If Ritual Magic takes considerably longer than standard magic, it would be a NPC only skill. What good is a skill that takes longer than most encounters be to an adventurer?

Because there are a lot of situations outside combat where it can be useful. Gathering info and resources, travel, etc. Also charms or other 1 use magic items or triggered spell effects.

True but one can get these cheaper with advantages and skills. Eliminating the "combat" spells for the cost of Ritual Magic does not seems a good idea.
