First, build a friends list pertinent to your grouping needs. I'm a tank so my friend's list is 99% healers and 1% DPSers. Whenever I group with a healer who does a good job (or a DPSer that does an outstanding job) I friend them. Ask people form this list first, or to fill open slots. Do a quick armory check of people in the LFG channel that you don't know to make sure their gear is decent enough for heroics.Second, do a good job tanking, healing, DPSing, CCing, or doing whatever your job is. If you do that others will want to group with you, especially if you are a healer or a tank. Use resources like this site or elitistjerks.com to brush up on your technique.If you're just beginning heroics you can work with people you've friended from normal mode dungeons. Stick to the easiest ones such as slave pens at first (you really just need good CC for that one, not much DPS at all). Otherwise the daily heroic almost always has plenty of groups forming.Advertise pertinent information in the LFG tool. If you're a DPSer put your spell damage, attack power or your DPS in there. If you're a healer put in your +healing.

This is precisely correct. Pugging heroics is PAINFUL at first, but gets a lot easier as you make contacts in the general field of people who are online at about the same time as you. A well-populated friends list filled with people who remember that you are good at your job is priceless.Another option is to find out what secondary channels are active on your server. There are a number of global channels that I sit in because there are cool people in there. It's usually easier to pull from acquaintances than from strangers, I never use LFG anymore, just the guild alliance channels and a friendslist.
