Naval missions will reward the Hellfire Citadel raid chests.
With the addition of raid finder level caches players, especially casuals, should be able to easily obtain these and should also have a good focal point in which to enter normal mode raids at a quicker pace than the past.
How many bosses do i have to kill to get these? I killed 10 so far on normal. But still got the LFR Chest Mission today.
This is the response I got from a ticket I put in.
thank you for contacting our customer support department.
While the exact requirements to get a higher level version of the HFC cache from a mission are not openly known, I can tell you that 9 kills are not enough. Just keep raiding normal mode in HFC, and after a while the rewards for new HFC missions will also be for normal mode rewards.
I understand that it may be a bit confusing, as this system is different from the rewards for the Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry mission rewards, where you would get one for a higher level then the one you were raiding in, but this change was indeed intended by the developers, it's not a bug.

A few observations made over the weeks:
The first week was mess up, obviously, and while my friends seem to show the symptoms of "WTF" expressed here, I got my shipyard to level 2 around saturday. By then, I had 12\13N and around 6HC. I got heroic mission right away.
I have two alts, none with really comfortable ilvl to run HFC normal. Both got shi*yard to level 2, and only on one of them I ran HFC LFR first wing.
The character who ran HFC LFR - got
The character who did
run HFC LFR - got
Unless Blizzard has really got their stuff together, beware if you are gearing your alts. Might be better to rush shipyard to level 2, and only then run LFR.(##RESPBREAK##)16##DELIM##hatman555##DELIM##
Ship yards bugged. First week i got normal HFC then i did a Raid finder, it went back down to raid finder. havnt gotten anything for the past 2 weeks and i've been doing Normal up to Fel Lord zakul
Do these contain tier pieces? I don't see any in the "Contains" tab :(
Well I've found my reason to keep up on my naval missions and an answer for people new to endgame as to what they're good for... Some really nice stuff in a box you get for just timewalking or clicking a ship map if you don't have the chance to raid often.
This bags always give you what you already have or gear that you do not want because you got something better.
In my last one i was hoping please give me whatever but no hands and what gave me?. Hands!.
It's not about what cache you have in BRF that matters for the pre-qualified level, it's how many bosses you have killed and on what difficulty ex: 21 normal kills = no HFC cache upgrade but you will gain the hc cache for BRF, but if you have killed 21 or more hc bosses in BRF then you will get the normal and mythic version respectively, 21mythic kills = hc and mythic respectively, i also presume that enough mythic kills will unlock the mythic HFC cache but would need a blue post to confirm.
Can tell you, its not a random drop, its only gloves.
Just checking up on getting the Naval Mission to upgrade from LFR to Normal. So far, according to the WoW Community Site, my main character has 89 HFC LFR kills, and he's still only getting LFR caches from Naval Missions.
So is it so many full clears? Like I have 11 kills of the first 3 bosses, fewer on the rest. Do I need to get so many full clears worth? Do I just have to pug some normal fights/clears?
To upgrade the chest from "LFR" to "normal", is it just boss kills that matter, or do i need to also clear it on next level?
I don't think there's a correlation between boss kills and level of chest at all, I had zero boss kills in any raid (LFR or otherwise), and my naval reward for the Iron Fleet Treasure chest has always been normal.
Started raiding, and the Iron Fleet Treasure Chest has stayed at normal HFC loot levels (so far) after about 2 full clears of Highmaul, and 3 clears of BRF. Working on second ever clear of HFC (LFR) and still getting normal chests.
