Destroy icon.png Destroy is the action used to break structures. Destroying structures drains drains Phlegm. Structures take % damage while being Destroyed, once the structure reaches 100% damage it will break. The % damage done is related to your remaining Phlegm and that structure's Soak Value, so your rate of destruction slows down as your Phlegm is drained. Attempting to Destroy icon.png Destroy Claimed stuctures is a Crime and will leave Scent icon.png Scents and summonable Evidence Vandalism.png Evidence of Waste.

Most structures have a Soak Value which determines how much Phlegm a pilgrim needs in order to deal damage to that structure, having less than that value will cause you to do 0 damage to that structure when attempting to Destroy icon.png Destroy it. The Phlegm needed is roughly 2x the Soak Value. Some structures have such a high Soak Value that you will most likely be unable to Destroy them by regular means. In those cases Greek Fire icon.png Greek Fire can be used. Using Salvage icon.png Salvage, when it is possible, will ignore Soak Value.
