Action Points are the method by which a character's Daily Powers are recharged. Each character has a gauge represented by a D20 in the middle of their Combat Action Bar. This gauge refills as the character gains more Action Points. When this bar is filled by the attainment of Action Points, a character's Daily Power is available for use. The use of a character's daily power depletes this gauge and a character must once again perform actions which grant Action Points to refill it.

According to the in-game tool-tips, each class can earn Action Points as follows:

  • Barbarian - Dealing damage and using encounter powers
  • Cleric - Healing or dealing damage
  • Fighter - Taking or dealing damage and using encounter powers
  • Paladin - Attacking foes and casting spells.
  • Ranger - Dealing damage and using encounter powers.
  • Rogue - Dealing damage
  • Warlock - ???
  • Wizard - Dealing damage

However, the tool-tips are misleading. For instance, Guardian Fighters can gain Action Points from blocking attacks, but do not gain Action Points from taking unguarded damage unless they have the [Martial Mastery] paragon feat.
