2. Cast bar for displaying cast / channel activities (replaces default UI bar).
2. Four swatches to display health, role, class and level of your group members.
4. Currency bar to display Apexis Crystals, Garrison Resoures, Oil and Money.
5. ExtraAction bar to display one time use picked up items like mines, charges, grenades etc.
6. Inventory bar to display equipped items their levels, quality and tooltip. Also scans other players.

All elements are draggable, their width, height, color can be changed through slash commands as well as update frequency.
