The #1 thing I can say for heroic PuGs is this: Make friends. One way or another, you'll find yourself in those initial few heroic PuGs when you're first getting going, and this is the time to make your impression. Bring the right equipment and food, perform your best, and bring a good positive attitude. Relax and have fun with the group. Befriend those who are skilled, and before long you'll always have folks to group with. As a tank, I quickly befriended a very skilled healer in a heroic PuG. We run together at least every few days, if not more often, and typically we each bring along a DPS or two that we've become friendly with in the same way. In a very short period of time, you'll end up with a pretty solid group of 5 that runs on a regular basis.As far as picking up people though, I generally take gear pretty lightly, particularly on the DPS. My tanking gear is well above what's required for heroics at this point, so even my healers don't have to have more than entry-level gear to keep us rolling. Just remember, mediocre gear does not always = mediocre player. Some of the most skilled players I know first impressed me when I saw what they were capable of while undergeared. :)
