you could wait a little bit, im sure you will be able to find a third party ui skin to use that might change that. i know when i played last year with my older dino comp i used DDO LIGHT which made most of the UI transparent, and the actual boarders of the UI smaller so you could...overlap? the differnt things. i managed to keep everything out of eyes site and it worked all right.
i have not played since u11 so im not sure how bad it is. but if its as bad as people say it is look for a new DDO skin. also, LOtR skins work also from what i remember. i may be wrong.
