There has been confirmation of Shrines - Sites on the map that can be claimed for certain bonuses. This is a possible addition to that list.
It is, essentially, a WftO version of a Mana Vault.

The Blood Fountain

Built by ancient Vampires in ages unknown, the Blood Fountains are possessed of a limited form of sentience and teleportation magic, allowing it to know loyalty to those who have claimed the surrounding area as their own, and to send the collected blood to its master.

Passive Effect: Provides a small trickle of Blood, which will increase as you claim more Blood Fountains
Activated Effect: Can summon a Vampiric Thrall to defend it from the grasping paws of enemies. The Vampiric Thrall lasts for 1.5 min, or until enemies are driven off, then vanishes. Cooldown 3 min after Thrall vanishes.

Mentor Quotes
  • Upon discovery: I don't believe it, Underlord! It is one of the fabled Blood Fountains! These were constructed by Vampires years ago, in order to sate their bloodthirst. Perhaps it can be put to use...
  • If threatened: Keeper! Your Blood Fountain is being encroached upon! Defend it!

You may consider the blue ( aka mana ) version of it.

As for protection - I'd suggest an automatic one and not that strong, probably enough to keep enemy imps and weak creatures away.

Simburgur has already revealed the replacement for mana vaults - Bloodlings.

Beat one down - > drag it to your prison, throw it in the torture chamber -> endless extra mana! They're the Everlasting Gobstoppers of torture!

That's far more awesome and horrific than some shrine.

A new mana vault and the Bloodlings are not mutually exclusive ;)

Something like this will happen. Mana mechanics are quite complex, but there will be a shrine that gives you mana in one form or another.
