I don't like cardinal directions. Most people seem to have no idea which way is North in any given random raid room. So calling such directions requires that they take time to look at a minimap and orient, rather than just go. People know right and left, and they know what their toon's right and left are, even if their camera is swapped. As long as the raid caller can be intermittently dyslexic, or call boss right/left, people have a very fast sense of where to go.Also, I would seriously suggest having the raid caller not be the one who decides brez's, or tries to understand problems mid fight. Quickest way to lose a call is to get distracted by something changing, and a raid that relies on a caller, Needs those calls.Else, have someone back you up on very important calls, like the fire aoe on atramedes, so if you don't say something, they do.

Agree with cardinal directions being less than helpful! For V&T we put up those nifty new raid beacons--one at the entrance, one at the other side of the room, and then all you have to remember is green, red, or middle.
