There are certain items in the environment that can be destroyed by attacking it but are not directly targetable. You can't click on them to destroy them (like breakable urns), you have to hold your ground in front of one and swing at it or shoot something at it.
e.g., fire urns in crypts
Are there any benefits to breaking these down?
As far as I can tell, breaking them doesn't count toward the "break stuff achievements" (Breaker, Destructor and Bull In A China Shop) and they don't seem to drop anything. It seems as they are only there for aesthetic reasons. But is there something that I'm missing?
