Query bulk tiles within a certain geographic area?

I apologize if I missed this being posted already somewhere else.

I've been looking into using the ESRI REST API and was happy to see that there was a query link I could use to fetch individual tiles by x/y coordinates. This works great on fetching small amounts of tiles as the user browses around, but creates a large number of requests. If the user wants to cache tiles ahead of time I have to call each tile in the area they want in advance, interesting through each of the zoom levels and generating a tone of calls. Is there a a REST call I can make to simply fetch a group of tiles?

Thank you in advance for your response.
