Activated Abilities

Just wondering whether you can activate creature abilites like gain mana or regenerate during oponents turn? And do you have to announce you are using them at a particular time?
you have to announce that you are activating them
and generally you can activate any ability any time you have priority, unless it says otherwise

At what stages do you have priority? Sorry probably a basic question I realise.
basically whenever something happens players get priority in APNAP order
first the Active Player (the one whose turn it is) gets priority, then the Non-Active Player

when a new step begins, players get priority (after turn-based actions)
when something gets added to the stack, players get priority
when something gets removed from the stack, players get priority

I'd really advise you to go read the basic rulebook (see link in my signature), it really is the minimum rule learning. ;)

The Basic rulebook, read it! A lot of basic questions are answered there!

Type [c]Black Lotus[/c] to get Black Lotus.
Type [c=Black Lotus]The Overpowered One[/c] to get The Overpowered One.
