Destroy is an extremely powerful channeled threshold Strength ability. When activated, the user will proceed to hit their target four times, with each hit dealing 37.6-188% ability damage. The ability deals one hit every 1.2 seconds and the entire channel last for 4.2 seconds. The target is initially stunned for the first 3.6 seconds of this ability, and bound for the remainder. This ability is one of the most powerful melee threshold abilities, only inferior to Assault in damage but having a shorter cooldown. With the Berserk ability and the best gear, stats, prayers and potions, it is capable of hitting over 8500 per hit.

The Ranged and Magic equivalents of Destroy are Rapid Fire and Asphyxiate.

The initial hit has a guaranteed stun (similar to Asphyxiate), even in case of missing (splashing). This makes it a very potent ability at stunnable bosses and PvP.

Destroy's cooldown is shared with Hurricane.
