Notes[edit]

Gw2logo.png The Guild Wars 2 Wiki also has an article on Echo.
  • Echo can copy powerful skills with long recharge times, doubling the rate at which they can be used.
  • Use it to copy skills with short recharge times in order to spam them, e.g. adrenaline skills that have any recharge time.
  • Combine Echo with Arcane Echo to create Echo chains, allowing you to have three copies of a skill at once. Add Arcane Mimicry to create multiple copies of a party member's elite.
  • Use Auspicious Incantation to help manage energy costs (especially since Echo chains consume a lot of energy); the downside is mitigated since the disabled skill gets replaced shortly after.
  • To capture Echo from a boss that has just copied a skill, wait 30 seconds (for the effect to wear off) before using your Signet of Capture.
  • If used to copy a skill that can copy another skill or spell, the copy duration of that skill is used and will bypass Echo's 30-second copy duration.
    • E.g., if used to copy Arcane Larceny/Thievery with Domination Magic rank 15, whatever spell that is stolen from a foe by the Echo version of Arcane Larceny/Thievery will remain as that stolen spell for 35 seconds and then revert back to Echo.
    • E.g., if used to copy Arcane Larceny/Thievery with Domination Magic rank 0, whatever spell that is stolen from a foe by the Echo version of Arcane Larceny/Thievery will remain as that stolen spell for 5 seconds and then revert back to Echo.
Anomaly Anomaly.Echo's description omits the fact that it cannot copy a Signet of Capture and itself.
