After having, for the umpteenth time, to tell someone that "West" was "Left" on their map/compass, might I request that the 4 arrows on the compass be changed to indicate the cardinal directions? Additionally, can this be placed on the map screen?

Map reading doesn't seem to be the strong-suit of some :D

Yes, please. NESW is exactly what the map orb needs. :)

I have to agree too, I know some .. shall we say .. directionally challenged individuals who could use them. :D

But, even for some folks, it's quickly followed by, "no, your other left." /facepalm At least NESW clears up that confusion.

I remember when I started running around Stormreach, for the first 3 days I was running around blind with the map open so I could get to my destination, didn't know you could click on the local and the white arrow appears on the compass lol.
At least now I can get to where I want to go without the map anymore, well at least in town, the desert is another kettle of fish all together

I hate to have to sign something like this as well, but I've given the "No, your other Left" directions often enough as well....

Barbarians go confidently in the direction they are facing, even when they are not confident it is the right one....

Lol, I was about to make a point that many people would still go the wrong way, even with a labeled compass. But I think this guy made that clear.

After you get that done, let me doodle on mini map so I can draw arrows furiously in the direction of our intended destination, and not the upcoming destination, which will more than likely be a very deep chasm. Then again, if they are that lost to begin with, looking up to see my arrows may lead to them falling into said deep chasm. Some people cant find their way out of a paper bag.

A simple fix, maybe 15 minutes tops.

I support this endeavor as well.

...And some daringly name their characters accordingly, much to the humor of the party they traverse with.
