What is the issue?
The Rainbow Sprite no longer alternates colors from blue to orange to purple and instead remains blue permanently.

What steps must be taken to recreate the issue?
Summon a Rainbow Sprite and leave it out for a while.

What do I expect to happen instead?
The Rainbow Sprite, according to it's introduction page seen below, is supposed to change color with each passing day. While the exact time has never been disclosed, Rainbow Sprite pets have seemingly lost the ability to change color. This could be related to some issues with the Divine Link skill and the Sprite Pet, or with the increased level of the pet, or with changes to the hunger system. I don't believe age is the issue, since the recent introduction of free pet rebirths has confirmed this issue is not age-restricted.

    This is quite an old issue.
    Here's a previous bug report thread on the issue:
    http://forums.mabinogi.nexon.net/discussion/1257/rainbow-sprite-no-longer-changes-colour/p1

    From back in January of 2017.
    In that thread, there's a link to an even OLDER report, but that linked to the old forums which don't exist anymore.
    But what I'm saying is that this issue is even older than THAT.

    Anyways, I've also had this issue for a bajillion years.

    I 1st noticed this back during the last Maple Leaf Event. Even when the Rainbow Sprite does (finally) change color, it usually lasts for a split second before going back to the default blue.
    It used to be that when summoned the color was random, but it did seem to favor the blue. And the color would change every few minutes or so and whenever it switched from day to night and vice versa in mabi time.
    Actually saw someone with one summoned the other day and it was pink! I meant to go back later to see if it went back to blue but I forgot to. -.-'
