- "You could spend hours visiting this monument, and when you leave, only minutes will have passed. Your immortal heroes refuse to approach it - but they do not explain why."
Chronos increases the amount of time given to defeat a boss.
Chronos's summon cost is the player's current summon cost.
Chronos's cost per level is 2n, with n being equal to the next level.
All costs except the summon cost can be reduced by Chor'gorloth.
The additional seconds follow the equation:
+seconds to boss fight timers = 30×(1-e-0.034n)×Effect of Orphalas
The table below shows the effect of Chronos at certain levels (without the effect of Orphalas).
- This ancient has the fastest convergence among the ancients whose effect converges, (Atman, Bubos, Chronos, Dogcog, Dora, Fortuna, Kumawakamaru, Revolc, and Vaagur,) which is why this ancient ends up having the lowest level at optimal play, near the late game.
- It effectively maxes out at level 1101.
- Chronos, Ancient of Time, is a reference to the Greek personification of Time (not to be confused with the Titan Kronos). This word is the root of many words having to do with time, such as "chronology", "chronometer", Chrono Trigger and so on.
