Rainbow Sprite, no longer changes colour?

I've had a rainbow sprite for oh.. aeons (5+ years) and have been using it constantly since my return. However I just now took notice that it .. doesn't change colour like it used to oh so many years ago. It remains a steady light blue and never changes. After having observed this I've had it out for the last 30mins and not one single change in colour or hue.

What is the issue?
-- Rainbow sprite does not change colour.

What steps must be taken for us to recreate the issue?
-- Simply summon your rainbow sprite and observe the lack of colour change from anything but light blue.

What do you expect to happen instead?
-- It used to cycle through a rainbow of colours over a short period of time.

    Please provide a video of this issue to make it a complete report.

    I own the pet as well and posted the issue to the old forum a couple years ago about it. I'm not sure if it was ever looked into or not though. The pet does still change colors, but the timer is either just random or very lengthy.

    Will do, will try to make it as long as possible accordingly. In the meantime I supplied a picture of the current colour.

    Edit: go figure... it just now changed after a very long period of time. -.-; Guess it should be noted the change of colour is just very long compared to what it used to be thus rendering this report invalid.

    XD Same thing happened to me. I was like, Why are you not changing! Darn you! Oh wait, you finally did after like 20 mins! Grr!

    It's ok. The report can still remain since this is still an issue that can be addressed. I remember when the sprite would change every couple mins or so. I miss that a lot.

    EDIT: Ah, here's the original thread about the issue in case you want to check it out. Old forums poof at the end of the month so this thread will vanish by then. D: http://mabinogi.nexon.net/Community/forums#/showthread.php?988986-Rainbow-Sprite-Bug&nxid=10

    Video added accordingly (low res as it's all that's needed). 5 minutes no change. Also thanks for the thread pointer.. I will be reviewing it as well shortly.

    edit: sprite is 33% exp at around lv64.. and it's always well fed. So that has no relation to it unfortunately.

    Just like in the old thread (linked by @Shoog), I still think this is hunger and time related... with a touch of TLC. ☺

    When I first summoned my Rainbow Sprite (today), it looked sickly and Blue. The Stamina was down seven points and it was very hungry. I fed it some Large Meats from Glenis and we went to the library. No real change after wearing it for a few minutes. I warped to Quilla Camp and we killed some Mongoose together. I fed it some more meat and then stood there for awhile with it mounted on my back, monitoring its Food rate and then fed it when the rate dropped a little. At 6pm it turned Green, and then at 9pm it turned Purple. http://imgur.com/a/rBEHY

    I wasn't too sure about the Green at first, thinking perhaps it was just the lighting. The Purple was pretty assuring though. ☺

    Edit: *and now, a whole game day later, it's an Orange color (Food rate is at 90%). I added a screenshot to the above linked album. ☺

    Note: The second-to-last screenshot in the album I linked (9:00) and the last screenshot (9:10) are actually a game-day apart. I wasn't able to pay attention to it for the entire 36 real minute span, after confirming it turned Purple. I had to log out for some computer updates and did some dishes while I waited. When I logged back in and summoned the sprite, it turned Orange. ☺

    Pondering this whole situation, I think the color changes occur as the Food rate decreases. When it gets below a certain percentage, it stops. ☺
