First Aid is recommended to all classes as a way of reducing downtime between battles, by quickly restoring health after combat. It is highly recommended for melee classes without healing abilities.
NOTE: If you are level 90 already, you can jump straight to the Warlords of Draenor part. You can also craft the new legion recipes from skill 1, but it's a lot cheaper to level with Draenor recipes, and they are also easier to farm.

Kill mobs at Draenor until you get [First Aid in Draenor]. It seems it only drops from Humanoids and Giants.
If you start from skill one, you have to make 120 [Healing Tonic] or 120 [Antiseptic Bandage]. It depends on if 1200 Sea Scorpion Segment is cheaper than 600 Sumptuous Fur. But the Fur is usually cheaper.
Check out my Sumptuous Fur farming guide if you want to farm the cloths.
- 600 -700
20 x [Healing Tonic] - 200 Sea Scorpion Segment
You can also start making [Silkweave Bandage] if Sea Scorpion Segment is too expensive. You will need 100 [Shal'dorei Silk], so check which one is cheaper. You can learn this recipe from any First Aid trainer.
700 - 800
All of these recipes below will be green for the last 10 points, so you will probably need to craft between 40-70 from each. You can learn these recipes from your First Aid trainer.
Important! If you get any First Aid quest while leveling, don't complete them until you reach 790. These quest will be the only way to get to 800, so it's better to save them.
- 700 - 730
45 x [Silkweave Bandage] - 45 x [Shal'dorei Silk]
If you are Honored with the wardens, it's a good idea to buy the recipe [Recipe: Feathered Luffa] from Marin Bladewing at Azsuna. Then make [Feathered Luffa] between 720-730.
- 730 - 760
45 x [Silvery Salve] - 225 x [Silver Mackerel]
If you are honored with the wardens, you should make [Feathered Luffa] until 760. The problem is you often can't find enough [Pristine Falcosaur Feather] at the Auction House to reach 760, so you will have to make Silvery Salve. (you should compare the price of 10 x Pristine Falcosaur Feather against 5 x Silver Mackerel)
Check the previous step in the guide to see where you can buy this recipe.
- 790 - 800
Currently the only way to level to 800 is by doing First Aid quests. Each of these quests will give you 5 skill points, so you only have to do two of them.
The items which start the quests are random zone drops at Broken Isles zones. You will get these items as you play the game. The Field Packs and the bandages have to be in your bag! If you have them in your bank, you can't complete the quest!
Make sure that you learn [Treat Fever], [Stabilize] and [Treat Burns] from your trainer. You will need these to complete the quests, and this is not yet confirmed but I think the quest items won't drop unless you have these spells.
You can get [Field Pack] from Angelique Butler near your First Aid trainer at Dalaran.
The achievement Is There a Medic in the Zone? tracks all if these items, so you can check if you completed any of them, but this is currently bugged and you can't see your progress even if you completed some of the quests.
Full list of items:
Important note! The wowhead droprates are not accurate. It seems all of these are random zone drops from mostly humanoids, but on some items wowhead filters out the low drop rate mobs and only shows the highest one.
You can only have one quest active at a time! This means that if you get a quest item, you have to complete the quest before another quest item drops.
I hope you liked this First Aid leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 800!
