After playing 2 campaigns we realized that we never got any shield at the shop. Not even once.

This is weird. Is this a bug? Maybe it is intentional. If it is a bug how can we let FFG know. We tried to play a sword and shield build and we couldn't find any.

The campaigns definitely DO filter the shop availability based on your current group fame level. You get weaker items earlier, that scale up as you level and get more fame.

I'm fairly certain (?) that I've gotten shields before. But I'll be on the lookout now, just for curiosity sake.

We were offered shields in the shop on our 2nd visit there on our first campaign. Unfortunately we declined them and suffered the consequences.

We've gotten plenty of shields, but we also own a lot of the expansions.

Do you have the core set only?

Also make sure you are seeing the entire market. You can arrow "right" and see more items that do not fit on the screen at once.

No. We have Nerekhall, Lair of Wyrm, Bilehall and four more of the Mosters box sets.

It just seems weird that we NEVER ever got to see any Shield at the shop for two campaigns in a row...

My earlier games have all been with only the base game. But I can say that I have definitely got shields many times from the store.

Having more expansions probably makes it less likely to get shields as in the new items there are more non-shields than shields.

I guess it is a case of very peculiar luck and perhaps some effects from the fame account.

I traded in the city once so far and our group bought Iron shield. My ogre knight uses it, but with defensive training and armor I was not wounded so far (just through conditions). So definitely this item appears in the shop from time to time. You were probably just unlucky.
