"Some days, I wish Spiritual Guidance was a TV show."You could try embedding YouTube clips ;)."You should always grab these professions, as they don't count against your limit of two."Agreed, and I add them to pretty much every character.However - I really don't actually use them that much as a priest. After all, one of my biggest strengths is healing, and I can certainly get my health back up to 100% with a spell faster than with food.I suppose I'm missing out on the "well fed" buff. But then again, at the higher levels that buff seems to be a lot more trivial than at lower levels. So I suppose cooking is good when at the low end of leveling.First Aid, hard to level? Cloth drops from nearly every mob! I have two characters that are maxed out on First Aid - and I didn't even have to touch the AH.Maybe if you do a lot of PvP you won't get as much of the materials, but if you do a lot of PvE, you're certainly gonna be able to max out First Aid quite easily.That, plus I figured it would be nice to have a healing ability that doesn't use mana."If it's been a long time since you've leveled a character last, it's worth noting that you don't need to find First Aid books or complete quests to level this skill anymore -- you can just visit a trainer now."Except the last Heavy Frostweave bandage. That you get via a world drop.The disappointing thing about the first aid profession, however, is the anti-venom. It's pretty weak, and requires grinding materials when you run out of it. I don't bother with that part of first aid anymore.

I know this article was meant to be for those making/leveling characters right now, before Cataclysm, but I wanted to note that after Cata is released, food made from cooking will restore mana as well as health. Apparently the devs liked the responses players gave regarding Northrend cooking recipes, so all tiers of cooking recipes are being changed. At long last we won't be limited to sagefish for a food that restores both health and mana. I'd rather be able to make "drink" when I want to as opposed to hoping to find barrels of liquid or drops off humanoids.
