Improvements on the metal thing of the saurian staff. I consider it done, but if anyone could point me how to improve it further I'll continue to work on it.

Also some new stuff on the golden sceptre. Dolphins and a top bluish jewel.

As always if anyone wants to try to edit those feel free to share the results.

I think the green glowing ring is not centered on the jewel. I think it should go a little left and up.

The dolphins are a nice idea, but they make the top of the scepter look too fragile. Maybe they could go around the handle.

I made fireclaws icon for the PoS brazier creation, and then fire breath one to make it work for the fire guardian.

I've FINALLY committed the two War Blade attack icons from way back down in this thread. We could still use a few more drake attack icons:

War Talon - three-bladed version of the War Blade, used by the clasher line and the blademaster.
Battle Claws - standard claws, but with an armoured gauntlet over the top, and the claws reinforced with metal blades.

I like them, but in my opinion they are too "sharp". High contrast makes fire breath extremely hot, so maybe it's good.

The black outlines look bad, especially on the scaled down version.

Otherwise, very nice. :)

Maybe more contrast to the ornaments on the wrist?

It seems to me that the shading on the wrist and the shading on the blades is not in agreement. I would suggest lightening the shading of the inner curve of the blades.

Other than that, it looks quite awesome.

Thanks for suggestions. I tried to make some improvements (I'm not sure, if this is exactly what you want):

That looks great, but I was talking about more towards the base of the blade on the inner curve.

They need to be longer and a little thinner, but that's certainly along the right lines. Nice work =)

Also, a good deal brighter down the inside edge - remember, they're sharp down the inside, blunt down the outside.

Needs some sharpening up (particularly in terms of definition around the fingers), but otherwise, looks fine.
