I never had it while I played my priest. "I can heal myself, I don't need it".Then one night while raiding, I was told by our healing team lead that he wanted me to heal hard on the first part of a raid encounter, until I got hit with splash damage. At that point the strategy was for me to move to a safe zone, and bandage while my mana regenerated and another healer would take over for me. Then once the bandage finished, I was to wait for a particular amount of mana to come back before going back into the fight."Uh, yeah, I don't have First Aid trained past Linen"The response..."OK, get it up before the next raid. We'll move you to a different spot"Yeah, embarassed.Later on, I was convinced to respec to Shadow for the good of the guild. Boy, was I glad that I had trained it when I became a DPS class that was required to bandage through spike damage from various sources.Moral of the story: Even if you *think* you don't need it, train it anyway. You never know when your guild will require it during a particular fight. I'm lucky my guild is very understanding, some would have kicked me out of the raid there.
