    Default Why Do My Eyes Glow?

    I have noticed, from time to time, that the eyes of all my toons glow. They have not always glowed and sometimes they don't glow. But, right now, they glow. I was wondering why that it is. Would anyone from Trion care to say why?

    A close up of one them:

    Just wondering.

    Thank you.

    1) are you a cleric?
    1b) are you in an inquisitor spec?
    1c) Do you have the buff "Spiritual Scrutiny" on? It will make your eyes glow

    ^^^^

    Or do you have:

    One of the purple weapon drops from a dungeon and the fully upgraded Infinity Stone weapon that works with it for the set bonus?

    It's probably this. My eyes glow from Crucia's mace and shield combo.

    Oh even better it works for other set bonuses too - that's cool.

    That is a yellow'ish/white glow. This one is just dungeon/raid 2-set bonus. Personally, I can't stand it - and I wish there was a way to turn it off.

    Default Trinket

    I think some trinkets produce this also.

    It is from your weapon set bonus. From either dungeon/stone or raid set bonus.

    Default Thanks

    Thank you for the responses. I had considered these as possible explanations for the glowing eyes on all my toons but if they glowed because of set bonuses, why would they stop glowing even though they still have the appropriate gear equipped?

    Its just a curiosity for me, not a big deal. Sometimes their eyes glow, sometimes they don't - even with set bonuses in effect.

    And yeah...it is kind of nifty to look at.

    Thanks again!

    Yeah, that's the cleric weapon/dungeon set that causes the purple glow eyes.

    Yellow is an inquisitor buff.

    No there is no way to turn this feature off.

    You can sometimes see the glow while in first person mode causing it to show up on screenshots or video recording if you're not careful.
