With 6.1 being launched tomorrow, the garrison follower ilvl cap is being raised from 655 to 675. Once you raise 2 (or 3) followers beyond ilvl 660, you become eligible for the BRF cache quests, and similar to the last tier the quality of caches you receive is based on how many bosses you've killed at a given difficulty.

Since we jumped directly into heroic, unless you've been pugging a lot of normal BRF, you probably don't have the required kills to get heroic caches and would only get a 665 reward. However if you were willing to wait a bit before getting your followers to 660, you could potentially trigger a mythic cache right off the bat.

The best research I can find suggests you need 21 kills at a level to get a cache of the next level (2 clears + 1 which is the same reason HM required 15 kills). If you've been there for every guild kill, you should currently be at 12 heroic boss kills. Assuming we get at least one down tonight (13) and repeat all kills by Thursday next week (18) you will be really close to the mythic cache requirement. I am also reading that the boss kills don't need to be "lootable" kills....you can re-kill bosses and still have it count towards the total, and if true I'm just going to heroic pug gruul 2 or 3 times.

I know it's a bit convoluted, but the 30ilvl swing between normal and mythic is a big difference. I'll keep reading based on what people find out tomorrow and post back here if anything changes.

Bad news - Blizzard switched it from the PTR, and current theory is that you need 8 Mythic HM kills to get a mythic BRF cache.

Good news - This might mean that we already qualify for heroic BRF caches, as we killed heroic HM enough.

Still trying to get info - blizzard stated they don't want to give us the answer so I'm just reading through people's stats.

Looks like we need the Mythic + Gold tier of HM caches to qualify for Mythic BRF caches. It takes 8~ Mythic kills in HM to get those caches.

Mythic HM anyone?

For the sake of further clarification, Highmaul progression is not required to unlock Blackrock Foundry Raid Missions. Progressing in Highmaul provides an alternate way to unlock Blackrock Foundry Raid Missions, but it's not required.

This leads me to believe you either need a crap ton of H BRF kills, H Blackhand, Mythic BRF kills or any combination thereof.

Mythic HM would be simpler.

BTW, That was a direct quote from a blue.

I did some research and there are people that have 21 Heroic kills (with at least one after the patch) in brf that are getting mythic caches. Also one of them said they hadn't killed blackhand

Did they say anything about having M HM or a certain number of H BRF kills before the patch hit?

There's a ton of information out there, all of it is kind of confusing.

The most common thing being said is having 8 M HM kills and at least 15-21 H BRF kills to get a M BRF cache.

There's very few saying that they are getting the M Cache with only 21 H BRF kills.

The one guy said he didn't have anything done in mythic hm but had 21 Heroic brf kills and 1 of the kills was after the patch.
