Warden Gambit Chains

From Lotro-Wiki.com

Overview

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.
