Surely not having to stare at the chat window and rather, at the surroundings/actual boss/situation makes for better awareness and reactions? It just separates things out, you only have to listen rather than try and watch multiple things at once.I'm not sure if I've totally understood, but you don't use voice chat at all or you just don't have a raid caller? Because, if you're not using a form of voice chat and -all- commands are going out via raid chat, that'd be seriously penalising yourself or I would've thought.I usually raid lead and generally seem to fill this raid caller role too, calling out instructions, abilities, percentages etc. It keeps me focused and on the ball, with quick reminders to everyone else as well. One advantage I can think of having someone call things out rather than waiting for the in-game raid chat warning (if that's what you're using) is that I can call out things I know are coming up but haven't happened yet so people can prepare. Crackle of Nefarian for example or anything with a timer.If you don't need one, then props to you, I've probably not fully grasped your situation from what you mentioned, but there are certain advantages to having a raid caller.
