First Aid allows players to create various bandages that can be used to help themselves and other players. Physicians create bandages and apply them to other players that are wounded. Players must have the first aid skill to apply a bandage to another player.

The benefit of this skill is the ability to heal using items created from ingredients players are finding anyway while killing monsters.


You will need to purchase an Expert First Aid book to advance First Aid higher than 125. These can sometimes be found in the auction house. You also need to purchase Manual: Heavy Silk Bandage, and Manual: Mageweave Bandage. Alliance players need to buy the books from Deneb Walker in Stromgarde Keep in Arathi Highlands. He can be difficult to find. He's inside the keep on the safe side in a dark corner past a little bridge. Horde players need to find Balai Lok'Wein in Brackenwall Village in Dustwallow Marsh.

The recipes for Heavy Mageweave Bandage, Runecloth Bandage, and Heavy Runecloth Bandage can be learned by visiting your faction's Artisan First Aid questgiver.

The minimum level for Artisan First Aid is 35. To advance past 225 First Aid you will need to be taught by a doctor. This involves performing a special task involving saving patients before a timer is up. Horde players must speak to Doctor Gregory Victor in the town of Hammerfall in Arathi Highlands. Alliance players talk to Doctor Gustaf VanHowzen in Dustwallow Marsh.
