Warden Gambit Chains

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Wardens can execute a series of Gambits sequentially to bolster the effects of the final Gambit. This is called a Gambit Chain. Gambit Chains begin with a short 2-step Gambit and finish with a longer Gambit called the finishing skill or finisher. All Gambits in the Chain must be completed in order within the allotted duration in order to receive the buff to the finishing skill.

In the case where there are multiple finishers available in a Gambit Chain, only one can be executed in a given chain, as it will consume the finishing blow effect.

Power Attack Gambit Chain

Although technically not a Gambit Chain, this sequence does buff Gambits when performed in order and is therefore included for completeness.

Precise Blow/Throw Gambit Chain

Although technically not a Gambit Chain, these two sequences are mentioned in some Warden traits and are therefore included for completeness.
Unlike a true Gambit Chain, using the skills in order does not provide any bonuses.

Although technically not a Gambit Chain, this sequence does debuff the target when performed in order and is therefore included for completeness.
Each step of the Chain increases the -% Outgoing Damage Buff on the target.
