Vikings: War of Clans is an empire-building game with tons and tons of timers. Almost everything you can do in game will take some amount of time, particularly if you are playing for free. Here are some tips to help speed some of those timers up:
Open chests of Loki
In the bottom right corner of the screen of Vikings, there is a treasure chest with a bird skull on it. This is a chest of Loki, and opening it can grant you bonuses, including time boosts.
Throughout the day, the amount of time between chest opens increases, but if you keep at it, you can earn several time boosters to help speed up your production.
Join a clan
As part of Vikings's social component, players can form up into clans so that they can protect each other and attack others. Joining a clan has an added bonus though: clan members can actually help you research tech, upgrade buildings, and train units faster.
If you're able to join a clan early, you should be able to get quite a bit of time knocked off of long tasks.
Max your pipeline
At any given time, you can have four tasks being accomplished at once (upgrade/build buildings, train military units, personal tasks, and research new technology). As a result, you should check into Vikings pretty often to make sure you always have at least one task of each type being accomplished to maximize efficiency.
Boost with 5 minutes
Many tasks in Vikings can be boosted to completion for free provided their task timer is under the five minute mark. If you check in on your village and see that any of your tasks are almost done, see if you can go ahead and boost them freely to start a new task.
Five minutes might not sound like much of a benefit, but it adds up over time, which can allow you to advance much more quickly without having to rely on boost power ups or your clan too much.
