I have been researching my question for a week now and, simple a question though it may be, I keep reading answers that are pulling me in different directions, so I finally decided to just ask. Here goes.
In D&D 4e, 1st level characters get 2 At-Will powers, 1 Encounter power, one Daily power, and one feat. I understand that. But then there are Class Features.
My question is, do Class Features count against those numbers above? Or do you get your Class Features at no cost, and then choose your 2 At-Wills, 1 Encounter, and 1 Daily?
Does a Level 1 Paladin automatically take Lay on Hands (At-Will), Divine Challenge (At-Will) and Channel Divinity (Encounter), and in addition to those class features, choose 2 more At-Wills, 1 more Encounter, 1 Daily and 1 Feat?
Does the Level 1 Paladin take Lay on Hands and Divine Challenge as his 2 Level-1 At-Will powers, and Channel Divinity as his level-1 Encounter power, in which case all that's left is to choose 1 Daily and 1 Feat?
