Seriously there is a lot to like about this game but how can you have an interface where you can't move all the items in it to where you like? Also, whats with all the interface bugs. Why can't I heal in a Warzone because my group mates health doesn't update? Little things like this are going to cost this game big time if they aren't fixed ASAP. They are almost inexcusable really.

Bioware will be releasing addon and UI tools in time. I think it's one of their main priorities.

Pretty sure you cannot move the windows. If you can please educate me, as I need to know this.

No you can't move any part of the UI except for resizing/making new chat windows. And for some stupid reason the left hand quickslot bars' top quickslot is half covered by the chat window by DEFAULT! Whose dumb idea was that?

Yea the UI is pretty utilitarian right now but there are a lot of really good examples out there that I'm sure BW is looking at. I don't know where they got their info but some posters here have said a new UI revamp is in the works to be ready after the holidays.

*fingers crossed*

Worse than Asheron's Call? I think not.

overall i would say this is the one thing that is lacking and evident from early gameplay, it should also be one of the easiest to fix.
an option for resizing and moving the elements around on the hud would be much appreciated here.

obviously you never played EQ when it launched, not that was horrible.

I agree, this UI is abhorrent. I love the rest of the game to pieces but can't get over the horrid UI. The UI is thankfully not a game breaking issue for me, but it doesn't make me happy either. It COULD turn into a game breaking issue if it doesn't see any improvements over the next few months though.
