As a raiding, full epic healer that often pugs (I prefer to do normal runs for rep as they're easy as) I find that as long as the tank is half decent, most runs go on without a hitch. I think that's the basic math for PuGs: decent tank + decent healer = good run.Of course, dps definately plays their part. Sure, if the tank and healer are good you won't have many, if any deaths, and things go relatively smoothly, but if the dps isn't pulling their weight then the runs can go so slow it's irritating.To give an example of this, I just finished up a BM pug with a decent pally tank, two locks and an enh shammy. The tank was doing fine, but the dps was very slow, meaning more adds spawned, which made healing harder than it should've been for that level of instance.In short, I'm not a huge fan of PuGs, but they're not as bad as people often make them out to be. Just have Armory ready to look at your tank and healer so that you can determine how easy or difficult the run should be. =)
