The first build is for maximum damage. Viable in 3×3 Arena, for example Enhancement Shaman + Subtlety Rogue + Discipline Priest.
The second build is for maximum survivability. This build is used when you don’t have the top PvP gear.
The third build is when you’re a support in your team. Best in a combination of Enhancement Shaman + Arms Warrior + Holy Paladin / Restoration Druid.
— If you are playing 2 Damage Dealers then you might want to choose this instead of the last glyph. This will add sustain to your party.
