D&D4 Wiki

Novice Power is a heroic tier, multiclass encounter feat available to characters who already have a multiclass feat for any class, and are 4th level or above.

When a character gains the Novice Power feat, he or she can give up a leveled encounter attack power from his or her primary class, and replace it with an encounter attack power of the same level or lower from the multiclassed class. The character can't swap paragon path or epic destiny powers with Novice Power.

Each time the character gains a level, he or she can make a different swap, as if he or she lost the multiclassed power, regained the primary class power, then again may swap any leveled primary class encounter attack power for one of the same or lower level from the multiclass.

If a character retrains out of Novice Power, he or she loses the power gained from Novice Power, and gains a primary class power of the same level.[PH:209]
