Crafting Points, or more commonly known as CP are rewarded whenever you or a friend hammers on any craft or fusion.
The amount of CP rewarded directly depends on your hammer. The CP is cumulative and for every 10 CP you get, it equals 1 quality onto your sword.
Increasing the amount of CP you have on each sword is the best way to ensure you get a high ranking sword.
That said, the amount of CP you can have on your sword is directly related to your Mastery level. It can range from a max of 100 CP to a max of 250 CP.
You are also rewarded with 1 Sword Dust whenever you reach a certain number of CP every week. As such, this tally is reset every week.
The sword dust is rewarded at; 50, 150, 300, 500, 1k, 2.5k, 5k, 10k, 30k, 60k CP & 100k.
