I haven't played around much with the Paragon, but tried something today in-game that didn't work as I expected:
"It's just a flesh wound." - Elite Shout.
You suffer from a Deep Wound for 10...6 seconds, and target other ally loses all Conditions. (Motivation)
5E/1C/0RI figured you can equip these two skills on, say, an Assassin, and get an unending AF (or Burning Refrain and Burning Finale). Those Echoes are in the Paragon's primary line, so you can't get much out of them unless you re-apply a Shout or Chant to renew them.Aggressive Refrain - Echo.
For 5...25 seconds, you attack 25% faster. This Echo is reapplied every time a Chant or Shout ends on you. (Leadership)
So I tried to use IaFW as my spamming Shout since it has no recharge and only costs 5E. The Shout works (you can see the text on screen) but it doesn't reapply my Echoes. Shouldn't this work like I want? It's -5E spamming every 5s plus a constant Deep Wound while using up your elite slot - so it isn't a "free" abuse of the system mechanics that has no penalty.
What do you guys think? A Shout's a Shout, even if instantly starting and stopping, right? I'm following the rules of the description on the Echoes as far as I can tell.
