"Shouldn't have angered that shop keeper"
Yeah I didn't do ♥♥♥♥, when is this going to get fixed? It's ruined so many of my runs when that ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ shop keep gets mad for NO reason.

Since according to your profile you only have 12.9 hours in the game, have you ruled out indirect action? Indirect actions such as taking the idol and the rolling statue head destroys the old mans dwelling.

It's not a bug. Everything angers the shopkeeper. They removed everything that would be unfair, like cobras and mantraps attacking him. Everything else is part of the game.

A few times it happened there was a cobra in the shop, which made me think that somehow set him off, other times I have no idea. Truly the most annoying thing in the world to drop down in a seemingly safe area only to be shot and killed without warning because of ???.

Happened to me, way too many times already, fix the shoppers, the game is hard, the shoppesr are moronic, I reached a point where I consider ALWAYS stealing from them, at least when I know they're angered they're not too hard to manage. At some point I went into the black market with 57k$, I was just browing a shop, and all of a sudden, shopkeepers decide to oneshot me, I didn't touch anything, ffs.

It doesn't only affect shop keepers sometimes you enter a level and Kali is angry with you for no reason due to something you had nothing to do with.

Seems to happen more on the ice caves then everywhere else.

I think cobra still affects them. I had one of my speedruns ♥♥♥♥ed up cause of that. There was cobra in shop and i didn't see any other possibility for him to be mad.

Suggestion:

Try to get better at learning their behaviors and killing them.

It's true that sometimes no amount of preparation and skill can save you from a shopkeeper getting inadvertently angered just-off screen of you. But if you are above or below them when it happens, you still have a reasonable opportunity to handle them, and then begin stealing from shops.

Doing runs where you murder shop-keeps and steal their wares seems daunting at first, but it's actually one of the better ways to play when you attain enough skill to consistently pull it off.

The shopkeepers get mad if an enemy that can damage the damsel hits her. That doesn't explain why they blame YOU for it, though.
As for the kali issue, that's just a mine going off on her altar and, once again, she blames you for some reason. if it had nothing to do with the player I don't understand why the player gets targeted.

Not without warning. You get a text banner at the bottom of the screen if the shopkeeper gets angry and the music changes if there's an angry shopkeeper going mad nearby. Don't blame the game because you don't pay attention to the information it gives you.

The shopkeeper goes off randomly, it's as if he's always in a dynamite stage with anything setting him off. Once I just went into his shop and he shot me, I had no warnings, nothing.
