Watermark in HWS for shields is stuck

  • What is your character name in New World: Ilxuss
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Pollux
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: HWM for my shields aren’t working. I’ve dropped many shields, which should increase my watermark, but they always have 500 gearscore. Overally my watermarks vary between 505-550 but not for shields - whenever they drop they have 500 gearscore. It never increases
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: I can’t increase my watermark for shields - it makes my shield+sword much less useful.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: no
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: Nothing to show really, every time a shield drops that should increase my watermark it has a gearscore of 500
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Farm items, open chests and never get a shield over 500 gearscore.

I got watermark upgrade after the patch. It’s working now.
