I've always loved Energy and Rage. Since mana pools last a very long time, and often longer than any single fight, mana users need to spam. If they don't, they're wasting DPS time. However, with Rage and Energy as long as your bar isn't full, you can wait to use your abilities.To put it another way, a mana user's DPS is tied to how fast they can push the proper button. However, the DPS of a Rage or Energy user is tied to their resource regeneration, and if they aren't at full resource, they aren't wasting DPS time. So if you anticipate your opponent is going to use an ability that you need to respond to or your just waiting for the right moment to execute a move, you aren't wasting precious DPS time.God I hope that made sense.

You seem to be talking about pve, as mana-users in arena should definitely manage their resources better than spamming. In pve, some classes and specs should 'spam' regardless of having rage, runic power etc. If an arms warrior doesn't use a gcd, he's losing dps. There could be a situation where if you use an ability like slam you won't be able to use mortal strike when it comes off cd, but generally you should work to avoid those situations and keep using every gcd you can to dps. So yes, what you are saying does make sense, but doesn't apply to all non-mana users.
