I see the glyph of riptide to be almost worthless unless you're doing CH spam in which case I'd favor the dual wield spec which doesn't have the spell riptide. Reason is if I'm casting riptide on a target odds are I'll be focused on that target for a fair bit. Mana is much more of an issue so I'd rather have the extra tick from my mana tide to give a lot more mana back for my group.
Glyph of Earth Shield
Odds are I'm going to replace my passive mana regen from water shield with this glyph further enhancing my ability on a tank. I'm fully expecting most guilds to have a shammy on each tank due to the 3-4K heals from ES and the glyphed LHW combined with the large increase in AA healing while healing a tank which has a high percentage of over heal if you're spamming and critting.
