Periodically emits Pulse Waves to the surrounding tiles, damaging both allied and enemy units.
—Description of operations featuring the Originium Altar

The Originium Altar is a static device in Arknights. It is an apparatus used in ancient Sarkaz "cannibalism"/"witchcraft" rituals.[1]

Originium Altars periodically releases a Pulse Wave that inflicts True damage to both friendlies and enemies in its wake. Therefore, it is prudent to deploy friendly units away from the Altars; otherwise, additional healing is required to mitigate the damage taken. Conversely, try to stall or redirect enemies inside the Altar's radius so that the Pulse Waves' damage will do most of the work.

Periodically releases gas in the surrounding 4 tiles, inflicting heavy damage to enemies.
R8-6 description

In R8-6, a Patriot's Originium Altar is present, which is identical to regular Originium Altars but its Pulse Wave deals much more damage and only affects enemies, albeit having a longer activation interval, and can be distinguished by having a brighter crystal.
