The Chieftain is an Ascendancy class for Marauders.

Overview

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. The Chieftain also boasts endurance charge generation and a large amounts of life regeneration and life leech through the fire damage he and his totems deal, making him surprisingly tough to kill in the heat of combat.
