    A further tier "4" or "2 and a half" is possible if i get some ideas.
    I already tried the drawing of a dragon and a demon, both did not match at all.

    I'm not gonna review the other ones because they're crappier. I am, however, going to say that making upgrades like this is meh. If you look at the Blizzard techtree upgrades, you'll notice that it isn't just a simple icon that gets new features with every upgrade, it changes color, shape and everything, but it still stays somewhat the same.

    Now, as for the icon itself, I find the top of the shield to be kinda messy. The horns could look sharper, the shading is a little messed up as well (top right corner is the light source I assume, you might want to make the background brighter up there as well).

    I would like to see another version where you zoom in a little closer to the shield (not TOO much, but a little).

    3.5/5 for now.

    "Take it, Hold it, Love it."

    Guess where that came from.

    I took the liberty of editing your 128x128 image to show you what I mean.

    You could put a light source like I did if you want, but I only really did it to help me do the shading.

    Practically, you simply add a light splash on the top right corner and a dark splash on the lone left down.

    To speak out the words, you advice me to increase the contrast between top right/left down in the shadings and to generally darken it?

    Make some srsbsns shadows on the left and some brightness on the right. Maybe you could try making a little bloom effect on the highlights as well.
