I'm tired of all these quest that only give 10 EXP at a time.

I've just been doing the chimney sweeping/crate moving dailies in Calpheon, as well as the Mansha/Rhutum dailies on the road to Trent from Calpheon. I'm up to 80 contribution and I haven't done a single quest leveling up other than black spirit quests. Just dailies.

I have 98 Contribution Points currently, All from quests between Olvia and Glish.

I only have that much because I keep leveling new classes and enjoying them. Except Ranger... Ranger is a bit boring.

I'm constantly out of contribution points.  Between activating all nodes, horse ranches, shipyards, workshops, storage, etc., they disappear faster than I can earn em'.

I found that the life skill quests are giving a decent amount now and there seem to be a lot of them.

Roll an alt and re-run the quests ... the XP stacks even though you already did them with your main.

I'm doing every single quest ... kinda crazy, but I somehow like it.... and If you're making beer for your workers, you sometimes make also a dish - you can exchange 5 of them for a CP

 

"Dish with poorly prepared ingredients"

There is a daily quest guide I think on BDfoundry. Do the Calpeon quests every day. They give you about 1 CP if you do all of them. (a full bar)

I'm lazy so I just brew a ton of beer which I need anyway and turn in the scraps for contribution points. I get 2 CP a day sometimes that way. Currently at 150. I stopped ding the Calpheon quests at about 120, was getting boring. So the last 30 or so CP i got have been from the byproduct of making beer. :)

I'm tired of all these quest that only give 10 EXP at a time.

I have currently 280+ CP and i did it the slow way by doing quests etc... (dont know exactly what i got as im not logged in atm)

IF you wanna fast track CP then spam the hell out of alchemy by producing "PURE POWDER REAGENT" & "CLEAR LIQUID REAGENT" this gives you tonnes of CP EXP tokens to cash in. 

Im level 56 so i have access to both Calpheon dailies, Mediah dailies, but i havent done any of the Valencia Dailies as of yet and if i did i would be getting tonnes more CP.

OH and i forgot, you can also cash in more CP EXP if you feel like farming for "WEEDS" and cashing them in to "Lara" in Heidel as well.

2 links that ive followed for ages now:

 

On that vid i only do the dailies from manshas to rhutums only.

 

 

This one is hands down best video for calpheon dailies that require no monster killing and is fairly fast. The OP who amde that video goes through every direction clearly where you have to go so if youre a newcommer it helps a lot. First it took me 25 minutes to finish calph dailies and then it went down all the way to 10 min cause the route was memorized.

 

So by doing mansha/rhutum dailies amongst with calpheon dailies i get up to 2 contribution points a day for around ~25 minutes of questing. So far ive liked it and am now sitting on 278 CP.

Fastest way to get CP is crafting thousands of beer or alchemy reagents, than handing in bonus items. Five of them is 50 CP.

Also make sure to grab daily quests that gives CP, especially the ones that gives 200+.

I have 304 CP at the moment and it's just painfully slow at that point, because or soft caps. Happy if I can make 1 CP a week :S

I have noticed that quests in valencia provide a lot of CP xp compared to other regions. It might be worth doing all the quests in valencia? including dailies.

Just unlock the many daily quests in Valencia City. Better than the Calpheon tour.

Ignore those calpheon video guides for now (unless you are low level and have bad gear). If you have decent gearscore and lv56+, go to valencia. Do every quest you find there. Go to every region/node and do the quests. Every quest in Valencia provides between 300-1,000 CP each and there are a ton of them. Do your black spirit quests too. Go to your quest log > suggested tab and do every suggested quest chain available, they all provide a shit ton of CP and rewards. Do the quests in valencia city, they're way better than calhpeon. When farming at Sausans (or anywhere) make sure you do all the daily quest in the area too. Do the same thing in Media. This region also provides much more CP than the lower level zones.

Once you do all this and you don't feel like traveling across the desert every day then go spam the dailies in calpheon for a month. Easy city to get to but there is much better sources of CP than calpheon nowadays. have 318CP myself.

Rhutums>Manshas>Catfish
Calpheon Daily in video as shown above.
Olvia Gathering and Alchemy quests
This will net you 6 CP a day. I have 300 cp now. You can also do afk cooking and alchemy for more CP points. You can get easily 8-10 a day.
However, you won't make much money.
