    It would really help if my Health and Focus where above my skill glyph bar. I could almost keep my eyes on one spot.. as it is, my eyes are constantly pulled to the top left corner of screen to see my condition and weather or not I am in auto attack mode and engaged. It would be a huge help also and more obvious if the sword icon inbetween skill glyph 5 and 6 changed from green to yellow to red instead of our names... all that combined would really help keep focus on center and bottom of screen. The icons for skills would also have to pop up above the skill glyph bar.
    All vital information in one spot.

    +1 for this (at least)
    Moving the health bars might get tricky (do you move your opponents' bars as well, what happens with multiple mobs - the bottom of screen would get pretty crowded)
    But I think the central sword idea is brilliant - you are focusing on that area anyway, and it would be a quick and easy indicator whether you are lined up/in range etc.
    Bravo for a "lightbulb" moment - hope the decs take note!

    People keep asking for this (for good reason), i think at some point it was mentioned that it was planned for when they do a pass on the GUI (being able to reposition more stuff).

    Oh I would love this too! Between having to stare at my hotbar because I use the Deck System instead of locking my deck and then having to look up at my health, its really annoying especially on a 32" monitor. I would love having the Health and Focus Bar down by the hotbar.

    I keep asking for a complete removal of any bars, even health bars and switch them with a more organic system like limping, clouded view, heavy breathing to measure the health etc.

    I would like to see ALL UI components movable and lockable (with position remembered by the client) and scalable so that we can all customize them to fit our screen sizes and preferences. I've been asking for it for quite a while and hope to see it soon. I know the scalable part might take some work, but other UI elements are already movable and lockable so it shouldn't be too hard to allow that for others.

    Away with all the screen clutter and back to the innovative early and original thoughts from @RichardGarriott and @Chris.

    The devs started to dislike me the day I said I prefered an isometric 2d ana half :p

    Isometric might be the best view IMO for RPGs, but the best UI ? :p lol... last time I played I felt clumsy
