Should Ret Paladins level First AId? PvP/PvE

Paladin
Now that it is 5.2, I feel as though First Aid bandages are not as powerful as the base Ret pally flash of light.

With the buffs they gave us as of 5.2 , I'm usually able to heal to 80% or full with two or three Flash of Lights while bubbled and get back into the fight.

Would bubbling and bandaging oneself up be more efficient and faster than the above?

I've read several posts similar about this, but they were created before our heals were buffed.

Is it worth leveling as a Ret pally and why?
Everyone should level first aid. Why wouldnt you?
Of course. More achievement points = more self worth.
Rets can definitely get by without bandages, but once in a blue moon you get behind LoS without DoT's on you and your mana bar isn't enough to heal to full
<---first aid level 1.

Still have the books in my bank, too. If you remember those. I will not level it, period.

First aid is behind times. With all the shields, insta heals etc. it is totally outdone. I use it on my warrior, but it pisses me off more than anything, because I cannot bandage through a bleed or dot when out of combat.

Emphasize, I cannot bandage through a bleed effect? Really? Not only does one tick of damage cancel my bandage cast, it's put the debuff on me. They need to change this before I level it on another toon.

You should be able to bandage through dots-bleeds when out of combat.

I agree with this. What are you putting bandages over anyways if you're bleeding
