Hi guys,

First of all, i know this is a noob questions but i really no idea what is the best approach to solve it.
The question is simple: how do you know when an ability is available? Example: judgement for Ret Pala.
In all videos, all good players, have their key binds in the bottom of the screen. From what i imagine you need to look in the bottom of the screen to see when an ability is available while looking in the center (and left + right) to know what the opponents are doing.

I moved my main ability bar in the center, however i imagine that this is not the way do do it.

Download Cooldown count.  Adds a number to your abilities, allowing you to get a quick glance instead of guessing.,  Really good for a beginner

Thanks for the quick response,

I think i was not very accurate in describing my problem.
The issue is maximizing dps, if i have more DAMAGE abilities that come off cool down, some times i choose the wrong one because i don't notice that a better priority one is available.
The thing i don't get is how you guys see what is available or not at any point during the match if the information is scatter all over the screen.

I barely got rival last season, from what i see the biggest difference in 1.8k and 1.9k rating is the damage output

Read guides, and watch videos to learn the priorities of your class and practice it. Pound it in your head and you will start to do it with out thinking.

omni CC is a cool addon, just adds big cooldown numbers to your bars

but yeah, just play, you'll get the hang of it

I actually have all of my non-cooldown spells (only CD being the GCD) hidden.  I use Bartender and the only spells that I can see are the ones that actually have cooldowns and I use omni CC to track the exact time of the cooldown.
