Thanks for all the responses and offers to open up portals guys - as well as many others who've contacted me ingame with the offer. The generosity of this community never ceases to amaze me!
For those wondering, no, the ring won't be for his soon to be lvl70 toon... it's kinda pointless rolling lvl60 stats when a lvl70 rare ring is better and easier to get good stats on. It's for his other toons who are around lvl3-23.
FWIW, I leveled my Crusader up to 70 mid way through Act 3 through just equipping a Vit HF with 180Vit and 300LR and keeping the difficulty at Torment level. My mate does want to play through the campaign with his other toons first so a Vit HF ring will help him crank up the difficulty and level up faster. And he has a bunch of leveling weapons from me too so, by lvl40 when sticking a Marquise Ruby into a socketed weapon starts to drop in effectiveness, he'll have some new weapons to use.

Ie, even if ur opening old machines, if u choose T3 and your character is level 70, then the ubers will be at lvl70 and T3.
So do you mean that the the ubers are dependent on the difficulty level of the game and the character that opens the portal?
Because I was under the impression that the game difficulty and the host's toon level would take precedence in determining the difficulty. But then that's just my assumption based on when I join my mate's games when he's got a lvl40 toon and everything is scaled to lvl40.
So if it's dependent on the player who opens the portal, I ought to be using my lowest level toon that's still lvl60+, my mate should get to lvl70 first and equip all the lvl70 rares I gave him (which should get him to be able to survive in T1) and we should have another two players with OP lvl70 characters.
