    Dropped my 15 inch RMBP from my bed and it fell on its front (apple logo). I picked it up and it didn't look like there were any dents however upon using it from around 90 percent, it drained to 67 percent in about 25-30 minutes while i was using it. I feel like this is a lot. This is unusual too. Could the battery be a cause of the fall?

    Potentially. It might be worth checking to see if it says "replace battery" in OS X or if the issue persists. You can try reset SMC/PRAM to see if that makes . A positive difference. Otherwise if it's still in its first year of warranty you can take it into an Apple store for them to assess - if there's no cosmetic damage it's likely it'll be covered under warranty.

    If the laptop is over a year old it's likely Apple can't cover it due to the 1-year warranty on the battery (as it's a consumable item). Even if you have AppleCare. Worth taking in anyway though.
