Pet Spell Perspective Bug

Good Day -
Since the introduction of Khrysalis, I have noticed that when I use a spell provided to me from my pet or my pet casts a "May Cast" talent, that the usual perspective on the pet and it casting has changed to the roof of the building or the sky if I am outside. Now I also noticed that it is not every pet that has this issue so KI may have to go through all of the pets to fix this issue. The pets I have noticed that have this issue are:

Life Minotaur
Damp Demon
Aqua Dragon

I am sure there are many more, but was just wondering if this has been reported before and is there a fix for this already planned. I know this is a minor issue since it does not affect game play, but it does get quite annoying.

This is a small thing, but in the last couple of days I have noticed that when my Jade Hound (probably true for all the Orthrus pets) casts a spell (Fairy, Balanceblade, Sprite) in battle, the camera angle is somewhere over our heads, and I'm staring at a wall. I never get to see him do his little barking thing. This is very recent, so probably happened with a recent update. All my other pets cast normally. Thanks for looking into it--a lot of the fun of having these "may cast" pets (for me) is watching them do their thing.

yeah I noticed that also in some pets, most of them. sprite or auras the camara angle focus high in the ceiling. I post the note on Wizard101 Central with some screenshots.

There are also some other items that the focus is wrong. Whem you go to the bazaar some housing items don't show properly.

And when I train my ice hound and give it the snack appears very small like the focus is far away.

It is no mayor bug but very annoying.

Also seen some wizards, when you click to check their profile and they holding this lvl 55 death cursed staff wand, they appear in a corner so i can see them half way. It also appear in a corner when you check it in bazaar.

This was happening with my storm wizard's damp demon, whenever he cast a balanceblade on her. But it seems to have corrected itself: I did some questing the other day and it no longer shows the odd angle.

I, too, have a Jade Hound that knows Fairy and Unicorn. I started noticing this problem a week or so ago. I'm glad that this topic was here, because I was about to create a new one stating the same problem. KingsIsle, I thank you for all the free items and crowns given to us. Now I will ask one more thing of you. Could you please fix this? I love the animations added to all the pets, and I'd love to be able to see it again.
Thank you.

Thanks. The thread on the Jade Hound was not posted/moderated when I posted this thread. So that is another pet type to be added to the list for KI to check on:

Damp Demon
Life Minotaur
Aqua Dragon
Jade Hound

Is this bug/issue being addressed by KI?
My questing partners and I experience this "Camera on the ceiling and not on our pet" issue
100% of the time since the Morganth world opened. We were still hammering our way through
Azteca when it started happening. We are now in Moon Cliffs and the issue continues.

Thank you kindly,

There's a really weird going on with my damp demon. Whenever it casts a spell, it shows the sky and not my pet. It's a bug and it's starting to bother me. KI should fix this, right?

I've got a Firecat with may cast fairy and a Life Minotaur with may cast balanceblade. They both suffer from this glitch as well.

I don't think it has to do with specific pets, I think it is global. It has to do with some new dynamic affecting the "camera offset" position. Whatever was changed, the result is that "petcam" is now a few units too high.

It appears to be only certain pets. Mine all cast just fine but I do see the bug when some other people's pets cast, so it's not a global problem.

Amazes me how THIS will get fixed before actual spell mechanics. Truly amazing. Fix the broken spells before a camera angle on a pet or two. Seriously.

Thank you.
