Several dev tweets went out today expanding on the available info on what exactly unlocking artifact appearances will look like once Legion finishes. Some parts, like Mage Tower and M+15, you'll have to do wile Legion is still current, but others will be obtainable in later expansions as well. There are also specific details regarding Mage Tower and M+15:

Yea- honestly I was excited to be challenged because I liked the gold challenge in mop but the mage tower is ridiculous. Most of my friends did 100 or more attempts before getting it. I put in about 20 or 30 and then said fuck it, I'll wait for power creep. I've been raiding at a heroic level since wrath I don't need a silly thing to validate my skill. PS im a prot paladin so yea- I'll be waiting

I sort of wish they'd downscale your ilvl to 900 for that - kinda defeats the purpose of a 'challenge' to walk in at 945 and blow it out of the water. 

That does not mean that I'm elitist or anything like that - no way I'd clear that without sinking about 50,000 shards into it.

Finally some certainty, and I can relax a bit.

Now if we can just get an answer about the other Prestige rewards...

So the only checklist items before Legion ends are:

  • Mage Tower on every spec
  • Mythic+ 15

Getting gear on all my alts should be a cake. (915 LFR, 930 Greater Rift).
The biggest issue are the legendaries.

Legendaries aren't an issue. They specifically only used transmog that was already in the game for legendaires so there was no issue with having to hunt down a specific legendary to get an appearance. Look at the wowhead page for each one and you'll find the identical item. That's how I understood it anyway.

I believe he means legendaries that will help make the challenges easier.

Some may be but I highly doubt, you will just walk in and "blow them out of the water" first try. some are certainly going to be a pain in higher gear/legendary dependent. Take the BM hunter - without a healing legendary it's ridiculously  hard. If you got the pants, it's a cakewalk... I'd assume the same is true for Tank challenges as I hear they are quite tough. I for myself don't think the challenge will diminish. You still have to invest a lot of time and attempts. So whoever got the appearances - no matter how - well done.

Edit: See Granis' post above.

Yeah I find it odd they don't let us be able to unlock the mage tower ones....since that content is basically made to be scaled down. I mean it already is a separate instance so why not? But I guess the main reason is because like every expansion, the classes wont play the same in which the challenges were made since they are probably going to reinvent the wheel when it comes to the classes again.

P.S.

The 15 keystone is understandable since that is basically like the challenge dungeon sets of past.

Maybe they could unlock some challenge looks, if you completed one come the next expansion. I think unlocking every look for one unlocked would be asking way too much ;) but maybe the ones for the class or the challenge or whatnot... Didn't they do something similar with the Challenger Weapons when Legion released?

TBH i highly doubt something like that will happen...

In all fairness, after doing all challenges (trying to do most of them), the Agatha encounter feels more like a glorified gear check. When compared to the Twins, Tauren and the Worm, Xylem, and God-Queen, at least those require a higher degree of awareness. Agatha is more of "how fast/hard you can dps", than anything else.

I've read from several sources that you should be able to get 1 legendary a week if you do all the PvE content. Even if the legendary you want is the very last one, you should have plenty of time.

So, one question I've had seems to be answered here: [Balance of Power] will still be 'live' after Legion ends? I still want my gummy bear but he's not a high priority alt.

I’m surprised no one brought up a question about the RBG tint of the mage tower appearance. Does it just kind of stay there forever, so if you unlocked the mage tower appearance during legion and you win 10 RBGs at any time next expac you get the tint? If anybody knows the answer for this specific tint that would be awesome.

I feel like this about the tank challenge. Waiting til I get heroic gear from the next raid to try again.

I think they will scale up challenge mode for the next tier.

If they do this, they are going to screw a lot of people that were just waiting to Antorus to complete the mage tower...

Since Devs say "all artifact appearences" (with the exception of Mage Tower and Mythic 15+ ones), does this include DH's Azzinoth Warglaives skin? Will it be available to get post-Legion?

Do you mean Arsenal: The Warglaives of AzzinothArsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth from Black Temple Timewalking? I don't think it's going anywhere.

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."
