Marble Pillars are naturally spawning Structures found around the Wooden Thing in a Chess biome in Sandbox Mode or in various Chess biomes in Adventure Mode. Usually, there are Clockwork Monsters and Evil Flowers near them. They can be mined with a Pickaxe or the Pick/Axe to acquire 2-3 Marble pieces (2 + 33% chance to get 1 extra). The pickaxe requires 10 hits to break a Marble Pillar down, whereas the Pick/Axe only requires 8. Though it may use a lot of durability off a pickaxe, it is recommended to mine Marble Pillars so the player can make a Marble Suit for fighting.
