Looking to start Idris, but main problem is the time sink for coalitions. From what I'm seeing, 185 days minimum to get all from rank 1 to 8, assuming you have the items to reduce timer? Is there something I'm missing, or is this the absolute fastest that this can happen?

Yeah, no way around it.

People were enraged when Idris first came out. From "Lawl Coalition who needs that?" to "God fn damit I wish I did them sooner"

Sigh, that's what I was fearing. You'd figure SE would make imp reduction part of the RoV rewards at some point, but I guess not. Thanks.

Sadly it takes a chunk of time but so worth it. You might consider saving up all your imps by spending them on random assignments you won't complete and then when you have a good chunk saved up make it an imp day. I did that about once a week while I was ranking up - made my life a little easier.

I'm assuming you mean the special attack ones?
I had to be pretty much naked for everything through Morimar.

Also: be sure to do EVERY assignment at least once. That's how you get the timer down KIs.

Every single coalitions assignment? So after I finish all coalitions assignment once it just pops on? I don't need to talk to anybody? Thanks

I pretty much gave up in the past since this coalition is so freaking annoying lol

Iirc, for the timer down KIs you will need to speak to speak to Reja Ygridhi once you reached the requirements

Yes every single one of them.

You need to go to the Library to get the Shovel KIs from the Mithra. The KIs sadly don't reduce the timer by a lot but every single minute adds up.

There are 2 different KIs, one that decreases time to next imprinteur and one the increases your amount of imprinteurs.

I don't know which but one of them involves doing every Adoulin quest.

If you end up getting that KI you get legend like 5 or so days earlier if you never lose a tag. In some cases you'll actually lose time or net 0 trying to go back and do every assignment for the KIs depending on how much you got done before you realized you need to do every assignment (this is what happened to me).

edit: I have done the math again cause I can't help myself: With the KI you save 30 mins per tag 40 tags per advisor to legend = 1200 minutes = 20 hours per coalition * 5 coalitions = 100 hours = 4.17 days.
