The Elemental Pillar is a Multi-Smashable Item in Skylanders: Spyro's Universe. When smashed, it rewards everyone who smashed a block with coins, and leaves a hole in the ground. It respawns after a while.
How to Smash Edit
If a Skylander wants to smash an Elemental Pillar, the he or she must have another Skylander with the correct elemental type displayed on the bottom block. For Example, if a Skylander wanted to smash the bottom block which had the Life symbol on it, the Skylander would have to switch to another Skylander or recruit someone with the correct elemental type.
