On my main, a mage, I don't use bandages all that much when soloing, because:A.) I kill stuff before it can beat on meB.) If I don't kill something before it beats on me, it takes enough mana to finally kill it than I'm going to have to drink anyway, and hey, I get free food as well as free water so I can eat/drink at the same time.When raiding, however, I do use bandages to lessen the burden on the healers. Especially on Gruul, I find it very useful.My other characters use bandages more. My rogue uses them a ton, as they're usually faster than eating (especially if my health isn't really low) and rogues don't have mana to regain. My hunter uses some, even uses them on her pet to save mana sometimes. My warlock does too, and Life Tap + Bandage is often faster than eat + drink.Even my shadow priest uses bandages, since you have to drop out of shadowform to use healing spells and that costs mana. That's the only character I've lagged behind on FA skill, though, since upping the tailoring skill has been a bigger priority so extra cloth has been a bit scarce. Getting there, though.In short, yeah, some classes need it more than others and it might be situational, but I always get FA on every one of my characters. Why wouldn't you use a tool that's easily available to everyone that gives you an advantage?
