I've noticed that Mojo echo activates off Witchdoctor powers, but Burst Fire does not. I know this isn't a bug, but can someone explain why that is?

Are you asking why Burst Fire does not activate from Witchdoctor powers?

Or are you asking why Burst Fire does not activate from Ranged powers?

Burst fire requires a gun, which means its based on a Musketeer's attack.
Mojo echo is only based on staffy weapons or anything with a staff, so its based on Witch attacks.

Sorry I was being pretty vague. I meant why doesn't Burst Fire activate from Ranged powers.

Ranged powers are not classified as ranged attacks, at least not as far as epic talent triggers are concerned. (And there are some very good reasons players should prefer it that way, which I will let you consider for a bit.)

Musketeers are not intended to function exactly the same as Witchdoctors, and vice versa. There are upsides and downsides to every class, talent, and power.
