      There is also an "organic shield" with a very distinct shape that you can get from the wood woads I believe.

      • There's another metal shield under the bridge of Mountain Pass, where you meet the Githyanki Patrol. It's just a skin, Armour Class +2.

          Where you first meet the Gith's and the Dragon there is a big broken bridge. If You turn the camera around and look under the broken bridge there is a metal shield hiding under it you can grab easily.

            I found a "Wooden Shield" (not a studded shield) in the shape of the Metal Shield (it was in the Underdark as soon as you leave the temple's gate). Same stats as everything else, though.

              there's also a metal shield at display on the goblin camp. Behind the goblin seller. Same stats but is the best looking one in game. Its almos impossible to steal it without having to kill everyone in the courtyard. BUT if you move it without stealing it, the goblin seller will say something like: "DONT TOUCH THAT" and will pick it up from the ground. THEN it will be available to buy. :D

                Missing metal shield, found on the ground at the goblin trader on the outer goblin camp. It has a nice model but is otherwise identical, AC 2, requires shield proficiency, common quality.
