Easy warden gambits
Hi, I have a new (lvl 18 right now) warden, and I'm new to LOTRO also. Can someone clear-up warden gambits for me please. So...3 stances, they change the results of gambit combo's? Or do they not?
For example, sh+sp+sh+sp+sh will always heal in all 3 stances?

There are gambit charts in the warden class thread, but to summarize: yes, the stances change effects, but there is usually a base effect which does not depend upon stance. Sp-Sh-... gambits remain interrupts, for example.Tiger got to hunt,/ Bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, / Bird got to land,
Man got to tell himself he understand.

Go to your character tab and click on the skills sub-tab at the bottom. Once on that page you'll see a header called GAMBITS. Click on it and you'll see all the gambits and what combo's it takes to get them, like:
Yell-Spear = Precise blow and Spear-Yell=Offensive strike which is 2 attacks or Spear-Spear=Deft Strike
When I first started out I wrote them down on a sheet of paper which I'd keep in front of me. Now I'm up to 4 Gambits (X-X-X-X) and I still do.

Look at some of the charts in the Warden forums, they are very helpful. But to answer your question, the stance does change some of the results of gambits (normally the 'ticking' effects, not the straight damage portion).
For example, Sp-Sh-Fi only provides a bleed while in Recklessness, and Sh-Sp-Sh is only a HoT in Determination stance.
Looking at your skill panel and the gambits there (it lists the different versions of the same gambit depending on stance) will help you figure out what really does what as well.
