In v1.5 if you are Level 1-29, Monsters 3-6 levels lower then your character are significantly easier (Note 1). In BoH, Dungeon Bosses pay the most Silver Coin. If you want to Farm Silver Coin with less Temple Healing and less Health Potions, use these tips.


Where to Farm
Character 3-10: Farm The Fallow Fields, Level 3-4 (Encounter Zone Glenfort Plains Map). Wait until you are 11-14 for easy Farming of Plaguerider's Pass.
Characters 11-14: Farm Plaguerider's Pass, Level 5-8 (Dungeon Zone, Glenfort Plains Map).

Characters 15+: Farm a Dungeon Zone 3-6 levels lower than you. Explore the game or use a desktop computer and search the BoH Forums https://Venan.com/boh_forum/search.php


Use What to Farm
If your gear is Tier 7 or lower, make sure to upgrade your weapon (better damage), helm (better Defense & Stats), chest armor (better Defense & Stats) and Leg Armor (better Defense & Stats) on a regular basis. You should still upgrade everything else, but those are important items to upgrade.

Make sure to shuffle your gems around for best Stat bonus https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1998&p=10134#p10134

Get a Venan ID and play multiple characters. Once you are out of combat, you start healing for free. While one character is healing, play another character. With 5 characters, you are healing 50% per 5 minutes (10% per character per 5 minutes).

Note: Multiple characters also increase your energy. With 5 characters, you get 10 energy per 5 minutes (2 energy per character per 5 minutes). See Dungeon Banking https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=179

If you have at least one Level 25 character, you like BoH. If you start another character, and get to Level 15, consider buying a Soulstrike Armor Bundle (20% discount, 231 Gold Shields). Since it is expensive, you will have to use Real World Money to purchase Gold Shields. Tier 11 Soulstrike Gear is designed for Level 25 Monsters. You will get 250% more Defense and 183% more Stats from any Augment Gems than a Tier 6 Helm (14,925 Silver Coin). The Armor Bundle also includes Chest Armor (*4 Gem Stat Bonus), Helmet (*3 Gem Stat Bonus) and Leg Armor (*3 Gem Stat Bonus) (see shuffling gems above). Since you purchased it with Gold Shields, the Silver Coin you saved from buying Tier 6-9 Armor can be spent on unlocking Gem Slots and purchasing other items.

If you get the Soulstrike Armor Bundle, consider a Tier 11 Weapon for Gold Shields. You will do 264% Damage Per Second than a Tier 6 Weapon (29k- 45k Silver Coin). This will increase all your damage, Basic Attack, Class Attacks, Group Attack Runes, Bleed, Caltrop, Poison Cloud, Burn.


Spending Your Farmed Silver Coin
Use Farmed Silver Coin to help complete Quests (purchase Temple Healing, Temple Potions & better items). Quests pay you Experience Points, Silver Coins and Items in addition to the Loot Drops from Monsters killed during the Quest.

Use Farmed Silver Coin to join your Guild's Raids (purchase Temple Healing, Temple Potions & better items). Raids pay more Experience Points (XP) for each Monster killed, the lower your Level. Ex: Killing the Kraken gets a Level 25 character more XP than a Level 29 character. Raids pay you Valor and Hero Tokens in addition to Loot Drops from Monsters killed during the Raid. Hero Tokens improve you Might Rating and Stats. Valor buys you the best items in the game, Tier 6 items you can use at Level 1 (squire Valor), Tier 10 items that are almost as good as items bought with Real World Money (Soldier Valor), and Sigils that increase your energy bar (squire Valor, Soldier Valor, Knight Valor).

Once you have all Tier 9 (Silver Coin) or Tier 10 (Soldier Valor) or Tier 11 (Gold Shields), you want all Tier 2 (Silver Coin) or better Augment Gems.

One you have all Tier 2 (Silver Coin) or better Augment Gems, you want to unlock the White Gem Slots (Gem Slot D), which cost 125,000 Silver Coin. (Note 2)

Research Note: Generally, if you cannot get into the second highest Raid (Horde of the Goblin King, 11850 Might Rating), Monsters 3-6 levels lower then your character will be significantly easier.

Note 2)
This is generic advice from v1.4, that still applies to v1.5

https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?p=5540#p5540
For free ($0 IAP) characters, the simplest strategy is:
Put your highest Tier Gems in Necklace, Ring, and Torso (*4 Location Bonus). Put your next highest Tier Gems in your 2-Handed Weapon (*4 Location Bonus, skip if no 2-Handed Weapon). Put your next highest Tier Gems in your Helm and Leggings (*3 Location Bonus). Later, this is the order you should unlock Gem Slot D (white).
Get your Sigil of Vigor (Silver Coin).
Get your Squire's Sigil.
If you get 10 Gold Shields from encounter drops, get your Hero's Sigil.
Unlock all colored Gem Slots (Gem Slots B & C. see Location Bonus advice above for order).
If Level 21, get all Tier 8 items.
Get thirty Tier 2 Gems (or better if Dungeon Boss drops a Tier 3 Gem).
Unlock a Gem Slot D (white) and fill with a Tier 2 Gem (or better if Dungeon Boss drops a Tier 3 Gem) until all ten Gem Slots D (white) are full. (See Location Bonus advice above for order).
Get your Soldier's Sigil.
Get all Tier 10 items (Buy with Soldier Valor. See advice below for buying order).
Get all Tier 3 Gems.
Get your Knight's Sigil.
Get all Tier 11 items (Knight Valor see below advice for buying order).
Get all Tier 4 Gems.
Reminder: The above is a simplification. It does not touch on all issues such as characters with more than one Tier of Items (Ex: Tier 8 items & Tier 10 items mixed), Squire Valor, Haste vs. Crit, Magic vs. Melee, and a gazillion other considerations.

A little out dated, but not too much.
