How to get better equipment?

I was just wondering what the easiest way to get better equipment might be.  I've gotten random 4* equips from lost island level 5 and that has been about my only source.  I try purging levels to collect shards but it seems the drop rate is insanely low. Just did normal marbuel 5 which uses 7 hope and used near 300 hope on it and only collected 2 shards of the 4* piece.  At that rate it's clearly not worth doing.

Well, I hate to say but probably VIP packages for whole sets, other then that: insane ammount of grinding. Other then that you can increase the power of your existing items by evolving them, but as far as I can tell that will not increase their star count (Though I cannot say for sure, I've evolved an item 7 times, it remained the same 2*, so it's surely not evolving like demon cards)

Yeah I'm only V4 so I'm not gonna be getting VIP packages any time soon, I'm not that rich lol.  I get some ok shards from raid bosses and some good ones from lost island so I suppose I'll just work on my demons and worry about equipment later.

Had another question but didn't want to make a whole new thread for it.  My account name here on the forum is just a bunch of gibberish numbers and letters, why not my in game name?  I log in with the same email and password, I found that odd.

Seems like drop rates went down a lot since they added more purge tickets, 5* shards are insanely rare now...

isnt vip shop the same as arena and lost island shop? as in you only get 5 shards each purchase?

You usually get 5 shards, from purple equipement 1, in VIP shop you buy with Gold, and you need a certain VIP level also to buy stuff

I have found myself in much the same situation.
Shard drops for level 4 gear are, as so accurately described above, insanely low.  At this point I am stuck until further progress is made on many fronts.
I have completed Orias and Hard Surgat but barely scrape through Marbuel 1 with a single demon left.  I can easily complete level 3 of any dungeon, level 4 is a high probability fail situation.  Lost Island varies: 7 or 8 depending on opponents. While I can still do the side events (arena, blood garden, raid, expedition, lost island), story-wise I appear to be limited to farming demon shards and grinding the various Orias levels for the next several weeks while waiting for enough Night Stones to evolve demons higher.

Am I missing something, gear-wise?
