My general thoughts:1) If you're going to pug, make sure everyone knows that you're still learning the ropes. It might take longer to form a group, but you'll find people willing to work with you.2) Read at least one guide to gearing/enchanting/gemming your tank gear. Not just because it's worth it to figure out what you need or what the best things are, but sometimes you can find place-holder gear from sources you wouldn't have considered (quests, sparsely run dungeons, etc).3) Be prepared for criticism and grief. When things go wrong, and they inevitably do, fingers are going to point at either you or the healer. Learn to roll with it. If you screwed up, figure out how to fix the problem. If it was someone else, try to calmly suggest ways to prevent the problem (i.e. "Maybe you should wait for me to get aggro before you start blasting that add.")4) Be prepared for ninjas. With dual-specs out now, there's more people rolling on gear for their "off" spec. Always specify ahead of time what the loot rules are. In general, if you're tanking, you should get priority on the tank gear. (If you came as a DPS, make sure the tank doesn't want something before you hit "Need," or you will make some people very unhappy).
