Chieftain ascendancy class.png
The Ancestors speak though your clenched fists.

The Chieftain is an Ascendancy class for Marauders.


The Chieftain focuses on dealing additional fire damage through his attacks and totems. He can greatly enhance the utility of his totems, making them more resilient, taunting enemies they hit, and weakening nearby enemies. The Chieftain can also boast large amounts of life regeneration through his enhanced Endurance charges and life leech through the fire damage he and his totems deal, making him surprisingly tough to kill in the heat of combat.
