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.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS:  YES. Ranged DPS - will consider all, but would love to pick up a hunter, mage, and elemental shaman. Melee DPS - prefer enhance shaman or survival hunter.
      Healers: NO. No current needs.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Method released their kill video for Antorus' penultimate boss earlier today and Limit followed suit soon after:

      Today also saw another big bunch of Aggramar kills, with the total number of guilds on 10/11 rising to 19. We had two more Asia kills (regional 3rd and 4th place), as Skyline and Ding Xin grabbed the 10th and 11 overall spots, Libertad with the EU 6th in 12th, Honestly with the US/OC 3rd in 13th followed by 6 more EU guilds.
      Argus survived another day and has only 1 more left before Method and Exorsus head into the second rest, with US guilds already in week 2 and Asia guilds getting a bit more time after EU servers reset.

      Adois (Illidan-US) was Limit's fifth healer. He sent his other co-healers spoofed links that forced them to disconnect to get a raid spot for himself.
      Limit is currently at 10/11M in Antorus. Jeathebelle posted a series of interesting tweets today, revealing that one of their healers DDoSed other raid members to get a raid spot.
      Placeholder for tweet 940126010703597570 He also added that the Restoration Shaman was the worst players on the roster.
      Placeholder for tweet 940126081251725312 Limit only found out, because Adois started sending short links to other healers.
      Placeholder for tweet 940131880279662592 The only healer who had clicked the link had disconnected from voice chat, discord, and the game. Adois always miraculously came online to be available at the time of the disconnects.
      Placeholder for tweet 940132077936111616 Adois has been doing this for a long time to get a spot for Avatar and Kil'jaeden in Tomb.
      Placeholder for tweet 940132413254066176 Placeholder for tweet 940145295534510086 We wish Limit the best of luck and hope that this negative experience won't affect their Mythic progress in Antorus!

      A Mythic only phase video, many Aggramar kills and Method GM Sco explains why Argus isn't dead yet in detail.
      It's been a few days since we've checked in on the Antorus Mythic progress race, but not that much has happened since then as, thankfully, Argus is still alive! The big news is that a whole bunch of guilds got past Aggramar, resulting in us getting some footage of the Mythic-only phase of Argus the Unmaker, courtesy of Chinese guild Style War:
      You can also follow Style War live as they tackle Argus Mythic right here:

      Everything started with Finnish guilds Memento getting the World 4th on Aggramar, catching up to the standard top 3 of Method, Exorsus and Limit, followed by the above mentioned Style War, who managed to nab the Asia first as well. Bleached Bones (EU 4th)  were next on the Argus access train, followed by Alpha (Asia 2nd), ScrubBusters (EU 5th) and Easy (US/OC 2nd), and so we now have 9 guilds progressing on the probably final boss of Legion. We then have a large group consisting of 22 guilds that have downed Coven of Shivarra and are at Aggramar's door, with another 11 still fighting the Coven. Today should bring Method's Aggramar World First video, which will swiftly be followed by Limit's and perhaps Exorsus' own videos as well, so stay tuned for that.
      Today also saw Method's GM Sco reveal the very complex and intricate reason why they still hadn't killed Argus, as he explains in this video:
      As the second reset approaches, Method and Exorsus still have 2 days to make Antorus into quite an easy race, whereas Limit only have one to finish it all up before the significant influx of gear that is the 2nd round of clears. With so many bosses dying on the first and second days, it's at least a little bit of a relief that Argus wasn't that much of a pushover. Now let's see if he can salvage the entire raid by living a bit longer.
