I am not sure If I correctly understood Wak Chanil Ajaw power: "After capturing a city: May remove 1 non-settlement city-piece in your color and then increase city size in the city at no action cost and no resource cost."

That means that when her Army takes a city she can remove one of the buildings of this city (let say the port) and then increase another city size by creating there a new building without cost? Or this should be done in the same city she just invaded? (but then I do not understand the point, if she destroy a building and build a new one...).

Thanks in advance for your answers...

Yes, it all happens in the city that was just captured. Basically, you can replace one of the buildings. Imagine turning an Academy into a Fortress, or perhaps into an Obelisk if you think the opponent will take the city right back. Maybe instead of a Temple you'd rather have a Market. There are lots of useful possibilities.

It isn't worded "replace a building" to make it clear that if you build an Academy you get 2 ideas, if you build a Temple you get a token, etc. "Replace" could have prompted questions.

A captured a city comes to you angry. You can't build any new buildings in an angry city. Ajaw's ability let's you swap out a building type after capture (ignoring the mood restriction for the moment). This can let you change the city make-up without first upgrading it's mood.

Many times I've would have liked to build a fortress after capturing a city to keep it, but couldn't because of the angry status.

Thanks for the clarification. That makes a lot of sense now.
