Hi Guys,
I've just finished leveling my druid to 90 and I want to go resto.  Will resto druid have a fighting chance next season?

Are there any good streamers to watch?

also! Yes Restodruid will be more viable how much is a different story! but 10% healing output will make it easier. But only future will tell exactly stronk we will be.

Currently SP/Warrior/Rdruid works.

I can rly see
Monk/SP/rdruid
Maby DK/retri/rdruid
Lets not forget Mage/Lock/rdruid
Rogue/SP/rdruid

im not quite sure how viable all comps will be but they all are sure to be viable and well working!

i usally stream multiclass but did some MLD with the nerf of healing to almost 2.4k, quiet impossible to get higher imo when KFC who overlap 3 cc's at sametime could still beat us since of low healing output

OK I have been playing some BG's and have some noobie questions.

What do I gem for and reforge for.

I'm thinking
Resi / int in yellow
int in red
spirit/int in blue

Reforge mastery after hit cap?

What comps should I be looking to play in 3's?  I'm most likely going to be playing with a warlock... I'm guessing a DK or rogue as third?  Maybe a mage/warrior if you can't find the DK / rogue.

Do you guys just macro nature's vigil with tree of life or is it better to use them separately?

You don't need hitcap (15% spell hit passive). Go for mastery, or get some haste if you are going to get another 5% haste from party buffs.
if playing with a warlock then any of those would work well. RLD should be pretty strong.
Plant mushrooms on your port for an instant top-up.

Your gemming choice should depend on what comp you are playing and against what you play. I'd generally recommend the idea you had by yourself. And yes, don't aim for a Hitcap since as already mentioned we got those basic 15% hit for our spells.

There are two different ways of reforging:

1. Mastery-heavy Reforge

Reforge your Haste/Crit to Mastery or to Spirit if it already has Mastery on but that you still end up reaching the Hastecap, which is 30XX (I don't have the number in my head atm).  

2. Haste + Spirit one

Keeping your Haste and try to reach as many Haste breakpoints as possible and reforging mastery/crit to spirit if haste is already applied on that piece.

For comps I'd recommend Godcomp, MLD, LSD and RPD + maybe upcoming comps with ww monks.

Regarding the Nature's Vigil + ToL macro question. I personally didn't use NV in S12 and in S13 it will be even weaker, so going with HOTW (6% Int / Stamina) is definitely a good opporunity and will be used over NV. I had a discussion with Sodez about it and had a statistic of what kind of difference it is and it looked better for HOTW.
