Totems and Marauder classes go well together, and can only get better with age. That’s why people can come up with builds like the Crit Triple Flame Totem Chieftain – an upgrade of the Double Flame Totem Blood Magic Chieftain.  It’s a huge improvement and a build worth considering if you’re a Marauder.

Passive Skill Tree and Skill Gems

For this particular build, you can choose between two trees:

  1. More life but less DPS
  2. More DPS but less life
  • Core skill gem (Flame Totem): have it with Fire Penetration, Empower, Elemental Focus, Increased Critical Strikes, and Controlled Destruction for more damage in exchange for critical strike chance.
  • Cast When Damage Taken setups: both have Immortal Call and Increased Duration, while one has Temporal Chains and Phase Run.
  • Movement: have Whirling Blades with Faster Attacks and Fortify if you’re using a dagger, or Flame Dash with Faster Casting if you’re using a wand. If you have three free sockets, you can also use Lightning Dash with Faster Casting and Less Duration.
  • Utility: have Orb of Storms with Culling Strike and Item Rarity.


  • Weapon: any Rare dagger with increased spell damage, fire damage, cast speed, and spell critical strike chance.
  • Shield: for a build with more DPS but less life, have Tukohama’s Fortress (Unique) for increased totem damage, life, ability to summon 1 additional totem and +300 armor for each totem. For more life but less DPS, have any Rare shield with bonuses to life, armor, and resistances.
  • Chest: Internal Mantle (Unique) for +1 to the level of socketed gems and another +1 to the level of socketed fire gems, increased fire damage, global critical strike chance, energy shield, and fire damage converted to chaos damage in exchange for 100% increased spell damage taken when low on mana.
  • Head: any Rare circlet with bonuses to life, energy shield, and elemental resistances.
  • Gloves: Atziri’s Acuity (Unique) for increased intelligence, armor, life, critical strike chance, and gain life and mana from critical strikes.
  • Boots: any Rare boots with bonuses to life, armor, elemental resistances, and movement speed.
  • Accessories: two Rare rings with a bonus to cast speed, life, energy shield, and elemental resistances. One Rare amulet with bonuses to intelligence and dexterity, cast speed, critical strike chance multiplier, energy shield, and life.
  • Belt: any Rare belt with bonuses to life, armor, and resistances.
  • Jewels: Clear Mind (Unique) for increased mana regen and spell damage when no mana is reserved; any Rare jewels with an increase in cast speed, life, armor, resistances, spell damage, and fire damage.
  • Flasks: Two Seething and one Panicked Divine Life Flasks, one of Heat for immunity to and removal of chill, and two of Staunching for immunity to and removal of curses; Adrenaline Flask for increased movement speed; and The Wise Oak (Unique) for elemental resistances.

It’s a Wrap

It’s a simple update for a straightforward and powerful build that’s been reliable for such a long time. So, if you want a Totem Chieftain, there’s no other way to build one than the Crit Triple Flame Totem Chieftain.
