@agentCGBSpender I suspect this is intentional, as we will only have the EoR cata for a week, and only have the 3 arenas. Not being able to add so much time makes the cataclysm stay at a similar time to complete as a stronghold and give similar rewards for teams that are efficient. The runes still give points. In general, I’m not surprised that they tweaked a few things, we will need to discover what will maximize points again. That sounds more fun than just doing the same thing as before.

Wish they’d added the cata missions back tho, I feel those wild have been fun for new players.

Why does Faye still say, "that bought you some time..." etc when you get a time rune if it was meant to be intentional?

@agentCGBSpenderA dev responded that this is indeed a bug and being worked on. Personally I wish the runes stayed points only... more time wil just make the rage over 'noobs' heading straight to Vara after 3 arenas.

You want bugs to stay in the game?

@agentCGBSpender No, I just think, if the cata is going to remain with 3 arenas only, that having the rune time extensions are needed. Sometimes a bug can become a feature! Isn’t that traditional in most kinds of programming? 😂

@DrBonifarz wrote in another topic:

With the Season of Skulls variant of the cataclysm in this week's rotation of seasonal content, I saw the time runes are finally working again.

 

I hardly played the cata when it was in the rotation last time, so maybe these are old news. Still good to see this has been addressed, thanks for that!

Just an FYI, time runes still don't work in Cataclysm right now (August 11, 2020). Got my Grabbit ears finally, and we noticed that the runes do not add time.
