Go here => Leveling your First Aid
One thing to note is that your first aid quests to unlock 225-300
will vary depending on whether you're horde or alliance, not by much,
but different NPC's are involved.
Any of the required books can, usually, be bought off the Auction House for 3 to
5 gold, saving you the time of travelling to the vendor. The last book, Heavy
Frostweave Bandage must be found, it's not available to buy.
Note that once you are past skill 150 you will need to buy books and complete quests to raise your first aid skill. You will be able to buy the grandmaster skill from the Northrend trainer, but the last book you will need to find.

Triage Quest, For First Aid of 225+
For both Horde and Alliance:
- Required: You must be Level 35+ and have 225 Skill
- Bring a few stacks of Runecloth and Mageweave and you will be able
to stay here after completing the quest and powerlevel your First
Aid to 300, picking up the new skills at 240, 260, and 290.
First talk to Nissa Firestone in Ironforge, she'll send you on your way to Doctor Gustaf VonHowzen in Theramore, Dustwallow Marsh, to do your Triage Quest. It's also quite possible to simply head to the doctor and skip Nissa.
Head to Doctor Gustaf VanHowzen in Theramore, talk to him to start your Triage quest, this will, upon completion, allow you to continue on past 225 up to 300 skill. You'll also have to return at 240, 260, and 290 to train new Bandage types. Consider him your new first aid trainer.
Talk to Arnok in The Valley of Spirits, located in Orgrimmar, he'll send you on your way to Doctor Gregory Victor in Hammerfall, Arathi Highlands, for your Triage Quest. As with the alliance you can also skip this part and simply head over to the doctor.
Talk to Doctor Gregory Victor in Hammerfall to begin your Triage quest, this will, upon completion, allow you to train up past 225 skill until 300. You'll be required to return at 240,260, and 290 skill to train new bandages. This is your new first aid trainer.
The Triage quest for the Horde and the Alliance is basically the same.
The only real difference is that it's easier to view all of the Horde
beds than it is for the Alliance beds. Everything else is pretty much
Triage will require you to save 15 different patients in a specific
order before allowing a maximum of 6 to die. When you begin you'll
be in a room surrounded by 6 different beds, stand directly in the
center of these beds so as to be able to view them all at the same
At this point make sure you're using your special
Triage bandages, given to you for this quest, otherwise you'll fail.
As to the order of bandaging you'll often find that critically injured
patients die unless you start bandaging immediately after they spawn,
so you can't just ignore them.
Your general order of operations is to bandage the most injured patient
first. Do Critically Injured first, then Badly
Injured, and finally
One last trick is to target the next patient in line even as you bandage
one, this allows a better reaction time to bandaging multiple patients
in a row.
Once you have completed the Triage quest:
Mageweave Bandages 226 - 240
Train Heavy Mageweave Bandages
Heavy Mageweave Bandages 241 - 260
Train Runecloth Bandages
Runecloth Bandages 261 - 290
Train Heavy Runecloth Bandages.
Heavy Runecloth Bandages 291 - 300
Get the book: Master First Aid - Doctor in the House. You will find it in the Outlands, for about a gold, or on the AH for 5-15 gold.
- If you're Horde, get to the Outlands and find Aresella, located at 26,62 at Falcon Watch in Hellfire Peninsula.
- If you're Alliance, get to the Outlands and find Burko, located at 22,39 at at the Temple of Telhamat in Hellfire Peninsula.
You will also need to buy the Netherweave and Heavy Netherweave books from these vendors or from the AH.
Heavy Runecloth Bandages 300-330
Netherweave Bandages 330-360
Heavy Netherweave Bandages 360-375
First-Aid Beyond 375
Go to Northrend and talk to the guard to find the first aid trainer
for your town. You will get Grandmaster First Aid and learn Frostweave
Bandages. These will take you to at least 400 skill.
To get to
the 450 first aid skill you will need the get the Heavy
FrostWeave Bandage manual. You
will need at least a 390 First Aid skill and you will have to go
to Zul'drak in Northrend and kill mobs until one drops. Mobs there
are about level 74 to 75. I found mine on a Drakuru Prophet.
You do not need to enter the instances, just kill mobs in the general
They manuals are Bind on Pickup, so you won't see
them on the Auction house and you can't get them from a vendor.
Your Heavy Frostweave Bandage skill will go green at 430,
so you are going to make a lot of bandages if you want to max out
