Mage tower artifact skin question

General
Need someone to confirm this please, (could not find answer in forum history if there is answer to it please link me to the thread).

When we unlock all mage tower skins for only one spec (haven't done quest for others) lets say feral for example.

What happens after that when we do mage tower for guardian spec later?
Do i need to do the 10 RBG wins again because i didn't own that appearance at the moment i farming the other 3 variants for feral?
Thanks in advance.
I think it's separate for each spec, sadly.

But not sure.
I believe they said to change it so it unlocks on all of them. BUT I think you still need to have it unlocked at the time you do so. If I recall correctly the change was so you no longer have to apply a skin to work towards unlocks.
Thanks for feedback folks.

Please @bluepost. Can someone confirm?
Blizzard change Tower skin in 7.3 so the 3 skins version will unlock for your other spec once you unlock the base skin.
Any progress for the RBG/KJ/Dungeon tints on a character AFTER 7.3 seem to unlock the tint even if you don't have the base tint unlocked for that spec at the time of completing it.

On my druid I unlocked the guardian base and dungeon skin pre -7.3, then the KJ tint after 7.3, then yesterday I unlocked the feral skin and this also unlocked the KJ tint for feral despite not having killed KJ after unlocking the skin, but the dungeon skin hasn't unlocked yet (I haven't done many dungeons since 7.3 on my druid).

Tx! that's what i needed.

I think this may be what you are looking for (from the patch notes)? :)

Challenge Appearances – You are no longer required to be using your current specialization’s Challenge Artifact Appearance to gain progress towards unlocking its 3 color variants. You can now gain progress towards unlocking the 3 color variants of your Artifact’s Challenge Appearances set while you are in any spec and using any Artifact appearance, as long as you have unlocked the base challenge appearance for a given spec.

That is nice thanks for sharing that knowledge.

Nope, that patch note did not specify my question that's why i made this thread, but Snafoo's example did answer it.

Anyway, thanks for blue feedback.
Same as the Hidden Skin variants (2nd, 3rd & 4th colours); they have combined progress across all spec's.

Does this also work if you have another weapon transmogrified over your artifact? Or does this invalidate the progress?
Thanks for any answers.
