Charge Weaving:

  • Have a swing timer on your UI (e.g. Weakaura or Quartz)
  • Wait for an auto-attack to complete before running away from the boss to Charge back in.
  • Keep yourself at max melee range of your target as much as possible. This will reduce the amount you need to run and will make it less likely your next auto attack is late.
