Thank you!

Thank you!
[HEROIC+2 : "name of the quest"] and [HEROIC+4 : "name of the quest"] are, simply put, ways for the game to let you know that it's better to face that quest with a group, unless you want your *** beaten in such a violent way that you' ll remember it for ages !
The "+2/4" obviously refers to the number of people it should take to finish the quest comfortably. Btw, if you ever need to look for a group for a Heroic, just type in the general chat "lfg" and then shift-click the name of the Heroic in your quest tracker, then hit enter : that way you can share your mission with others and find groups easily !

There are three types of Heroic Missions:

[HEROIC 2] - You'll need another player to assist (unless you're tank-spec'd, you might be able to solo it).
[HEROIC 2+] - You'll need another player and possibly a third (again, depending on spec'd and equipped companions).
[HEROIC 4] - You'll need three other players to join you (or two more depending on your specs).

Heroic Missions, unfortunately, can waver in difficulty. It's possible for two players to tackle four-man Heroics, but then there are others that require a tank and a medic to be knowledgeable in their jobs. Early Heroic Missions are typically in the open world, while later ones are instanced.
