Nothing has changed regarding SGRA......well the last time we heard something was the "It will happen 'this year'" comment at the guild summit..........so does that mean that we'll actually have it in the next 3 months? If so, sweet!
They also said it would come when they started doing story expansion and that there probably wouldn't be many, if any, official comments about it until it was implemented. I've gotten the impression that a lot of people think this is a pretty stupid view, but I think we'll probably see SGR as part of the Mekab content. So, we can probably expect it whenever Patch 1.5 comes out.
