I'm not sure how many posts have been about people's taste toward the Mage Tower, but I'd like to give my two cents if it's ok. As the title says, as a casual player going into Legion, I had no real motivation to explore other specs to my classes that I was able to max level (though I was able to max all 12 classes by 7.2) I had no reason to. Raiding was only occasional and even when we did, we took our time and managed to down most bosses on normal and heroic. Specs like Fire Mage, Affliction Warlock, Balance & Guardian Druid, Subtlety & Assassination Rogue, Unholy Death Knight, and Survival Hunter seemed daunting to play because I had the preconception that it was a lot of micromanaging debuffs, your own buffs, and sticking to a strict rotation.
When Mage Towers were first announced, I honestly had to ambition to complete or do any of them. Sure the artifact rewards looked cool and all but after the initial try on my Ret Pally, I died faster then I could type "Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker". If it was more trouble then my casual ass could muster to complete, I had no desire to complete it.
Fast forward to the end of Legion and Blizzard announces that once BfA hits, no more tries to get the Artifact Appearances, and they made it so the Mage Tower was permanently up.
To be fair, being a much higher item level helped incredibly, but that's aside the point Getting the appearances on my mains after trial and error felt incredible. But I dreaded trying aforementioned class/specs, mainly because I hardly had the desire to try them. Sometime later, an ample amount of determination, many youtube tutorials, and forehead slamming on 10% wipes, I managed to get 33/36 (Healing Black Rook Hold sucks ass). I could confidently say I learned each and every spec and could even more confidently.
Now in BfA I can switch all specs with relative ease and I find certain content much easier now when world questing or doing mythics, and it's thanks to the Mage Tower. Personal challenges like the challenge dungeons in MoP and WoD, as well as Mage Towers in Legion are great motivators for players to get better at the game with excellent rewards to motive them towards getting better without wasting too much resources. I sincerely hope in the next major patches we get more of this to boost player initiative. I'm honestly shocked we haven't gotten anything like them as of yet, but I'd like to hope for the best going forward.
TL/DR: Mage towers helped me learn specs I was too afraid to try because I thought I was bad at the game with them. We should have more of this.
