~20 siphons or less from my legendary staff
~5-6 aly runs or ~1 full clear
Probably choose the aly runs since I still want the mount either way
I've got 2 legendaries - Shadowmourne which I got during Icc progression and Thunderfury which I finally managed to get at the dusk of Cataclysm (rng never favored me).
Had been farming Molten Core weekly for about 9 months on my main (paladin), decided to run it with my newly dinged 90 shaman alt with a friend...and the Eye drops. Thinking I'll never see it drop again, I run it just after on my paladin, and it drops again.
Also have a Thunderfury and the MoP cloaks, and working on Shadowmourne and Dragonwrath.
People are still farming to try and get them despite the numerous people now having them back in the day they were the most annoying and one of the hardest legendarys to get. (Still don't know why they went away from the "splitting" idea of glaives)
Thunder Fury, got Garr binding in like 3 runs but then it took me a couple of 100 more or so and all of a sudden the Garr binding drops again me raging but Barron dropped the other part
Glaives took ages got both of them in 2 weeks afther I transfered + 1 Glaive and Legendary bow in one evening
But the one I am most found off is Shadowmourne had the best time DPSing with that weapon ^^
The same is true for the Eye of Sulfuras.
Apart from the "guaranteed" Legendaries which you eventually will get after a while, I don't know why you would consider the glaives to be the most annoying.
Even back when they were actual content, they weren't harder to obtain than the previous ones. The drop rates weren't even lower.
Just started farming up the Shards for Shadowmourne. I had a hard time recruiting anyone for ICC25man as no one is interested unless its an achievement run... (and god I know half of my realm is full of R-tards, so no thanks on doing that every week).
So I thought "stuff it, I will solo the damn Raid myself".
So I spent a good few hours learning on how to solo most fights (a couple are unsoloable, and had to bring in a mate with me on a couple of them) and downed all the bosses, in which I happily got myself 5 Shards. So now I'm soloing it as a Blood DK every week with the small help of my mate
So far I've completed three on my shaman: Sulfuras, Thunderfury, and Val'anyr. Sulfuras was my first, got the Eye on my third Rag kill way back in Wrath, worked to get the parts and finished it within a couple months. Thunderfury was my second, finished it a few months ago after finally getting the other binding to drop. Val'anyr was my longest in the making; I got my first fragments back in Wrath and didn't get around to finishing it until a couple months ago. Nobody ever organized Ulduar runs and I didn't want to try and lead when I didn't know some of the mechanics. Luckily, it's a lot easier to zerg things with fewer people now. Of course I also have the cloak, but that's probably not relevant to the discussion.
I'm on my final Dragonwrath phase, only 205 siphons to go and I'll have that finished. I also have the offhand Warglaive just for the hell of it, on the off-chance that shaman will get to wield swords someday. Might try to farm the main hand while I'm at it. Eventually I'll level a warrior and my rogue to get the remaining legendaries I can't wield; I'd like to get a "full" collection of legendaries on a warrior (Sulfuras, Thunderfury, Warglaives, Thori'dal, Shadowmourne), seems fitting to me.
Legendaries are fun to collect, definitely. My bank's full of epic weapons I've collected, and only a couple legendaries. Those little spots of orange make me feel proud of my accomplishments, even if I got them long after their relevance.
I have all the legendaries but the Warglaives / Shadowmourne / Fangs of the Father & obviously Atiesh..
My favourite legendaries are probably Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings, Warglaives of Azzinoth (lore-wise) & Thori'dal the Stars Fury (look-wise).

I just got the legendary cloak on my main, the first legendary I've gotten in my 7 years in WoW and it feels awesome. I might go for the older ones, I guess Dragonwraith and the mace from WotLK are the "best" ones, since I can do those on my Priest, while Thunderfury/Sulfuras would have to be on an alt.
Is it possible to solo your way to get the mace from WotLK? Not that dislike playing in group, but often the shards/quest items needed are restricted when you look for groups.
40 or so kills and my monk is a happy panda with both glaives, so now I have 2 chars with both glaives, and one on my mage , 2 TF, Thoridal still needs to drop for my hunter :<
My warrior got Sulfuras and Thunderfury, just cause i got both bindings and the eye on the same friggin run to MC Was totally crazy and i thought I owed it to myself to complete them.
