Adria Bug is Back [Solved]
With Patch 2.3.0b being deployed earlier today an old bug came back: one that made Adria invulnerable during her boss fight. This is particularly dangerous for Hardcore character - so keep that in mind when playing.
Update: this bug has now been solved!

As you may have noticed, Patch 2.3.0b launched today, which doesn't contain any gameplay, balance, or content changes and is designed to prepare us for the future launch of Patch 2.4.0.
However, it was recently discovered that a bug that previously existed where Adria could become unable to be targeted or killed has resurfaced in this minor patch. We're actively working on a hotfix to address this issue, but we want players to be aware and we recommend avoiding Adria at this time (particularly with Hardcore characters).
We sincerely apologize for any confusion or frustration this may have caused, and appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
