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.
Righteous Fire is a skill that lights you on fire, giving you more spell damage and burning you for a ton of fire damage per second, while also burning everything else around you in an AoE!
This differ slightly from the minmax pastebin up top ^ seeing as most players won’t be able to get that tier of gear.

IF you can get an elder helm, go for Supported By Burning Damage/Conc Effect/Essence of Horror. This allows you to use Arcane Surge + Swift Affliction instead of those 2 links. Arcane Surge adds a hidden “duration” tag to RF, allowing Swift Affliction to work. This is highest DPS setup.
Another option is Elder Helmet with Essence of Horror, Burning, Conc, and 4 Blue. RF, Ele Focus, Efficacy, Inc Area for more quality of life.
