While exploring Tower of Fantasy's massive open world, you may have encountered a Supply Pod or two. These are round mechanisms that you can interact with to open up and obtain upgrade materials and EXP. There are different kinds of Supply Pods in Aida—and you may encounter a few with a peculiar timer on top of them.
Interacting with a Supply Pod with a countdown above it will prompt a repairing data and Estimated Repair Time message. It will then tell you a specific amount of time, which indicates how long you need to wait before you can interact with and unlock the Supply Pod.
Can you skip the Estimated Repair Time?
Unfortunately, there's no known way to skip the Estimated Repair Time in Tower of Fantasy. Some Supply Pods are simply time-gated, so it's best to take note of where they're located and come back after the specified time to loot them.
The Estimated Repair Time will only affect the Supply Pod it's tethered to, and will not cause every other Supply Pod in the overworld to be time-gated. So, while this can break your exploration momentum, you can always explore other parts of Aida and find various Chests and other types of Supply Pods to loot.
