Charges

Charges basically allow you to use select Abilities more than once, depending on the number of Charges they have. For example, if an ability has 2 charges on it, you can use the Ability twice. 
You have to have at least 1 Charge to be able to use an Ability with Charges.

When you use an Ability with a Charge once, it uses up one Charge and the Charge timer goes on ‘cooldown’. When the cooldown timer is up, you will gain another ‘Charge’. If you use all the Charges the Ability has, you have to wait for the cooldown timer to complete to be able to use the Ability again.

Sith Warrior’s have an Ability and Set Bonus with Charges.

CLASS ABILITY/SET BONUS/TACTICAL CHARGES BASE COOLDOWN
Sith Warrior Ability –Rabid Furor 4 30 seconds
Sith Warrior Set Bonus –Nimble Master(Force Charge) 2 15 seconds
