I've been playing HoD for a while now and have noticed that it's is almost impossible to get amethyst, one of the key ingredients in leveling up gear from levels 1-7. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to acquire them more frequently through natural game play?
The equation is simple. Win more and spend less.
When I was at low-levels I almost never upgraded items past level 3 for two simple reasons. First it cost too much Amethyst. Second, I'd soon be winning something better.
As for the accumulation task. If you party is strong enough you can often send them to areas I - VI, start the fights when needed and just let them do their thing. Do this over and over while watching TV or doing something else and you'll soon have a little stash.
