In BDO, contribution points (CP for short) have important roles such as investing in nodes and workshops and renting equipment from NPCs. In this Black Desert Online contribution points guide, I will go over how to gain contribution points and where to invest them.
- The videos on Youtube are a different UI than the one I see on the PC. I have looked at the in-game setup variations for over an hour, and surfed the Web for over an hour, and I do not see any instructions on how to unlock the quick slots. Before tonight I could see 10 quickslots, but they were grayed out.(locked I guess). I did something tonight that made quick slots 2-10 disappear.
- This is an example of an “end-game” build with best in slot items and PEN items along with the crystals you can use. The build is suitable for any class but you can check our class guides for specifics if you want to double check the crystals.
Open the quest tab and then find where is says inventory quests. If you mean for like slots for like your items in like your lower bar like your numbered slots. Go to UI settings and you can add more in there. Common Controls. Forward – W Left – A Backwards – S Right – D. Jump/Climb – SPACE Crouch – Q (Q to stand again, SPACE to crawl, SHIFT to roll).
What are Contribution Points?
You can think of contribution points as a pool of resources you have available at any time. The beauty of contribution points is that you cannot really spend them. What you do is invest them in certain aspects of the game and you can regain them by withdrawing your investment.

A few weeks later you get either bored with producing whatever the workshop makes or it is no longer profitable. To regain the contribution points you simply need to withdraw the CP as shown in the image below and you have them back in your contribution points pool.

Keeping that in mind, it is clear that you cannot go wrong with how you use your contribution points. If you are unhappy with your choices it is very easy to reverse them. So go ahead and experiment with different uses of your contribution points.
How to Get Contribution Points in BDO.
The only way to increase your contribution points pool is by gaining contribution experience. There are three ways to gain contribution experience. These are completing quests, by doing alchemy and cooking for contribution points. When you gain enough contribution experience you gain a contribution point. The amount of contribution experience needed is small at first but increases as your contribution points pool grows larger.
Questing for Contribution Experience.
At the start of the game, the only reasonable way to gain contribution experience is by completing quests. Almost every quest in Black Desert Online rewards a certain amount of contribution experience. The Black Spirit quests are particularly good for this as you also gain a decent amount of combat experience in addition to inventory slots when going through them.
Daily Contribution Experience Quests.
When you reach level 20 you can start doing daily contribution quests that are reset each day. These quests are generally easy and can be completed quickly. As such they are the fastest way to gain contribution experience through questing. Heidel and Calpheon have a nice availability of daily quests for CP that can be completed rather fast. Below is a video that shows a sped-up single run through the daily contribution quests in Heidel.
Contribution Experience Through Cooking and Alchemy.
When you cook some food or do alchemy you get some by-products in addition to your main recipe. One of these by-products rewards you with contribution experience if you give it to the correct NPC. To find the NPC you just need to right-click on the item and it will set an auto-path for you to follow.
The number of by-products made seems to be independent of what you are making. For cooking, it is therefore probably easiest to make beer to get those by-products, the beer recipe is here. Besides, beer is used as fuel for your workers if you have any. For alchemy, it is probably easiest to make clear liquid reagents or pure powder reagents to get those by-products. This, of course, depends on what herbs you have in your storage. Also, you want to reduce the time you spend cooking and doing alchemy to get as much CP as possible. When you have reached the lowest times this becomes the fastest way to get CP points. To see how you do that check out my cooking and alchemy guides.

What can I use Contribution Points for?
The most common use of contribution points in Black Desert Online is to invest in nodes. The little circles that are spread across your map are these nodes. They are used to connect trade routes and worker nodes to the cities. You should also consider connecting your grinding spots to a town and invest some energy into the node.
To invest in a node you need to visit the node manager of each node and speak with him. Select invest in nodes and you have now invested in this node. To withdraw your investment you just need to open up your map, select the node and press the withdraw button. Note that you can only withdraw investment from nodes that are free of other connections.
If you have an active value pack you don‘t need to travel to the node managers. You can invest contribution points in nodes directly from the map at the cost of 10 energy.
Another use for contribution points is to invest in houses in cities. By investing CP into houses you can, for example, gain more space in your storage, get lodgings for workers and invest in workshops where your workers can produce weapons, armor, and other equipment.
A third and final use of CP is to rent items from NPC‘s. Storage keepers have items that allow you to access the storage from your home, some NPC‘s have special items needed to complete quests and so forth.
So that’s about it for contribution points in BDO. Now if you liked this contribution points guide then be sure to share it with your friends and allies and feel free to check out my other Black Desert Online guides.
