DCUO - Pedestal with Iceberg Lounge Gem

DCUO rocks. The dev team really listens to its players. The suggestion I made in Aug 27 last year for the large gem found at the end of the Iceberg Lounge solo to be made into a base item has been implemented.

I made this suggestion in the thread "Tell us what Base items you would like to see next!" in the Developer Section of the official forums. The base item "Pedestal with Iceberg Lounge Gem" is a rare drop from Isis, the base pet item which is currently purchasable from the Halloween Event 2017 vendor. Isis costs 100 Spooky Bites.

Anther suggestion which I've made, and was implemented, was: a request for an Orange Aura back in Nov 7 2014.

Way to go, DCUO!

Update (30-10-17):
Gem finally dropped for an alt after about 3-4 days of farming Isis for the gem. Bottom pic is a screenshot of it in my base.

SOTA - Comparing the appearance of crafted 2H swords

Here for the purpose of comparing their appearance, I've put crafted 2H swords: first on the left is Iron, second is White Iron, third is the normal purchasable 2H sword from the blacksmith/combat weapon merchant. Last is the Ornate Flamberge. The White Iron 2H sword was an exceptional item crafted on my first time using the Prosperity Smithing Hammer =)

As you can see in the pic below, the Iron 2H sword is slightly duller looking than the normal 2H sword. The White Iron 2H sword looks the brightest of the three.

In the pic below, from left to right: Normal, White Iron, Iron, Meteoric Iron, Copper.
