I'm on the other side of the fence with this, over the years i have collected so many relics and ixp runes i have been giving them away for the best part of 18 months now. Maybe i'm the exception but with the amount of drops you get from scaled runs i feel like i have them coming out of my ears. I dont feel adding them to Battles would be of benefit, infact adding them would be of detriment to other loot you might want given the upcoming rotation from the existing two "gold" pieces to the previously missing other four. Add to that the possibility of FA symbols and you dilute the loot table more and make the RNG ever harder to play with.
