i understand your problem.
You have a few options here.
1) cheat , use artmoney change running speed to 200 done. (but i really hate this method, done it once and this great game was instantmy boring because lack of challenge)
2) Use the bindstones as much as possible it helps a lot.
3) you get equipment that makes you run faster. I used stormrunner a lot together with the ring of master rogues wich add another 5%. Total i ran was 115%
You can notice it on longer distances.
4) Instead of staring at your screen , build your base , add defence organize your inventory and plans...
for the rest not a lot of wayz to speed up. I didn't find a rune warrior with boons , aura of fast walking so couldnt try that one
I didn't even think to cheat. Heh. Solution found. :)
