    Title: Buff spells target pet.
    Reproduction Rate: 100%.
    Blocker? No.
    Details: Buff spells (like Air's Embrace and even Light) and healing spells target my pet unless I specifically target my avatar. I feel this is backwards; these spells should target my avatar unless I specifically target my pet. The only exception to this should be Heal Creature and Resurrect Creature on the taming tree.
    Steps to Reproduce: Summon a pet, press escape to make sure no target is selected and then cast a buff or healing spell.

    This can happen if you look at the summon while casting the spell so depends on line of sight.

    Unfortunately, if anything is visible on the screen besides your intended target.... The system will pick anything else 90 degrees and 30m away instead :p

    combat with pets is only a waste of time (no relevant damage of any type to any mid/high level enemy) ... if you want they... start every buff/heal session pressing F1
