If someone is in a raid everyone that is out of the raid should have a indicator above their had something like not in raid. Also should work the other way around people out of raid should see a indicator in raid.
+1, we need a clearer indication of who is involved during a raid as to not interfere. I was messing around with coloring players during raids and some people liked it a lot, perhaps we could do something like that? or have the raid timer also show all faction members.
