Horadric Caches are obtained when you complete all 5 Bounties within an act. The caches can contain any Legendary item available within the game, including loot that is exclusive to Horadric Caches. The loot inside the Horadric Cache is “rolled” at the time you receive it, so it will always be level appropriate, meaning you cannot wait to open it at a higher level in hopes that you’ll get higher level loot.
Horadric Cache Legendaries Have Unique Secondary Stats
All of the Horadric Cache specific legendary items have unique secondary stats which are all quite good, with a few of them being flat out game-changing. Arguably the most desired of all the Horadric Cache loots is the Ring of Royal Grandeur due to the amazing customization allowed through its unique secondary stat. The RoRG is an essential item for certain builds – making it easily one of the most sought after items in the game.
The quickest way to obtain a RoRG is by farming Act I Bounties. Act IV Horadric Caches can also drop the RoRG, but the odds of it being in an Act I cache are higher since the loot table is smaller.
Legendary Drop Rates Buffed in 2.1
A post-patch hotfix deployed on September 3 dramatically boosted the drop rate for cache-specific Legendaries – making it easier to obtain those sexy oranges.

D3 Dev Wyatt Cheng was gracious enough to actually share some inside info on Twitter recently…
Note – if your character is capable – try to do bounties on Torment 2 or higher – you’ll have a much higher chance of getting a RRoG. — Wyatt Cheng (@candlesan) September 4, 2014
The table below has sortable views so that you can scan items by slot, or more importantly, quickly find out which Acts offer certain Bounty rewards.
Note: Horadric Caches obtained in Act IV can contain exclusive legendary rewards from all acts. Thus, it’s best to farm Act IV Bounties, which are efficient to begin with, unless you are gunning for a specific exclusive legendary. If there is a particular legendary item that you are after, then farming the Act it’s specific to will increase your chances somewhat since there will be fewer legendaries for it to roll against.
