In PvP, you earn one Action Point every time your PvP Rank goes up. These Action Points are used to unlock PvP Actions. Each action costs 3 AP (Upgrades to the Traits cost 5 and 7 AP) and thus you can unlock up to 10 PvP actions at the maximum rank of 30.

Chocobo companions also use AP, starting with 1 AP when you first unlock companion summoning, and earning AP equal to each rank you attain when you reach it (rank 2 = 2 AP, Rank 3 = 3 AP, etc). These AP are used to unlock chocobo skills and traits.
