The last battle i fought I had 3 full units of archer firing flaming arrows at it and the towers were firing at it too, still it didn't get a single percent of damage.
How do you destroy them?

The damage percentage is a bit misleading, as they'll be destroyed as soon as they catch fire which seems to happen most of the time if you fire flaming arrows at it... that's the most you can do about it, really.

I've never tried it, but you might be able to use your own siege weaponry (scorpion, onager, etc.) to destroy them.

I was thinking this, but you'd have to sally out to do it most likely. A couple ballistae would probably work marvelously, but they'd get massacred outside the walls. You're inside walls, why give up those powerful defenses to fight outside them?
