How do I enter TBC Heroics?

Right click your character portrait, highlight over Dungeon Difficulty and then select 5-player Heroic.

The quickest way to enter a TBC Heroic is the Dungeon Finder. By default, "i" will open the Dungeon Finder or click the green eye icon in your options menu. Select the Heroic Dungeon you wish to queue for and your role. You can also create a full group of 5 players and use the Dungeon Finder to queue together and immediately teleport to the dungeon.
