My bet would be just continue with the hc blue shield, you should be fine for LFR with that. Depending on how the rest of your gear looks, I'd try to find a pug for one of the earlier raids to get more shots at a shield. Kinda sucks that you can craft weapons all day long, but no shields at all
There is a crafted level 476 pvp shield available as well as an epic shield from Mistweaver Ai on the Timeless Isle. However, I believe the ilvl 498 pvp shields are available for honor which you could easily grind up in a day or so I think. The crit won't help you, but the mastery is at least useful.
Which LFR have you been going to, by the way? Or have you been hitting MV and ToT?

I haven't seen a shield drop in any sort of raid with my paladin AND my warrior until I had killed lei shen normal (~15 weeks after release of 5.2), including extra rolls. one ID after that I rolled tortos' shield. same ID, primordius dropped his. again, in the same ID (second kill then) lei shen dropped his.
and yes, I was raiding T14 content from the beginning to the end.
soooo... yeah, go for that 476 PVP one and continue praying to the RNG gods.

Ilvl i just about the only thing that counts on shield due to how it affects the massive amount of armor you get from it - especially since the stats on a shield are really low (=> armor gain completely dwarfs it). And well... due to how strong armor is the shield is one of the most important gear slots to upgrade.
