Deconstruction can be cast three times in a game, but has a cooldown of four minutes.
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 cast 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.
The Titans Edit
