If I remember correctly you're using Arcane. In this case I have the following suggestions:
I've made some improvements to quadratic solver in the last few days that should give an improvement in the order of 3-5x, so either wait for that to come live or build locally.
Give WPF version a try if you can build yourself, it may be a bit rough around the edges, but it's worth for the extra speed gain.
As far as option settings go, I would suggest changing Mirror Image to disabled and Flame Orb to averaged if you don't have it already. If you're willing to lose on accuracy you can also try disabling mana segmentation in advanced options, but I wouldn't
advise this other than for rough comparisons.
You might also notice that some particular gear/buff combinations take shorter/longer to solve. I've noticed specifically that as your mana situation gets better (in particular at the point where it's optimal to use just a combination
of mana neutral mix and AB spam) it seems to get easier to solve so one thing to make sure is that you have all buffs selected. If you notice that a particular gear set is causing extra long times compared to otherwise it's also possible
there is some numeric instability bug in the solver somewhere that's causing problems. In that case I'd need to see the specific character to see what is causing problems.
EDIT: Actually I just checked, the big speed increase was already in v4.0.13, so if you haven't noticed any change it must be something else.
