I know this seems long and off topic but just adding a few details to help you all understand the situation  I have a resto Druid that I'm going to get back to leveling, I have 2 friends that are both level 60, a disc priest and destro lock, well the priest hasn't played that toon in a long time and isn't used to healing but is in full BoA so we are going to be leveling together in 5 mans and some questing, well we can't both be healers so I'm going to have an off spec to play when I'm with them but not sure what I can really play good enough in my resto gear, is their a spec I can play along with resto to be good enough to handle my role without getting kicked? I'll be getting some BoA gear but not sure what exactly I should get or what I can play in one set of gear, not really wanting to buy 2 sets of gear for 1 toon

I do have a druid as well, resto and balance (boomkin) using the same gear for both specs. Ofcourse it suits one spec better then the other but never had probs with it.

Ok I was thinking I would probably need boomkin with resto since I would have all that caster gear, was kinda hoping that since the Druid is known for being so versatile that I could be feral for my other spec or even guardian, I have played feral before and did like it but decided that I wanted to be a healer since I also have a blood dk and have enjoyed tanking I would be able to fill any role, is it possible for me to be feral/resto in any set of BoA gear (maybe even have some pieces healing gear and some rogue or tank gear) or even guardian since I'll be with a disc priest in full BoA without her ooming every fight. And I'm not wanting to be top dps or the best tank ever, just good enough that I can do 5 mans with my friends without people complaining about my performance, Zaron The Insane @ Shattered Halls (Horde) US

i suggest you take a look at "classes" at the top of the forum, and look at the different ones you are thinking of yourself. Imo the combo guardian/resto doesnt really fit or even resto/feral, quite different stats to aim for to play at least decent. Would really go for resto/boomkin, then you have best of both worlds ;) then again, just my 50cnts

Ofcourse you would go for balance, no reason not to. First, you'd destroy everything in your path and second, shares the same gear as resto. Ofc you would want to aim for spirit gear so you can be more effective when needed to heal. Another thing you should take into consideration is the caster origin of your trio there, they both will greatly benefit from 5% haste buff that you bring to the table :) Happy adventures :P
