This Battle Axe has a Strength Requirement of 54 before it can be used.
Please note that this Weapon is Two-Handed, so your character can not use an additional weapon or shield at the same time.

Can The Chieftain be Upgraded?

This is the normal version of this Axe. It can be upgraded to the exceptional version by putting it into the Horadric Cube. After hitting the transmute button it will be called Tabar. After that, it can be upgraded even further by repeating the steps and you will receive the Elite Version (Decapitator).
Note: If this item can have sockets, you might be able to get some runes and get one of the runewords as a result - if you place them in the correct order. Have a look at our builds to find out which items make the most sense for the character you're currently playing.
