Ok, warden relevant raid stat buffs:
Scrolls: 1009 tact & phys mit. 700 tact & phys mastery
Food: 45-48 to stat for cheap food, 73 or so for expensive food
Token: +5% morale
-Tactics: On Guard +1665 parry for 2A buff stick
-Motivate: +10% morale
-Motivate: +600 tact mit (with 5-tognir set; I've got it but you can't rely on it from every captain)
-IDOME: +75 to every stat (I use it in Lightning T2 boss but not the trash and not F&F T2 [extent of my T2 experience])
Captains can use 1 brother skill at a time. I like Blade Brother, but we learn to use the most appropriate one for the situation:
-Shield Bro toggle: +120 ICMR. +300 Crit D (don't rely on it. I for one would rather use Blade Brother and make the SOB die faster, but if you're single tanking something, sure I'd give it to you)
-Shield Bro SoW: +20% inc healing. 100% uptime
-Shield Bro To Arms: -15% inc damage for 25-30s every minute. This is not mitigation, this is a different check (same as SotD and one of those RK skills that reduces inc damage)
-Song Bro To Arms (lesser benefit): +10% OGH, 50% uptime basically.
-Song Bro SoW (lesser benefit): -4% power cost to healing skills. Crank those ShSp gambits.
-Blade Bro SoW (lesser benefit): -4% attack duration. Feels good man.
Other captain stuff...
-Menestaid Words of Courage: +600 inc healing for 30s per WoC cast, stacks 3x, doesn't refresh with a new WoC so that sucks. (Requires 5-Menestaid. Solid set for HoH and non-capstone cappies. You're liable to have at least one captain in a raid using that. I just got my 5-Command set from the moors, so cya inc heal buff, hello +10% incoming damage to target)
-War Cry: -20% attack duration. Feels so sexy on a warden! minute duration, 45s or 36s CD. Requires defeat response so it competes with Rallying Cry.
-Banner of Hope: man I need to go check in game
-Banner of Victory:
-Coldfells Banner: +1351 tact and phys mit
-Banner of War: +75 (or 85) might and agi
Minstrels (I'm no expert on minis)
Tales are 1 at a time and 100% uptime. Yellow capstone means you can combine Battle & Fire and Frost, and Warding & Heroism -Tale of Battle: +71 Vit, +1522 resistance
-Tale of Warding: +900 armor, +1 Hope
-Tale of Frost and Flame: +563 Fire mit & Frost mit.
-Tale of Heroism: +75 will & fate
Anthems last for a finite amount of time and have shared cooldown. Yellow traits affect the cooldown and duration. A mini with 3b/4y, the duration legacy, and Draigoch or yellow ToO set bonus can have 35s duration anthems, allowing for 4 anthems to be up 100% under ideal circumstances. Its more like 2 anthems for 5b/2y minis.
-Anthem of Composure: +2435 resistance, +1238 tact mit. That might have a legacy or two on the book, dunno if Lotro-wiki is right. I wouldn't want to swap to a buff book for it though. -Anthem of the Free Peoples: +75 vitality, +1769.4 ICMR -Anthem of Prowess: -10% attack duration. +450 armor, +900 evade. Very sexy
-Anthem of War: +5(+10)% melee damage, +5(+5)% ranged damage, +5(+5)% tactical damage. that 1 skill has 3 legacies, crazy.
And then they've got Anthem of the 3rd age and Anthem of Composure for themselves. Dunno much about those and if they share cooldowns, etc.
A Coda wipes the anthems and gives a heal. Under ideal circumstances they wouldn't have to use it, but you all know stuff happens. EDIT: It wipes the Minstrel's own anthems apparently
Symphony of the Hopeful Heart: +10% inc healing, 2.5 min on 5 min cooldown. static AoE.
Runekeeper (passing familiarity with RKs)
Do not Fall to X: +???? (four digits) tact mit, 100% uptime, except it attunes them 2 pts (out of like 9 or 10 I think) back to neutral.
one of their heals gives armor with their Orthanc healing set. Healing moors set too. idk.
-Wondrous Foreshadowing: its like +50% inc healing, -40% inc damage. By default, 8s duration, 1m CD. but I think there's a legacy... maybe not
Rune Signs: 30s duration, 30s CD. depends on what element they are atm. You aren't likely to get it as a warden
-Rune sign of Flame: +???? (four digits) finesse & -5% miss chance
-Rune sign of Lightning: +4% crit & +1200 crit rating IIRC. So good
-Rune sign of Winter: +???? tact & phys mastery, +3% damage
EDIT: oops, forgot about LM bird tact mit

Coda has been fixed and should only wipe the anthem from the Mini.
Good list but you missed one rarely used. Melody of Battle 300 parry +27 reflect damage
Good Knowledge, thank you sir.
Lately we've been 2 warden tanking Lightning T2C. Stacking both wardens in the same group so they swap aggro better. I've been using Song-bro in there, #1 because while Shield-bro is better for increasing focused heals on a single tank, we had 2 tanks in the same group so there it was better to use Song-bro on the origin of the heals (also tons of AoE damage).
But I just realized the two wardens were getting their own heals buffed +10%, 50% of the time. Heck yes.
