Level four is worse than level three.  AnyDice is a neat website that can help you visualize what you're trying to do.

How do you figure?  Say you do a level 4 roll, 3d6 and you get some value.  Now, convert it to a level 3 roll by rolling 1d6 more.  If it is lower than the highest of the original 3 dice, you drop that higher one and take the lower roll.  That is, adding that extra die can only reduce the value.

Consider taking it to the extreme:  If level X were "Roll 1000 d6 and take the lowest three of the rolls."  That will nearly always have a value of 3.

(Maybe the OP has edited since getting your feedback?)

To OP, your jump from level 1 to 2 is kind of steep.  Perhaps Level 1 is "Roll 2d6 and keep the better one."

Yessir, the edit cleaned up the oversight.
