Not so that they can't be cast anymore, just so that you notice that you're going to break your concentration if you choose to cast this spell. Or really any other solution that notifies you when this happens would be great. A pop-up would also do the trick, although that would be a lot more disrupting.

I wouldn't specifically use greying out, since that communicates something that can't be used. But maybe a border or a little brain icon or something that shows up on concentration spells when you're already concentrating on something. Also, among the many other UI changes that would be nice, clearer communication that you are actively concentrating on something would help. Right now, it just blends in with other status effects.

Or put a "C" in the bottom right corner of spells that have concentration. (And maybe add R in the other corner for those that should be ritual cast thus making them free to use out of combat)
Basically make it that the symbol makes it clear what kind of spell it is.

I hope you mean bottom left ...
In bottom right there is (or should be in some cases) spell level. :-/

You are right I uh messed up directions. Though I guess with this suggested change, number could go to top left or right lol.

The spell you are currently concentrating on should be highlighted with an animated border like the active reactions.

I think Concentration deserves its own UI element, maybe in place of one of the 4 health pool indicators. That way it could both display the current Concentration spell, AND allow you to cancel Concentration WITHOUT casting a new spell.

I also +1 this one.
With a better UI this could be really usefull.

Honnestly I wouldn't really like grey icons because it would looks like you can't use them.
I think the toggle/highlight solution is better.

+1, some kind of icon / sign of spells that replace a currently concentrated spell would be nice.
