know if it's still being updated.

    Imo it's almost cheating because even if your awareness is 0 you can still quite easily keep track off what's going on, because audio alerts are way easier to keep track off. It's especially nice if you're learning a new class and you can't keep track of your ability cds without staring at your bars, which is the main reason you have trouble of keeping track of your enemies.

    Yeah, I'm old school pvper and I have never used something like this before. I used to stare at the cast bars but I played dps back then and it would take a lot of time until I build my awareness and reflexes again. This one is a pretty sick addon. I wonder if you can add voice to weakauras too but I can't find such option.

    top of the screen ‘xx casts polymorph -> currenttarget’

    Haven’t heard of that before, but I know there’s an addon called GladiatorlosSA that announces casts made by enemy players.
