I've had a pretty good experience over-all in heroic PUGs. Sure you get the occasional horror stories, but they're good for a laugh, and you can develop a thick skin after a while. As you're a hunter, my only advice is to be very very proactive. Understand that anyone who's not a tank, healer, or CC is *not* going to be in high demand, and that you are a member of the most maligned class in the game (often undeserving, sometimes not). I would probably start pugging around peak server time (usually 6 or 7 for me), pick up any daily hero or dungeon quests there are. Pay attention to the LFG chat channel. If you see someone in the queue with you, check them out on armory, and ask if they want to group (please no ninja-vites). Be competent (know how to chain trap & assist), be prepared (repaired, have water & pet food), and be pleasant. Don't start blaming people just because you've wiped a few times. If someone has bad gear (within reason of course), give them a chance. After all, there's a reason why people do heroic runs (e.g. to gear up). At the end of the run, even if you wiped 50 times and haven't killed anything, be courteous and wish them good luck. You want to be remembered as the great hunter and have people look at in the queue (or better yet, just whisper you as soon you log on) and say "hey i know bobhunter. he's great. let's invite him!".
