Are Bounty Caches Affected by Difficulty Level?(1)Category: GeneralApril-14-2014 2:34 PM PDT (10 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I run bounties on Normal just to burn through them as quick as possible, but I can burn through T1 almost just as fast. Should I be doing them on T1 for a higher percentage drop rate from the caches or should I just keep doing them on normal?

The loot from a Horadric Cache won't change based on the difficulty, but Torment 1 does offer incentives (like an increased drop rate, gold and experience) that help while you're earning a cache. If what you want is to get as many Horadric Caches as possible then a lower difficulty might be optimal, though, since all of the benefits for increasing the difficulty to Torment 1 exist outside of the cache specific loot.

Sorry, just wanted to clarify something. You're very clear about the loot in the cache not changing based on the difficulty. I take that to mean that the loot table does not change.

However, does the "chance" that you'll get a legendary from that fixed loot table increase with each torment level?

For example. Am I just as likely to get a Ring of Royal Grandeur (a cache specific item) from a T1 cache as I am from a T6 cache?

Thanks!


That's a great observation, but more of an oversight on my part rather than precise, selective messaging. The chance to get a Legendary item from a Horadric Cache does not change based on the difficulty you acquired the cache. To use the example provided you'd have the same chance to get the Ring of Royal Grandeur from a cache acquired in Torment 1 as one acquired in Torment 6.
