Timelapses are an item that can be purchased in the Ruby Shop. They progress through zones, refresh skill cooldowns, award Gold.png Gold and Hero Souls and fast-forward mercenary quests. You are considered to be idle during a timelapse. There are 4 options:

Duration Cost Maximum number of zones
8-Hour Timelapse 10 Ruby.png Rubies 36k
24-Hour Timelapse 20 Ruby.png Rubies 108k
48-Hour Timelapse 30 Ruby.png Rubies 216k
168-Hour Timelapse 50 Ruby.png Rubies 756k


  • Timelapses should not be used until you reached zone 50k. Once you do, follow the timelapse calculator.

Why do 8-hour timelapses only give 36k zones?

In normal game, if you are at 2 monsters per zone and instakilling with Progression Mode on, then the last frame of every zone is skipped. However, during a Timelapse, the last death animation of every zone is not skipped.


  • In patch 0.17c, Timelapses were introduced, but there was only an 8-hour option, costing 20 Rubies.
  • In patch 1.0e2, Timelapses were reworked to progress through zones.
  • In patch 1.0e10, 8-hour Timelapses were reduced in cost to 10 Rubies, and options for 24-hour and 48-hour timelapses were introduced.
  • The 168-hour Timelapse was added in patch 1.0e11.
