It really does depend on the rooting process for you phone and how much you understand when given the steps.
For example, my Galaxy S3 took me maybe an hour to root. That's including the ~30 minute download time of the large file I needed, reading the steps, and doing the steps. However, when you look at a phone like the Note II it took me ~10 minutes because the download files were tiny and I understood the process.
Then consider the HTC Droid DNA. That one took me about an hour, and 45 minutes of that was understand wtf I had to do. It required a bunch of adb commands to get things rolling through. Prior to the DNA I only had a basic understand of what adb was, but now I understand how and why's it's used. Next time that process would likely take me 10-15 minutes.
The Droid X... that took about 5 minutes to root. It was so simple. So, it'll vary from phone to phone and how much you know. I would say only do it if you've got a solid 2 hours to dedicate to it because if you f*ck something up you may need more time fixing it to get it running again (unrooted at that, which I've had happen before, not fun).
Thanks for the help guys, unfortunately I lost my phone so I guess this isn't really necessary anymore. $800 bucks left to pay out, spwein.
