I did one quick Rift on Torment 3 yesterday, and got a Greater Rift key. It had been a few weeks since I last played, so I also found 3 set items and 1 legendary item (the Puzzle Ring!) in my mail. All of them were awesome.

I got the puzzle ring too, but I didn't think it looked very good.  Is it supposed to be special?

It's got a unique ability that gives you more drop chances for legendaries through a summoned treasure goblin. Just let it pick up normal-quality items (ie. white ones), and after 16 of those it'll drop a magic item that has a chance of being a legendary.

Puzzle ring is great, socket it and add boon of the hoarder to it.

You get 30% chance of a gold drop and boon adds 30% more gold. I pull down about 10 million gold an hour on act 1 bounties in the field using it, great way to keep your gold count up. Add to that getting the odd legendary as well its great as a farming ring.

Anyone on the XB1 hit the nasty item-stealing bug?

I'm super-excited about the new stuff, but frankly losing stuff is the kind of thing that would put me off the game for a while.

Recently hit 70 with my Crusader, using a Lightning-Hammerdin build I found on the forums.  For the pros out there, what's the most efficient way to gear up for higher level torment?  I'm talking T2 and up, I can solo a T1 Greater Rift in under 15 minutes pretty easily.  Last time I tried T2 it was downright brutal, but I think my DPS was only around 150K.  I've since picked up quite a few set and legendary items, so now it's pushing 300K.  This morning I was actually able to clear a GR10.  When I started I don't think I made it past GR6.  If I'm not mistaken 12 is where torment 2 kicks in, so that's why I'm thinking I may need to gear up just a bit more to be safe.

One thing I find odd is I'm picking up legendary weapons, but their DPS is over 1K or more less than the yellow I picked up gambling when I started.  Do the higher stats only drop in torment?  Is it best to farm bosses in adventure mode on torment, run regular rifts, or run greater?

Run Greater Rifts and regular rifts in Torment.  I don't think your difficulty setting matters for greater rifts.  If you are looking for gear it's best to fail the trial so you start at GR1.

Yeah that's what I've been doing, will keep going.  Just wondered if the higher level 70 items drop only on torment.  Maybe I've just had bad luck.

there are ton of thigns that don't happen or drop below torment.  If you are level 70 you should never be playing lower than T1

As far as I'm aware, there are no new items that drop once you go above Torment 1, so you're not restricting yourself from loot (beyond the reduced drop chances) by playing at that level. If you want to see how the DPS for your weapons has been calculated (the big one you have is probably caused by a damage effect mixed in among the regular stats, which means it has less of the other possible stats available), you can hit right or left (don't remember which) on the d-pad to see the range used by the random number generator.

Thanks for all the tips.  Managed to compete a GR12, but ran out of time before I could get it done.  I'll run a T1 rift, get another keystone, and start back at GR1.  I think I only need four more items and everything should either be a level 70 legendary or set piece.  Another run like the last should get me all set.  Once I gear this guy out it's back to my hardcore witch doctor.

...and pay dirt!  Found a Maximus blade this morning on my first Greater Rift.  Finally a weapon with higher DPS, though I am losing around 10K of life per hit.  Think I have a level 70 Cindercoat in my stash, may be time to switch over and try a Fire Crusader build.

I have a 70 of each class now.  There's no way I would have believed you if you told me that would happen before console version came out.  For it, it's the best possible experience playing this from the couch.  Adventure mode helps tremendously as well.  What a great game option and addition that was missing at launch.

Congrats!  I would like to do that eventually.  Did you roll up a hardcore character?

Too bad I'm stuck in the PC version, I'm playing a HC seasonal character and i get the feeling that I am the only one.  When I join the HC chat channel there are a dozen people in it, but none of them seasonal.  It's a lonely life.

Hardcore just doesn't appeal to me.  I rush in to fights with reckless abandon sometimes and try levels above where I should be.  I wouldn't get very far.

I finally picked this up on PS4 if anyone wants to game together. My PSN is is Working_Mike.

I think I'm level 8 right now, but I'd be happy to roll up a co-op character so we can level about the same.

I'm still playing from time to time.  I've got one 70, and a smattering of other lower levels.  I think the game has a system that will boost lower characters up temporarily when they join with a higher level.  If you see me on, feel free to send me an invite.
