- Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Changed to an honor talent. No longer increases self-healing done for the duration, but Guard will now also apply to the closest nearby ally within 10 yards. Absorption amount increased by 100%.
- Hotfix (2012-10-16): "
- Guard will no longer fade from the Monk when her Ox Statue applies Guard to another player.
- Glyph of Guard will no longer prevent the Monk's Ox Statue from applying Guard to other players.
- Skull Banner and Sanctuary of the Ox can now stack, and neither effect will overwrite the other.
- The non-glyphed version of Guard will be cancelled should a Monk apply Glyph of Guard and cast the new version.
- A Monk's existing Guard effect will now stack with Guard provided by other friendly Brewmaster Monks."
