HUD Tweaks

Today's patch includes a few more HUD changes, including continued tweaks to the font and colors.

They've increased the size of the ally frames on the right side but the small box behind them hasn't been adjusted yet.

The "Not enough mana" indicator is now a brighter blue  to differentiate between the dark blue of "on CD".
