I feel like when the expansion first came out there were lots of people running normal caches, hoarding them, and going to T6 on whatever act and opening them with ridiculous drop rates. They noticed this only after rings were had and their fix was to hard code in the drop as if it's normal no matter where you open it. Maybe they should have hard coded it where it was T1 no matter where you opened it? I mean the drop rate now is just abysmal.
it doesn't help that I'm a monk so I need to run 3 set bonuses to not friggin' die every two seconds in T4. Most other classes only run 2 sets, the ring is less mandatory.
Caches had a bug where you could get T6 contents (in terms of gems and gold) if you opened them in T6 game, regardless of where you got them. There was never a bug that allowed you to get the T6 drop rate for caches, because prior to the last patch, Caches had the same drop rate regardless of difficulty.
Cache specific legendary drop rate before was around 1 legendary per 10 caches. Now it scales with torment (presumably at the same rate as the regular buff being 15% per torment, multiplicative). It's still probably more efficient to speed farm normal caches though.
