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.

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.

      Transmog collectors and the community are not particularly happy with personal loot rules used in leveling dungeons since Patch 7.3.5 launch. Blizzard will be reverting the change back in Battle for Azeroth by activating something called "legacy loot mode".
      How Will Legacy Loot Mode Work?
      The loot mode will activate automatically upon entering a dungeon or raid that's trivial for you (your character is 10+ levels higher than the dungeon or raid's intended level). The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party or raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, regardless of your set Loot Specialization. Loot will be tradable and split among members of your party or raid. You can learn more about transmog in our section!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Since the Patch 7.3.5 change to use personal loot rules in leveling dungeons, we’ve heard a lot of feedback from Transmog hunters concerned about how this has affected the ability to collect appearances from older content. We hear you, and agree it’s a problem, so we’ve been working on a more robust solution for Battle for Azeroth. Once these updates are implemented, entering a dungeon or raid that is trivial for you (i.e.: your character is 10 or more levels higher than the dungeon or raid’s intended level) will activate a “legacy loot mode.” That loot mode will work like this:
      The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party. So if you’re in a 5-player dungeon, you’ll get 5 players’ worth of loot. For raids with a flexible raid size (such as Raid Finder), this will act as though there were 20 players in the raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, not just the ones that are designated for your spec. If you have multiple players in the group, the loot will be split among those players, but be tradeable. For example, if you’re clearing with one other player and kill a boss that should drop 4 items, you’ll each be able to pick up two items and trade them between each other if you like. While the personal loot change was a key part of what allowed us to expand leveling dungeons to encompass a wider range of levels, and we’re happy with it in that environment, we recognize that it’s not a great experience for those who enjoy clearing older content for transmog, and hope that these changes will make that more enjoyable once they’re complete. 
      Thanks again for all of the feedback!
