Nashkel Store no longer has Large Shields +1

They used to have 5 of them, and now they have none.

They were one of the few nice goodies you can steal.

Do we know if this is intentional or a bug? I noticed the Friendly Arm Inn has unenchanted Large Shields now, where they used to only go up to Medium Shields, so maybe they've just been tweaking the store goods.

    this seems to be intentional, you can go to taerom and still buy a large shield +1 there, and i think feldpost's inn has one as well.....? i recall there being 2 of them before bg the city and i want to say both of them are in beregost

    Can you steal from any of those merchants? There are precious few places to steal quality enchanted goods. It'll be a real nerf to the pickpocket skill if it can't get you some good early game shields anymore.

    nope, but that doesnt necessarily mean pick pocket is moot though, there are still quite a few NPCs that you can pick pocket items from that make the skill useful, plus the normal large shields are only 1 AC lower than their magical counter parts, plus perhaps one reason why they get rid of all those large shields +1 is because the merchant guy right outside of durlag's tower will buy stolen goods and he is easy to access

    or at least that is what my guess is

    I don't think there are enough quality stealable good that they should just be removing big stuff like this.

    That merchant was one of the only merchants you can steal from, and that shield was his only good worth stealing.

    There are a couple of reasons why we ultimately concluded this was a typo in the store listing and not intentional.

    • The Nashkel store sells no other magical items.
    • It sold non-magical shields of all types except large shields, and then inexplicably sold +1 large shields.
    • Multiples of magical items (save ammo) are rarely for sale in a shop, much less this stack of five at the Nashkel store. As a point of comparison the Thunderhammer Smithy has three magical shields total (one each small, medium, large).
    I guess that makes sense, and that shield isn't really like dramatically gamechanging or anything, but I wish there was more cool stuff to steal/pickpocket.

    I think it should probably sell ONE large shield +1. Let the store have something distinctive.
