[Submitted 68652] Nearest party member overrides selected target of ALL Summoned or tamed pets

    1. Cannot target Summoned Lich in party with spells

    2. Reproducible 100% of the time on my character in a party. Cannot speak for another character.

    3. Not sure what this means?

    4. I play a death/life necromancer. I want to have my Summon Lich do all combat, I heal him while he fights. I cannot participate in party content because I cannot target him with spells.

    He is TARGETED in the sense that the visual indicator for a target appears on screen.

    The Lich glows as if he is targeted, and has a targeted icon next to his name in every instance in the manner he is supposed to.

    All targeted heals (Healing Touch, Healing Ray, Healing Grace, Healing Blast) will all automatically be cast on a party member if they are in range and there is nothing you can do to make them cast on the Lich other than move out of range of party member.

    a. Have tried single click targeting
    b. Have enabled double click targeting
    c. Have tried clicking his name and health bar
    d. Have tried using target pet hotkey

    Again, all of these do target the lich visually which suggests that the HUD system is picking up the flag for targeting but the spell casting system is not.

    Thank you

    EDIT: I should note that outside of a party, playing solo, targeting your pet works mostly as intended.

    Please take a look at this as soon as possible, it makes it impossible for me to play my character how I want and I do not believe this is intended.

    Verified this thanks to @AMoldyPotato letting me hang out for a few minutes in a party. I had my summoned lich hard-targetted (with the reticle next to their name) and my healing ray spell was going to my party member, not the summoned lich.

    Verified - this is happening with all summoned creatures as well as tamed pets. I have adjusted the thread title to match.

    As of recent patch, I am no longer able to heal my pet with Healing Ray or Healing Blast if I am in a party. Healing ray/Blast will only land on players, no matter whether the pet is between myself and the player or not.

    When I leave group I am once more able to heal the pet with healing ray or healing blast. Healing touch seems unaffected when in party.

    Title: When in a party it is not possible to cast life healing spells on your summon.
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details: When you are not in a party you can use the life spells healing blast and healing ray to heal your summon. Once you join a party, even though you target your summon the healing goes to a party member instead making it impossible to heal your summon with life spells.
    Steps to Reproduce: Summon a summon, target it, and cast healing blast/healing ray on it. You will see the healing go to the summon. Join a party, ensure your summon is targeted, and repeat. The healing will no longer go to the summon even though it is targeted.

    just curious with all the recent summon updates if this longstanding issue is on the radar?
