Something I find I have difficulty with on melee DPS fights, especially in raids (doesn't really matter what class) is seeing or hearing the "too far away" or "you must be behind your target" notices. Obviously this is a DPS killer.Any suggestions to make those particular messages scream out? The alert text gets lost on my screen during fights because it floats in the center over all the action (spell effects, etc), and the sound is frequently off or drowned out by other in-game environmental sound (I usually have game sound turned down or muted so I can hear raid voice chat).Feel free to share this question with the queue if this is more of a configuration question than an addon one.Thanks!

This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but you could try using RangeDisplay and putting range to target in a very prominent location, or perhaps hide the distance if you are in range, etc.Link: http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/range-display.aspx

@ etr,I use bartender as a total bar replacement and it has an option to color your ability buttons red if your target is out of range. Not sure if this is what you're looking for or not but it definitely helped my raiding when I'm on my rogue.

http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/droodfocus.aspxWhen you are too far away, not facing your target, or not behind your target; it puts a big, fat icon in the middle of your screen (or wherever you want it) alerting you of this fact. It's called "DroodFocus" but really, it's great for all classes now. Highly recommended, and since you can turn on only the modules you want it's highly customizable. Can't recommend it enough.

Turn all your music and ambient sounds down to like 20% or so and keep the Sounds slider at 100%, then turn your speakers up so all the game sounds sound like they do normally and the messages will be a lot louder :).
