"The Ancestors speak through your clenched fists"

The Chieftain is focused around fire damage with attacks and totems. He can greatly enhance the utility of his totems, making them more resilient, taunting enemies they hit, and weakening nearby enemies, or boost his own fire damage with physical-to-fire damage conversion.

This build very cheap to get going. And even with brigthbeak nerf it should be very fast clearer. Its tankier than elementalist but it can't kill the whole screen with inpulsas.

Gems Setup

Main: Blade Vortex-Controlled Destruction-Elemental Focus-Added Fire-Spell Echo-Combustion

Replace Spell Echo with Concentrated Effect and added Fire with Fire Penetration for guardian and shaper fights

Movement: in gloves with faster attacks link: Shield charge, Fortify, curse on hit flammability

CWDT: CastWhenDamageTaken-Immortal Call-Blood rage

Single Target Support: Orb of storms-arcane surge-combustion

Keep an eye out on arcane surge lvl so it matches the mana cost of orb of storms. Cast this on bosses and every 8 seconds to refresh your arcane surge. For orb of storms lvl 20 its arcane surge lvl 7

Auras: Herald of Ash, Clarity (lvl 12 should be enough if you use spell echo)

Gear

Uber Elder Gear With MoM Version

  • Weapon: Opal Sceptre
  • Shields: Titanium Spirit Shield
  • Chest: Loreweave
  • Gloves: Titan Gauntlets
  • Rings and Amulet and Belt: Loath Coil Opal Ring, Entropy Turn Opal Ring, Citrine Amulet, Stygian Vise
  • Boots: Kaom's Roots
  • Flasks: Chemist Sulphur Flask of Adrenaline, The Wise Oak, Alchemist's Quartz Flask of Adrenaline, Lavianga's Spirit, Saturated Eternal Life Flask of Staunching

Without MoM Version

  • Weapon: You can use any melee weapon here. If you want speed brightbeak is still bis otherwise get a shaper scepter with added physical as fire and spell/ele dmg
  • Shields: Go for life(elemental/spell dmg/cast speed
  • Gloves: Roll or buy a pair of elder gloves with faster attack support to run shield charge with curse on hit.
  • Rings and Amulet: Anything with life, resi, elemental or fire dmg. Cast speed is not bad either.
    Amu is a good place to get the missing dex. 
  • Belt: Biscos for the quantity and the rampage is so good for speed clearing. For bossing use either an stygian or elder belt with life covery.
  • Boots: Anything with movement speed life and resi. If you get elder boots with fortify and movement speed, then you can put your shield charge combo in here.
  • Flasks: Chemist Sulphur Flask of Warding, The Wise Oak, Alchemist's Quartz Flask of Adrenaline, Lavianga's Spirit

 

Leveling

You can level with a melee skill until normal lab. You can try smite and link it to ancestral call and added fire or whatever you like (its only for the first 4 hours anyways)

To level with melee pick up the melee nodes in marauder grab Versatility and after that go to duelist area until life of the gladiator. Grab some weapon dmg nodes if your missing dmg. Then progress to the scion life wheel and up until elemental overload. (I posted a pob tree bellow)
On finishing library quest, get blade vortex, controlled destruction, elemental focus, blasphemy and flammability. Put them in your off hand to lvl.

Lvl with melee until you get to belly of the beast 1. get your spell echo and link it with blade vortex controlled destruction and ele focus and your good to go. After you get your gems ready respec your melee nodes to get the life nodes and avatar of fire.

You can also grab Diamond Skin if you run into resist problems or grab versatility and Precision if you run into dex problems. They also give you lots of attack speed to go faster

Blood Rage/CWDT IC and Soul of Arakaali interaction

We have blood rage and cast when damage taken immortal call, so everytime ic procs we stop taking dmg over time and get 50% incr recovery rate, thats an insane regen and leech boost we get, right when we need it. It also works for the flask. 30% less shock effect and duration and 25% chaos dot res is also not bad.

Double Curse

When you start doing elder maps lookout for gloves. If you find a pair of elder gloves roll it with alts until you get the faster attack support. In trade league its probl easier to buy a pair. Now you can respec into double curse and run enfeeble on blasphemy and support your shield charge with curse on hit and flammability

Lab Enchants

If your in trade league you can try to get a helmet (pref starkonjas) with blade vortex enchant (you dont need the crit one). 

For Boots enchant you have many options depending on your preference

  • AttackAndCastSpeedOnKill for clear speed
  • EnchantmentAddedFireDamageOnKill3 for more dmg in mapping
  • EnchantmentElementalPenetrationWhileHaventKilled3 more dmg for shaper/uber elder
  • EnchantmentLifeAndManaLeechOnKill3 for more sustain during mapping
  • EnchantmentLifeAndManaRegenerationWhenHit3_ for more sustain during bossing
