Everybody always says this in these forums, but every single time we have done this in both of our raid groups, and I mean literally every single time, there has been no good way to tell when RoB was going to happen during phase two.
There is no accurate timer for RoB. There is a 45 cooldown on RoB, but he does not cast RoB when the cooldown is up. Instead, he casts it at any time between 45 seconds and more than a minute after the last one.
It would probably be best to just assume it was going to happen every minute, but that doesn't mean it is going to work every time.
I think it's pretty hard to miss with Spirit Shell. The DBM timer doesn't really tell you anything, but SSing on CD has some pretty solid results. Best case scenario, he RoBs after SS expires. Worst case, he RoBs as you start up SS. In the latter case, you can hold your SS on the next RoB (since RoB is likely to be up before SS is) and call for another raid CD.
