Elite / Major
Corrupted Chieftains are a more powerful variant of Scorn Chieftain. In The Witch Queen expansion, larger, more powerful Ultra versions can be encountered as high-value targets within Savathûn's Throne World.
The more common Elite and Major-tier Corrupted Chieftains are indistinguishable from their Minor counterparts in both appearance and behavior, except they have increased health. The Ultra variants that appear in Savathûn's Throne World, however, are much greater in stature and health, wear more distinct armor, and appear as high-value targets in both the Quagmire and Miasma areas. They are always equipped with Scorn Mine Launchers and they possess incredible agility, being able to easily outrun players. If you get too close to them, they can use a powerful stomp attack to deal immense amounts of damage and send you flying backward. If they are killed before they depart from the area, they will drop a chest which you may claim rewards from.
