Nephalem rifts are a randomized dungeons system. It doesn't matter where you open the rift or the difficuly in which you open it, the place of the rift and the number of level is decided at random.

From the Diablo Wikia

The layouts stem from taking the tilesets and dungeons of the game and re-organizing/shuffling them. Monsters are likewise re-shuffled, found in combinations otherwise not present. The rifts have 1-10 levels. Each level is effectively a different dungeon, with a different monster combination.[4] They are accessed via Nephalem Obelisks.

  • I find it hard to believe that the difficulty of the game in which the rift is open has no effect on the rift. Can you confirm this? In my limited experience, the difficulty matches that of the game.
