Hello new druid ! :D

Welcome to our Druid's Grove :>

I want to help, but first I need to know what level you are, so that I can suggest specific items appropriate to your level.

In general, you would want intellect, spirit, spell damage, and spell crit. Those stats will help with both Restoration and Balance. :> Stamina is a good all-rounder stat as well, although I would suggest to prioritise the other ones.

Let us know how you get on :>

Welcome!

Just wanted to say that in WoW we don't say "cross-class". There is no cross-classing.
A talent spec that mixes elements from two different roles (tanking, dps, healing) is usually called a hybrid-build.

With regards to gear: I suspect you are leveling at the moment, so just take what you can get. The stat priority given by Annikk is perfect for leveling such a build.
Don't be shy about equipping cloth items. Yes, we druids wear leather, but for a caster it makes no difference, really, and up until level 60 most good caster items are cloth.

Is this (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Blade%27s+Edge&n=Toothgrinder) you? :>

If so, I'd recommend running Scarlet Monastery a bunch of times to get some nice weapon/offhands:

Weapon: Hypnotic Blade (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=7714)
Offhand: Orb of the Forgotton Seer (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=7685)


I'd also suggest Razorfen Downs - there is a cloak and a neck for you there:

Cloak: Mantle of Lady Falther'ess (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=23178)
Neck: Glowing Eye of Mordresh (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=10769)


Finally, once you have levelled up a little more, you could try Zul' Farrak:

Legs: Jinxed Hoodoo Kilt (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=9474)
Hat: Engineer's Guild Headpiece (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=9534)

There aren't all that many good items for Balance Druids until you reach level 58 and can take your first steps into Outland. Hopefully this will help a bit though :>
