Ok, so I was actually looking in the PhB for this answer and couldn't find it. I saw next level we get another encounter power. Do encounter powers work that you can use each encounter power you have every encounter, example like next level at 3rd level we will get 2 encounter powers every encounter? Or do we still only get 1 encounter power per encounter and we just have a choice between the 2 at 3rd level

Good question. I assumed it meant we get 2 Encounter power uses per encounter, but now that I think about it I'm not sure. Does it mean we can use 1 power twice in an encounter? Does it mean we can use 2 separate powers once each in an encounter? Does it mean we simply have two powers to choose from, but can still only use one encounter power per encounter?

PHB Page 27

7. Power
...
Encounter Attack Powers: At 1st level, selcet one power from the list of 1-st level encounter powers in your class description. At 3rd and 7th levels, you learn a new encounter power of your level or lower.

That is all I saw; I would say that you can use any encounter power once per encounter. My real basis is that later there are monsters that have multiple encounter powers and it is just described as use this once per encounter not, only use 1 power once per encounter.

So with that you will have multiple powers that can each be used once per encounter.

THe only strange part to me about getting to use only one encounter power per encounter is that lets say we are like 19th level, monsters will have like 150-200 hp (I am assuming here) but this means the bulk of our attacks will still come in the form of 1d6 and 1d8 at will powers that don't increase until 21st level. Encounter powers usually do more damage, and of course daily powers, but if we only have one encounter power at higher levels it seems like our damage output is going to be very low. Whereas if we get say 3 encounter powers by 19th level then there is still a decent amount of damage that can be done.

I think you might be misunderstanding. At 19th you will have three encounter powers. Let's call them Fuck Me, Fuck You, and Fuck Them. That means that in any given encounter you can fuck me, you, and them, in any order you like. You can not fuck me twice, nor can you fuck you three times. You can only fuck each way once, but you get to use all three. Does that make things obscenely clear?

Yeah the real answer is on the table of character development towards the beginning of the book. It shows that at level 3 you will be able to have 2 encounter powers the level 2 shows you have your first utility power etc. Hope that helps make things more clear.
