The Horadric Cache is a type of item in the Adventure Mode of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. It is given to players after completing all five bounties of an act. It contains random loot that is scaled to the level of the player at the time it was acquired. It can contain gold, items, Blood Shards, crafting ingredients, blacksmithing plans (guaranteed to have at least two suitable for level) and gems. When clicked on, the Cache will disappear, dropping its contents on the ground.
The item level of its contents are determined when it is acquired, but the item stats are not determined until the cache is opened. For example, if a level 70 Demon Hunter acquires a cache, and a level 60 Witch Doctor opens it, the loot will roll at level 70, but smart loot will roll stats of the Witch Doctor.
The items within only depend on character level at the moment the cache is obtained. It is, therefore, a very popular tactic to farm the Caches on lower difficulties where one can obtain these caches effortlessly, gaining a bunch of items. The chance to drop legendary items and Blood Shards increases with each difficulty. At Torment VI, there is a guaranteed drop of a Legendary item, although it can only be one of the Cache-specific items (see below). At T9 and T10, there is a 20% and 50% chance to get two Legendary items.
Torment-only legendary items (including the legendary health potions) can only drop from the cache if that cache was obtained on Torment I or above.
There are many items that can only be obtained from Horadric Caches in a specific act, although Act IV caches can only drop items from any other act.
Items from Act I are themed after King Leoric, Act II items are from vaults of the Coven, Act III items are the seven sins in form of items from the stash of Azmodan, and Act V items are the artifacts of the Reapers. All these items have special, sometimes irreplaceable affixes, and can drop as early as at level 12.
Each Horadric Cache obtained at level 70 is also guaranteed to have the corresponding Crafting Material (last entry in each section). Drop rates depend on difficulty at which the Cache was acquired: 2 per cache (Normal-Master), 3 per cache (Torment I-VI) or 4 per cache (Torment VII-X).
If Bonus Act bounties are completed, two Caches drop, although the second Cache will have reduced chances to contain no Legendary items (but still guaranteed materials, gold, and recipes).
