Breakdown is an Invention perk that, when Smithing, has a 0.8% (0.88% on a level 20 item) chance per rank to give the components of the created item, without disassembling the item. Does not work when smelting ores. It can be created in tool gizmos.
When the perk triggers, it prompts the message: Your breakdown perk has activated and given you the components you would've gotten had you disassembled your: <item>.
