In-game description: Reduces production time by 20%. Consumed only during production. Duration 18:00.

Function: Reduces 20% of the base production time (this means that a lvl. 1 skill and Dates give together 10% + 20% = 30% reduction), which lasts for 18 hours. Reduction is applied immediately. After Dates have been used, anything set in production in these 18 hours has a reduced production time, unless Dates expire before the production ends. 18 hours is counted only when production is active.
