もぉっ!御丁寧に戦国時代なんかにやって来なくていいのに!
I think ''やって来なくていいのに'' is ''if only we don't come...''
御丁寧に is ''carefully''?
If only we carefully not to come to 戦国時代!(?)

~ていいのに indicates something like regret/complaint here - somebody did やってきた but in the speaker's opinion やってきなくていい

やってなくていい;)

In addition to nekojita-san's explanation, it's considered that なんで来たの? or along the line is omitted after やって来なくていいのに.
御丁寧に is a sarcastic usage there, meaning something like "bothered to come to 戦国時代."
