Deconstruction is an Atlantean Archaic Age god power in Age of Mythology: The Titans that is available to worshipers of Kronos. When invoked, it undoes the construction of an enemy building, therefore removing or destroying it. However, the resources used for the target structures construction are returned to the target's owner.

Deconstruction can be invoked three times in a game, but has a cooldown of four minutes.

Strategy[]

Deconstruction can be used on any building, with the exception of Town Centers, Wonders, and Titan Gates. It is a useful tool for eradicating some powerful key structures, like Strongholds, Temples, or production buildings from an enemy town. Deconstructing structures that are vital for aging up (such as the Temple) could give the player time to overcome their opponent and make a rush. If Deconstruction is used on a Dock, players should make sure the Dock is not already poorly placed. If it is invoked on a Dock that is far from fish shoals close to the shore, it may only allow the enemy to rebuild it on a more favorable location.
