I'm thinking about switching to Resto as I noticed our guild doesn't seem to have one. My base build would be this (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0ZZxVcxcq0eot).

For daily/grinding I often see Resto's put their remaining 19 points in Balance. Since I have a good Kitty set now, why not something like this 0/19/42 (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0ZE0McbbZxVcxcq0eot) build? Or should I bit the bullet and put my 19 points into balance like this 19/0/42 (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0t0ruaZZxVcxcq0eot) build?

It's just preference, but I would take Natural Shapeshifter, especially if you love NS+HT and/or don't have a mage in your regular 10-man group.

Also, if you're going to go with the points in balance, you might as well get Natural Perfection to buff your crit chance (as it affects all spells).

I think it's more of a style choice when it comes to balance vs. feral for solo. Personally, I found it very difficult to go from soloing as a cat while feral to soloing as a cat while resto. Your call.

I leveled feral, so I always kept my extra points in my feral tree and carried around my feral set and threw that on while I was soloing or doing dailies.

As my resto set was building quite nicely, I decided to re-spec and put my extra points into Balance. I figured that way I'd at least have more room in my bags (no feral set to carry around), plus I'd never really tried my balance abilities.

Gotta tell ya, I was quite pleasantly surprised! I'm loving it! Balance skills are fun, I can solo quite efficiently, and I very rarely run out of mana.

I never thought I'd say this, but I miss my paws less and less every day. Mind you, I still upgrade my feral set if the opportunity presents itself. :wink:

That is the spec I use when raiding. Its also useful for RoS(BT) and Leo the Blind(SSC).

I'm thinking respeccing and putting my feral points to balance for exactly the same reasons (bag space becoming an issue!) I'm glad that it's a move that's worked out for you.... hope I benefit from it too :)

The reason I picked balance is because the gear is pretty similar. Lots of +spell dmg on healing gear nowadays. I didn't want to have to carry around an entirely separate set for feral.

I suggest getting Natural Shapeshifter along with Improved Tranquility. I've found Improved Tranq. to be useful in a tight spot in instances.
