    You more than likely picked up a shield that way lying on the ground when you were running around naked looking for your corpse. This would have left the stormshield in a second corpse, on the ground.

    When the game exits, your corpses are evaluated and the one with the highest cost is saved. All others all discarded. Because the sum of your equipment minus SS was more than SS on it's own, the corpse with the SS on it was lost to battle.net. If that is the case, there is no way to retrieve it.

    Sorry

    This could also happen if you depend on other items you are wearing to pick up your SS and when you tried picking up your body for the first time you didn't have space in your inventory so that SS was left on the corpse, and didn't go to your Inventory.

    When you lose an item like this it is gone forever. Sorry for your loss. To avoid this in the future make sure you always have enough STR to carry your heaviest item, 156 for Stormshield. Also make sure you have enough inventory space (enough to hold a spear-size item) so that just in case you do not have enough STR, the item will go to your inventory. If you should ever die again and are worried about losing an item, don't leave the game until you have retrieved all your corpses.

    just the other day i lost a pair of marrowwalks this way. i needed the +str from my ammy to wear them, and when i died, i picked up everything but the boots. i didn't realize it until i joined another game. i think the easiest way to fix it is with +str charms. since they never leave your stash when u die, u always have the +str bonus when you grab ur body. i learned a lesson but it was somewhat painful.

    From what I've been told, you don't have to always have enough Str to wear your items. If you die, log out of game and start a new private game so you can pick up your body. Just make sure that you never die twice in one game. I could be wrong however but this is what I do.
