The upgrades to the shield would replace the wood and in the recipe with copper, diamond, and netherite, and in addition, to more durability and blocking power, they would also give more protection from charging ravagers, which can destroy normal shields with ease.
There would also be upgraded crossbows, of which would switch the tripwire in the recipe with the iron ingot, and the string with where the tripwire used to be, and put either copper or iron in the place of the string. The first upgrade would be called the Heavy Crossbow, and would do more damage, but shoot slower. It would use the aforementioned recipe with the iron modifier. The second update would be the Autocrossbow, and would do damage between the Heavy Crossbow and the Crossbow, and durability superior to both. Another advantage would be being able to fire at twice the rate. It would use the same recipe as the Heavy Crossbow except it would use the copper modifier.
I think this would add more depth to combat and would balance out the many different variants of armor and tools.
