This, yes this. My first instinct was to say uh.. rogue.. see if backstab is blanked out. But the more I think of it, even in dragonsoul, you benefit greatly from having your camera zoomed way out, but yes, it's then really hard to tell, even if your toon is a big night elf, whether you're behind the boss or not. When I play my rogue, a little gnome, in a 25 man raid it really is tough in the crowd of melee to make sure you're doing max dmg by being behind. There is no question, making sure you have good situational awareness is a top priority in raids. For many (myself included) this involves having the camera zoomed almost out to max. It would be nice to have something to make the dumb little minigame of keeping yourself in a tiny little optimal dps box a little simpler. No wonder I like playing my mage way more lol. Maybe managing mana is way easier while keeping SA since it's just a little bar to look at, not a mob of ppl to play where's waldo in constantly.I've talked myself into really wanting such an addon now. Like the DBM range indicator, but more like showing yourself relative to the boss so it's as simple to look at as a mana bar is to keep track of. Like a local map version of the large overall map of the encounter as a whole. There has to be something simple and dumb I'm overlooking. No, just zooming in isn't an answer, I can't feel effective if it's not visually obvious what's comming in the next few seconds.
