What about below 349? Do you remember the point at which it changed to 2.5k and what it changed from?

Nice topic, thank you for the information. This will help a lot.

Yes, if you can remember what kind of progress was being made between 300 and 350, that would be awesome :3 ^^

Will change to 400 soon-ish, assuming we don't already have it and the path to 400 is supposed to be that slow.

They will raise the softcaps with the Ocean patch for sure, or at the very latest the Kamasylve patch. Unless they expect we disconnect Valencia and Media altogether when those patches hit live.

Im at 295cp and it takes about 700 or 800 tradeins from cooking for 1 cp.

And arent you better off just keeping on those items until they raise the cap? I mean I get about 200-250 tradeins with 900 beer crafts. With my current cooking speed I need about 20 minutes for this. So for 10k I would need to craft 36000 times beer or rather 800 minutes for a single cp.

Assuming that they will raise the cap, yes you would be better off holding to the items for now.

I'm at 302 CP and would like to know how much trade ins i need to reach 350 doesn't have to be exact just a rough estimate would be awesome.

As to holding on to the trade ins: It makes sense only when u reached 350 CP because even when they raise the cap the amount you need to get CP from 301 and up will stay the same they would just lower the CP-Exp needed for 350+

at 350 cp it now takes 10k dishes turn ins per cp it was about 2.5k for 349 to 350

Oh wait until you hit 351. I exchanged 1785 dishes and got barely 1/5 the way to 352. Estimated to be 100000 contribution xp for 352.

And to everyone else, unless you are at 351+ keep turning in those items. Once they raise the cap all they do is reduce the required number for 351+ but the curve before remains unchanged (was the same with 301 before)

This plain out needs to change, once you hit the first softcap 250 (not sure why we have one at 250 and another at 300) it should be treated like either guild points and give 2 per level or like skill points and give 3 per level, or the softcap needs to be 100 x territory released with how crazy some of the node/subnode costs are (not counting houses/sea nodes).

There is no soft cap at 250 and 300. There maybe a little bump when it comes to experience required, but its not a cap. The one and only soft cap atm is at 351.

I would defiently call it a soft cap when the rate at which you obtain CP drops by 75% or somesuch as in it takes 4 times longer to get your next CP.

 

An example of a soft cap from another game would be the critrate stat that went linear to 440 and from 440 to 660 the crit rate increase per point was halved.

Example: 440 = 44% crit chance. 660 = 55% crit chance.

There is a softcap at 255. Just got to 255 today and from that point on it took like forever (compared to before) to bring to CP exp bar up.

My cp is at 312. I need to turn in about 1500 dishes (or alchemy stuff) to gain 1 cp. So, this is double than the previous step, which was about 750 dishes for up to 300cp(?), and the next step (up to 349 as OP says) is double again (2500-3000 dishes). I just want to know the point at which this happens (somewhere between 301 and 349 apparently). I guess I ll make a ton of beer and find out soon.

You know what a cap is? Its like something thats at the top. You cant have multiple caps and when you need 100000 contribution xp (or 1000-2000 dailies) for 1 cp you will understand, that 250 and 300 is a bump in the road.

I estimated it to be 10000 dishes for 351 -> 352.

Hence the term "soft cap". None of the steps are "caps" since you can pass them but they are all points of diminishing returns.

There are hardcaps, and softcaps.
In BDO hardcaps from what i know are limited to str/breath/health. Somwhat, PEN can aslo be considered a hardcap.
There is no "real" definition for softcap... it may be described as the level a bonus becomes so much limited it becomes negligible. in BDO, i suppose we can talk about softcap for everything that is "experience" related. When you hit 55, there is a softcap as the exp needed to reach next level is greatly increased. We may also use softcap term for the CP.
There is no issue in saying there are multiple sofcaps here. ~250 is one, ~300 second, and ~350 the third.
There is no need to start flamming the post about a definition ^_^
