Ramaladni's Gift Rarity
Nevalistis made a post with some info on the drop rules for the much sought after Ramaladni's Gift

It is not, however, limited to Greater Rifts. It can drop in any game mode. (Official Forums)
To further clarify, does Ramaladni's Gift drop only at Torment level or higher, or at all levels?Did some checking in to clarify a few points:
Hope that clears up some confusion. (Official Forums)
- Ramaladni's Gift is considered a Torment Only item and begins dropping in Torment I
- It can drop from any source (monsters, chests, etc.) in any game mode
- It acts just like any other Torment-only Legendary and follows similar drop rules
Known Bugs and Current Hotfixes
There are still a few bugs left to squash in Patch 2.1. One of them prevents Greater Rifts from spawning enough enemies to complete the progress bar. Another is related to achievements not being displayed to some players - while the devs work on a solution, a suggested workaround by redditor xMikeh is to log in to a different region and then back to yours. There has also been quite a few hotfixes applied to the patch already. Check the posts below!

We're definitely aware that some Greater Rifts are still unable to be completed because of a lower enemy density (or because they are filled with weak enemies, like Random mentioned). While these cases should be relatively few and far between, we're working on reducing and hopefully eliminating their occurrence.
One question I have for all of you: are you unable to complete regular Rifts, Greater Rifts, or both? (Knowing the answer to this will help us target our efforts better.) (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Achievements Display Bug
We’ve received some reports from players who are currently unable to view their achievements in-game after updating to patch 2.1.0. We are actively investigating this issue, and hope to have a resolution in place soon.
There is a temporary workaround however that you can try if you experience this issue, but please keep in mind that it may not work for all players - please exit Diablo III completely and re-launch the game from the Battle.net desktop app. You may need to do this a few times, but doing this should make the issue disappear.
If this issue persists after re-launching the game client, or if you experience any other game-related issues while playing Diablo III, please report them in the Bug Report forum so that we can investigate further.
If you’re experiencing technical issues with the patching process, connecting to Battle.net after installing the patch, or errors while playing a newly-patched game, please visit our support site or post in the Technical Support forum for assistance.
Thanks, and welcome to patch 2.1.0! (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
