Below you'll find a list of hotfixes for the month of June which address various gameplay and service issues affecting Diablo III.
Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented, while others may require a restart to go into effect. As always, please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update.
It is no longer possible for hostile monsters to enter New Tristram through its eastern gate (any monster that attempts to cross this threshold should now instantly die)

Monsters Can No Longer Enter Tristram
Dragging monsters to Tristram has been the bane of many Hardcore character. Blizzard is fighting that exact issue with the latest Hotfixes.
Today a hotfix went live which makes it no longer possible for hostile monsters to enter New Tristram through its eastern gate (any monster that attempts to cross this threshold should now instantly die).
If you believe that certain players previously used this tactic against you in order to intentionally grief your character, please avoid calling them out by name on the forums and instead report them by submitting a ticket so that we can investigate their accounts and take the necessary actions.
Unfortunately, as stated in our Diablo III Restorations Policy, Customer Support cannot revive fallen hardcore heroes for any reason and hardcore heroes cannot be rolled back. As such, your hero's valorous deeds will simply have to be remembered, like so many other fallen Nephalem.
Demonic Essence MP Farming
KingKongor has posted an informative video, explaining higher MPs and not necessarily a better way to get Demonic Essences. It's good to try and find a sweet spot for your speed of demon-slaying and play on that, instead of trying to play on the highest possible Monster Power. You can leave feedback to KingKongor in his topic located here.
