I can only speak for chaos/fist but the main difference is if you want range vs melee. Chaos/fist is pure melee.
As for it's effectiveness, it does decent dps due to weakness from chaos (watch for it's added hate in dungeons though if not a tank) and savage sweep effect and nearly unkillable due to chaos mitigation, heals/hots and feral regrowth effect. You can later pair chaos with something to make a pure tank and pair fist with something to make a pure healer.
It's play style will be light years from elemental/anything however. Elemental is pretty much only able to pair well to make a pure ranged dps deck or pair as support with something (hence why rifle is so popular as it goes either way as well and is ranged) so your expansion builds head off in differing directions as well.
Obviously go both routes later on as you can in this game.
