I do think a glyph to increase buff duration would be nice though.
Glyph of Armors/Horn of Winter/Shadow Protection/Battle/Command/Demoralizing Shout: Increases the duration of these abilities, and radius for Shouts.
Glyph of Slow Fall/Levitate/Water Walking/Water Breathing/Unburdened Rebirth/Renewed Life: Removes the need for a reagent for the spells they affect.
Glyph of Blood Tap: Your blood tap no longer causes damage to you.
Glyph of Challenging Roar/Dash/Astral Recall/Feign Death: Reduces the cooldown of all these abilities.
Glyph of Curse of Exhaustion/Distract/Pick Pocket/Shackle Undead: Increases the range of these spells by 5 yards.
Glyph of Enslave Demon/Pick Lock/Poisons: Reduces the cast time of these spells/abilities.
Glyph of Blurred Speed: Enables you to walk on water when you Sprint.
Glyph of Death's Embrace/Drain Soul/Shadowfiend/Berserker Rage: Enables these spells to refund more resources in specific situations.
Glyph of Aquatic Form/Unending Breath/Eye of Kilrogg : Increases swim or pet speed.
Glyph of Resilient Death: Resets the cooldown of your Death Grip when used on an immune target.
Glyph of Typhoon: Reduces the mana cost and increases the radius of Typhoon (at the "cost" of knockback.)
Glyph of Path of Frost/Safe Fall: Reduces fall damage.
Glyph of Raise Ally: Increases health and run speed of Risen Ally.
Glyph of Aspect of the Pack: Increases the range of Aspect of the Pack by 15 yards.
Glyph of Mend Pet: Mend Pet increases your pet's happiness slightly.
Glyph of Revive Pet/Scare Beast/Health Funnel: Decreases pushback while casting.
Glyph of Bloody Healing: Bloodrage gives you 40% more healing.
Glyph of Enduring Victory: Increases the duration of the Victory Rush proc by 5 seconds.
Glyph of Intimidating Shout: Targets of Intimidating Shout now stand in place instead of fleeing in fear.
These all address quality of life issues - not one of them is a buff cost reduction or cosmetic effect.
And even looking at some of the cost reduction glyphs, things like Fading and Furious Sundering are actually useful in combat, unlike any of ours.
The plain and simple truth is that our minor glyphs suck.
