Basics: Take it back! The undo button!
One of the best things about Hero Academy is not its variety of playstyles (although that's great), is not its depth of play (which is excellent), is not its funny and emotive characters (they're funny!), but the undo button. Huh? Yes, the undo button. You don't know how much you miss it until it's gone. The undo button lets you try out a turn before committing to it, so that you know where you'll end up, and how everything will look before you press the submit button. You can use it to figure out how much damage you'll do to a certain unit (if you don't feel like breaking out the calculator). You can use it to figure out if you'll actually kill a unit with the scroll, or without the scroll. With the sword, or without the sword. With both the sword and scroll? With both sword, scroll and fireball? The undo button is there to let you experiment without consequences! I have to say, I use the undo button at least once every turn, most of the time. Here's a video that shows you just how you can use the undo button.
