What Does ‘Estimated Repair Time’ on Chests Mean?

When you come across a chest that shows the ‘Estimated Repair Time’ message on a chest, it simply means that you cannot open it until the time shown has elapsed, so in the example below, you’d need to wait 62 hours until you can open that chest.

If you try and interact with the chest, it’ll say “… Repairing data… Estimated repair time: 62h 18m” so unfortunately there’s nothing you can really do but wait it out.

It’s worth noting that the time listed above each chest is unique to that particular one. In other words, the repair time will be different for each one that you come across.

Can You Skip Estimated Repair Time in Tower of Fantasy?

Unfortunately, no, you can’t skip the estimated repair time for a chest. There’s no microtransaction option you have to speed up the time, nor is there any other mechanic that we’ve stumbled upon during our time in the game so far that enables you to completely eliminate the repair time wait altogether.

Instead, you just need to sit patiently and wait for the timer to finish.

If developer Perfect World introduces a means to reduce this wait time, we’ll be sure to update this post and let you know.
