  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:

When a player opens an elite chest, there are a series of loot tables that are rolled to determine which loot they receive.

Either because of an omission, or a deliberate design choice, there are no loot tables that point to Shields.

ChestLootEliteItemRoll Is the loot table where weapons/armor and trinkets are determined in an elite chest.

Roll Entry
0 [LBID] Family Weapons
0 [LBID] Family Armor
90000 [LBID] ProcTrinkets

Missing from that table is [LBID] Family Shields.

If this is a design choice, please reconsider. If this is an error, please rectify.
