I kind of like them. It gives emotion to the character.

As I already asked, what about Garza?

First of all, that's a very lovely couple Second, I don't mind it myself when I flip the camera and look at it. But it's pretty overwhelming in cutscenes, it looks like 6 or more separate points of light and I find that too much. It completely blots out the white of the eyes in certain scenes and angles.

Plus there might be two different things going on? One is the sparkles, and the other is a sort of see-through effect? I dunno. I don't want to speculate too much and sound like an idiot. But as you can see from the screenshot I posted, Quinn's eyes look icy, like icecubes, or something. (The sparkles are there but I don't mean that.) His eyes look transparent and I think he looks disturbing.

My sister and I both have two different video cards, both updated and she has an uber gaming screen and we both have the watery eyes sparkles. We play a lot and they were not there before the patch. I am all for lively eyes but these downright glow unnaturally and are the absolute worst in cutscenes. It's like the entire top third of my characters eyeballs are getting laser burned away. Outside cutscenes and panned way back the eyes get totally taken up in the sparkle and my characters stand there eyes glowing in places eyes shouldn't reflect like that.

Well, thanks Those sad faces are what happened when they learned they'd be forced apart...and that the devs were going to punish Theron for being too awesome by shaving his hair. *insert my sparkly sad eyes here*

I am also apparently blind, because I missed your screenie the first time through the thread, but I went back and looked and you're right, it looks weird, his eyes look like you can see behind them or something, they're a bit too transparent. I did an Umbara run through with my Sorc earlier just so I could see if the effect was on the cutscenes now and they are, and it is a little much. When I ran the others earlier, (closer to release) they weren't quite so sparkly.

I hope they manage to strike a happy medium. I like more realism and emotion, but I don't want creepiness for anyone either. I'm a little afraid though...ask for a tiny adjustment and they come in with the sledgehammer, kind of like the d vs l timer.

I like them also. Maybe give them to Lightside chars who near or reach Light V or as a cosmetic unlock.

Or they could just offer it to both light and dark and make it like an appearance 'ticky box' that we can check or uncheck. My lovely Jedi knight is dark side 5, and I think the glossy eyes would be great for her...but for those that don't like it, let them be able to have normal like before.

Very annoying shader. I hope it'll be corrected soon. Characters now look like puppets with glass eyes.

This. I didn't see it as I've been doing FPs and WZs however now I've gone back to levelling alts I see it and it looks awful and a bit creepy. It's also on the start up screen on all my characters except my pureblood sith who I gave reddish coloured eyes.
Urgently Fix the 5.10 Quinn & Koth Issue
6.0: more ♥ Quinn ♥ Aric ♥ Theron ♥ Doc ♥ Koth please

Also, what was that about Zabrak Skin Color?
Just now realised I said Twi'lek when I meant Togruta xD Always getting those races confused
