Kadala sells Items for Blood Shards. Since I am fresh 70, I do not have the gear yet to do Torment. But does Torment actually provide different stat ranges for items bought from Kadala?

So basically the idea is to do Bounties and Rifts on Master and then switch to Torment to spend the Blood Shards?

As far as I've seen, iLevel and rarity determines stat ranges. Difficulty doesn't affect quality of drops meaning anything you can buy/find in normal, can be found in T6. – VanBuzzKill Mar 27 '14 at 22:08
@Katustrawfic That is wrong. Normal to Master has the same stat range. Torment has a different one. – Assylum Mar 27 '14 at 22:38
The Torment difficulty description specifically states that some legendaries only drop in torment. – Sterno Mar 28 '14 at 11:11
@Assylum no, you're incorrect. Torment has the same stat range as all other difficulties. The only difference is that some legendary/set items are exclusive to torment difficulties. – Doc Mar 28 '14 at 18:00

No item, at all, has different stat ranges based on difficulty, regardless of where the item was acquired. This has been mentioned several times in blue posts. Some blue posts that corroborate this:

That said, there are exclusive items available only in torment. These items only drop in torment and are unavailable from Kadala, even if you buy while in torment mode, as mentioned in this blue post.
