LotRO Warden Guide



This is just a basic gamit guide for the Warden class. If you are looking for an in-depth leveling and strategy guide up to level 60, I recommend this Warden Guide.



Patrolling at the edge of firelight, the vigilant Wardens of the lands of Middle-Earth protect fragile civilization from that which lurks in the Wild. The Warden is a quick and cunning skirmisher, brandishing spear and shield with guile and fore-swearing heavy armors in favor of quickness and flexibility. If you are travelling through this fantasy universe as a Warden, let this information be of help.



A Low Level Gambit Example



At beginning levels, your character will be limited to Gambits that require only two maneuvers to complete. Using this starting point in our example, we can illustrate how Gambits work.


Your low level Warden has available to him five basic maneuvers that, when used, will have a specific effect on the Gambit Panel:



  • Quick Thrust – a Spear icon is added to your Gambit Panel.

  • Shield Bash – a Shield icon is added to your Gambit Panel.

  • Warden's Taunt – a Fist icon is added to your Gambit Panel.

  • Quick Recovery – removes the most recently added icon from the panel.

  • Recovery – clears the Gambit Panel entirely.


In combat, you wish to pull off a Deft Strike (which results in a powerful blow), so you do a Quick Thrust followed by another Quick Thrust, resulting in a Deft Strike, which costs 51 Power points and results in you doing your main hand weapon damage plus 33 more points. After you've pulled off the Gambit, your Gambit Panel will clear, ready for another.



If, on your next maneuver, you put in two spears and then realize that you are getting low on morale, you can use Recovery to clear the Gambit Panel and then begin an Impressive Flourish (a Shield Bash and a Warden's Taunt), which heals for 32 morale initially and continues with an HoT while dealing light damage on the enemy and draining your Warden of 75 power points.


As you play the game, this system will make more sense and the next chapter, which lists all of the Gambits available, will give you an idea of what can be accomplished using your Warden's Gambits.



Gambits are gained slowly over your character's development, so don't fear that you'll need to memorize the entire list. Most of them will be learned naturally through repetition in-game, but the list below will show you what's available, how they can be utilized, and act as a reference should you wish to refresh yourself later in the game.
