The Bonedancers pet-only buffs of type str/con and dex/qui are not executed on pets, if a target different from the pet is selected at the beginning of the cast.

e.g. a keep door or a mob/player is selected, and the pet-buff is cast, it wont have any effect on the pet. The mana is consumed nevertheless.

It is working on the dmgadd-buff. This one always goes on the commander per default, if none of the minions is selected.

Reproduction Steps

1. As a bonedancer, try to cast spells like "strengthen army" or "hasten cohort" while a mob or keepdoor or smth else is selected as target.
2. See that the spell is cast, mana is consumed, but the pets won't be buffed.

Intended Behavior

Pets should be buffed by the spell also when something different is selected. Standard target should be the commander pet.

Maybe it's because these are spells with target "controlled area effect".
The dmgadd-buff that is always working has as target description "controlled".


No proof, just feels incorrect. Maybe someone else can proof the correct behavior?
