Combat power or CP is a measurement of your character’s strength. It is the accumulation of all your gearslevelenhancementsskill level and more.

Weapons and Gears

One way to increase your CP is by enhancing your gears but make sure to check the base AP (Attack Power) or DP (Defense Power) of it. Take note that in order to get the best base stats together with a substat (which will be discussed later on), you need the highest rarity item. In Black Desert Online, there are different rarity level when it comes to weapons and gears.

Rarity Level: (Highest to Lowest)
  • Red – Abyssal
  • Orange – Mythic
  • Yellow – Epic
  • Blue – Rare
  • Green – Uncommon
  • White – Common

In these different rarity levels, you can also get different types of substats to contribute more on your character’s strength.

Substats:
  • Attack Speed
  • HP
  • MP
  • MP Regen
  • Movement Speed
  • Crit Chance

Accessories

Each type of accessories gives you different types of stats and substats. Make sure to pick the best stats for your character.

  • Ring (Defense)
  • Bracelet (Defense)
  • Belt (Attack)
  • Necklace (Attack)
  • Earrings (Attack)

Relic

Another one that contributes to your CP is the Relic. You can rent these relics from the Relic Merchants located in different towns. When renting a relic, note that these are random and it varies between towns. Rarity levels are also available for relics so pick the best one.

Outfits and Costumes

Most of us know that when it comes to customizing our character’s outfit, you need to spend some money but in this game you can get it for FREE! Outfits can be crafted in your own camp at Dye Workshop but before you can build this building you need to finish the Ogre Campaign specific to Uraka.

Crystals

Put the crystals in the empty slots of your character’s weapon and gears.

Remember that there are 2 types of crystals, one of these adds to your CP while on the other handnit will increase your attacks and other bonus stats but but not your CP.

Black Spirit

Enhance your black spirit by feeding your extra equipments and accessories from drops and quests. The higher the rarity you feed to your black spirit the higher experience will be given. Condense Dark energy is also fed to the black spirit which will be get during the game or story line

Light Stones

Lightstones plays a part on increasing your CP just look for ATK or DEF stats. HP Stats and the like doesn’t add to your CP.

Character Level

The higher character level the higher stats also will be given.

Character Skills

Some of you already thinking those cool skills but these Active Skills who deals great damage doesn’t affect your CP instead Passive Skills are the contributor for increasing your CP. Increase these skills by getting passive skill books from the following:

  • Loots
  • Quests
  • Bargain NPC in different towns
  • Daily Mileage Shop
  • Talish’s Shop

Books Collection – Knowledge

Collect different books to obtain bonuses that will add up to your Combat Power.

Boss Knowledge

The more you fight a boss the more knowledge you get from it. Complete these and you will get points to increase your CP.

Monster Knowledge

The goal here is to make all locations in your map get a 100% knowledge and from completion it will give you bonuses. Take note that the chance in getting a knowledge from killing a monster is low so better get ready to fight a large number before getting it.

Gear Resonance

When you enhance all your gears to a certain level you will get an additional stats and one example of this is the Attack attribute.

Combat Power (CP) Bonus Effects

When your character attains a certain number of CP, a bonus will be given for a certain stats.
