Default Chaos Build (Occultist)

So while leveling my Death Knight I kept getting Chaos themed drops both caster and melee as well as a few vitality so thought I'd try my hand again at Chaos since I was getting that over Aether heh. Now I'm not sold yet towards Melee or Caster even ranged though I HAVE been mostly running as an Occultist maxed out sigil,maxed destruction,possession,1 point in Doom Bolt (Plan on making Doom Bolt part of the build) and chaos strike and am unsure as to where to go from where...I have as I said plenty of Chaos Gear (Obsidian Juggernaught,Scythe of tenebris,Voidsteel Gauntlets,Demon Plate leggings,a few medals,etc.) As well as lots of vitality gear (Wendigo Legs legendary,Flesheater rare,Fiendscale legendary,riftwarped gauntlets,tomes,etc.) I'm currently using an Omen and one of those Bone shield MI's that add's 10% to Sigil's damage to healing as well as 2 seconds more duration to sigil. I also have a Blood Orb of Chthon so can go Anyway Melee,Caster,Ranged leaning more towards Melee or Caster but any of the three is viable.

Sorry running on 3 hours of sleep over close to 36 hours basically I know nothing of building Chaos themed classes so was wondering what might be best given I started with Occultist. Just something that uses some Chaos damage.

Demolitionists and inquisitors are best options since they both have - chaos resistance.

But no flat passive chaos damage. Chaos rr can be added with item procs.

Occultist get heaps of flat Chaos as is from Solael's Witchfire, Possession (only exclusive for Pyromancer, best option for Chaos Deceiver without considering conversion) and Blood of Dreeg if you use the Darkblaze amulet.

No class has good chaos support other then occultist, unless you use blood rite.
Your choices are
Soldier through weapon damage
Demlitionist through termite mines, bwc and firestrike
Inquisitors through word of pain, FoI transmuter, ranged weapon damage
Arcanist through flat damage (can't remember the skill off top of head) AAR transmuter
Shaman has none but you could use weapon damage but not as good as soldier
Necromancer same as shaman
Nightblade through phantasmal blades and weapon damage


Again in my opinion using demolitionists and inquisitor is best option. Hell I usually take both classes for my chaos caster, unless I specifically want sigil in the build.

There are also a few items that can convert damage types into chaos

There are a few Chaos builds, but Darkblaze Pyro (or here) might be the one with best results all around.

You can also take a look at my Chaos Witch Hunter, if you like dw melee chars.
