comment How much higher is the legendary drop rate in the Torment difficulties?
Note that there are certain legendaries that only drop in Torment I - VI. Also, item quality is unaffected by difficulty (e.g. a level 60 Nailbiter found in Normal has the exact same potential as a level 60 Nailbiter found in Torment VI).

comment When do set and legendary items start dropping?
@Doc The consensus I've seen is that farming for legendaries is pretty consistently faster at Torment I than at the higher levels, since any increase in drop rate is mitigated by the decrease in clear speed due to tougher mobs. The list you cited for Torment-exclusive Legendaries appears to be RoS only, and isn't yet live (and will probably only be available for those with the expansion).

@Doc I've updated my answer; I'm not certain if there is a correlation between difficulty tiers and legendaries, though, as there is no longer an implicit magic find boost in higher difficulty levels.

comment How does loot work?
@DavidYell As you progress, you'll find that some "crappy" white drops can actually be exceptionally good, simply by virtue of the number of linked sockets. A 5L or 6L white item is generally better than a 3L, even if the 3L has great stats.

comment What should I do with my excess gold?
Given the relatively advanced state of the beta, and the feedback I've seen from people actively in the beta, gold will have very specific (and important) uses after the auction house closes. This is entirely answerable without it being "primarily opinion-based". Voting to reopen.
