Based on a recent question about knowledge checks, I started wondering what kind of action Knowledge Checks were. The compendium doesn't seem to state it for monster knowledge checks (but, e.g. detect magic checks are a standard action). Are they Free, Minor, or Standard actions?

No action is required

From the Rules Compendium pg 130.

Action: No action.

A character either knows or doesn't know the information.

  • @waxeagle - several bits are, hence why I carry my RC most everywhere :) – Pat Ludwig Apr 16 '12 at 18:21
  • They do want you to buy that Compendium, after all. ;) – Jadasc Apr 19 '12 at 22:12
