WoW First Aid Guide: 7 Ways to Learn WoW First Aid


In the World of Warcraft context, wow First Aid is a secondary job that enables players to become healers of themselves and those around them. Guides like this WoW First Aid Guide are made to make sure that parties end up with effective and competent healers. This is also the profession that's adept at poison removal. RPGs, particularly MMORPGs like WoW, are always in need of healers in parties, particularly when it comes to dealing with major quests and the like.


1. Find a Trainer to Get You Trained in First Aid and Create Linen Bandages: There are many first aid trainers around WoW, so this step should be easy to accomplish. After training, you should start collecting linen in order to create linen bandages for your party. This is the first skill you'll learn as soon as you've been trained in the firs-aid healing arts. You may also fight humanoids in order to gain as much linen cloth as you can. However, you need to remember that you should mostly fight Levels 5 to 15 humanoids because they're the likeliest ones to drop linen for you. When all else fails, you can use your gold in order to buy from the Auction House.


2. First Aid Training Locations and Bandaging Tactics: First aid trainers can be found in every city as well as the major population centers scattered across WoW. You can ask the guard for directions or consult the list of trainers found online. These trainers teach the same recipes in every level of the first-aid profession. What's more, if you wish to reach higher than level 125 in first aid, you need purchase the Expert First Aid book, which is sometimes available at the Auction-House. In regards to bandaging tactics, you should be aware that your bandage can be used on multiple targets. You can bandage party member, yourself, and your pet as long as you pick different targets to avoid the recently bandaged buffer.

3. The Higher the Quality of the Cloth, the Better the Bandages: Bandages can be made of frostweave cloth, netherweave cloth, runecloth, mageweave cloth, silk cloth, wool cloth, and linen cloth. The linen cloth is the simplest bandage, while the forstweave is the most complex of the bandages. Depending on the bandage type, players can be healed of tons of damage. A linen bandage heals 66 HP over 6 seconds, while a heavy frostweave bandage can heal 5,800 HP over 8 seconds. You should use bandages in accordance to the severity of the damage inflicted. Also remember that before you can use another bandage, each bandage has a cool down timer of a minute, so you need to wait around that long before you can use one again.

4. Keep in Mind that Damage and DoTs Cancels Bandage Effects: This is a first-aid profession, so that means the bandages you provide your party for healing have their limits. Getting hit after being bandaged, for instance, will cancel the effects of the bandage, particularly if they're damaging hits. The same could be said of damage from spells that hurt players over time (damage over time or DoT). In order to deal with this dilemma, there's a need to fear, stun, or find some other way to lose the monster's aggro long enough for the bandage to actually work. This tactic is quite beneficial during PvP situations, wherein the stunned enemy in some instances stops his attack against a player altogether so that the bandage could be applied more thoroughly.

5. First Aid Is Useful in Close Fights without Healing Potions: There are times when healing potions are scarce, everyone's health is low, and the best-way to survive the mission is to grit your teeth and bear it. You need a player or two that's well-versed in the first-aid profession during those times when your back is up against the wall and you've no other choice but to survive the onslaught of enemies in order to finish whatever quest you've been dealt with, particularly when your escape route has been blocked. More to the point, you can stun, root, sheep, or otherwise disable your enemy's ability to attack while bandaging the most damaged members of your party.

6. Bandaging in the Middle of Battle: Even though this initially sounds wasteful and silly to do, the ability to bandage other players in the midst of an attack is quite the useful skill. The reason for this is because being able to renew a precious few hundred HP from tick damage or two can spell the difference between a failed quest and a successful one, or even a dead party member from a still surviving one. During those close battles where every last hit point counts, being able to have grace under fire and bandages during the heat of the battle can be quite the useful skill. In fact, it can even turn the tide to a seemingly hopeless battle.

7. Anti-Venom Development: Although a first-aid healer's anti-venom skills aren't as prized as his bandaging capabilities, it's still an important aspect of his profession, plus there are instances in the game where his anti-venom knowledge is crucial in winning quests and keeping the players inside a party safe. In order to again a normal anti-venom skill, such that you're able to-make anti-venoms that can cure-poisons up to level 25, you need your skill level to rise to 80. In turn, in order to be able to heal poisons up to level 35, you need a strong-anti-venom skill level of about 130. Finally, in order to cure-poisons up to level 60, you need a powerful anti-venom skill level of about 300.


Practitioners of the healing arts may generate an assortment of bandages that can be utilized to heal any player of damage. These bandages can be composed of a vast variety of cloths. A party member that's adept in First Aid can also create anti-venom consumables from the sacs dropped by poisonous enemies in the game. By having other options for healing aside from healing spells and healing potions, you and your party will be-able to deal with any quest, raid, or other missions that may come your way. It's the extra level of protection you need to truly flourish in the World of Warcraft.
