Saving a CD for a burn phase is totally different from not following the Eclipse bar. A better parallel for the warrior would be that, for 15 seconds, you spend 0 Rage in order to conserve all of that Rage for a single portion of the encounter. You don't merely do this because it increases your DPS for that particularly part of the encounter, but rather that it skyrockets your DPS so much that even after doing literally nothing for 15 seconds, you are still the top DPS. A balance druid spamming Starfire in a Solar Eclipse is only barely out-DPSing tanks, and if it's a phenominal tank like Ressi then you aren't even doing that. Yet because Solar Eclipse is that much more powerful for out AOE, we can blow every other class out of the water in terms of damage. Watch DREAM Paragon's kill of Rag and you'll see it rather clearly. Going into phase 2, Lappe is around 4 - 5 on their damage chart. Just before the adds come out, he drops down to around 9 - 10, then right after the first wave of adds, he's up to 1. It's highly counter-intuitive how our rotation actually works out, or how a vast majority of our spells work with the Eclipse mechanic.
