This is a list of all the [Legendary] (aka orange​) items in the game and generally where they come from or how to obtain them.

In World of Warcraft

Weapons

[Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros]

A two-handed mace. Not to be confused with the [Sulfuron Hammer]. The materials needed to create this item can all be found in the Molten Core, though they are very rare drops.

[Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]

A one-handed sword. Requires very rare item drops from Molten Core, lots of Elementium from Blackwing Lair, and then you are able to summon Thunderaan, an outdoor raid boss, who then drops the sword.

Encounter-limited weapons

[Andonisus, Reaper of Souls]

A conjured sword, Andonisus is dropped by Atiesh (Conjured Item, and No longer obtainable in the game), in the midst of the battle to purify the legendary staff Atiesh, at which point a player would wield it against the demon. It vanishes after 10 minutes, or if the wielder leaves Stratholme.

As the gates are now automatically opened on all new servers, this item is no longer obtainable.

Mists-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.
Icon-stub-22x22 The subject of this section has been removed from World of Warcraft.

In Mists of Pandaria players could follow a lengthy chain of quests offered by Wrathion which involved (among several other things) gathering items from the final two raids of the expansion. During the chain, players gained an epic cloak, which was eventually upgraded to legendary quality. The culmination of their efforts, which took a few months of raiding, allowed players to choose from one of six legendary cloaks:

The quests to attain these legendary cloaks were removed with the launch of Warlords of Draenor, so players who were unable to complete the quest chain will never have the opportunity to get any of these items.

In Warlords of Draenor

Warlords-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.
Icon-stub-22x22 The subject of this section has been removed from World of Warcraft.

In Warlords of Draenor, players could speak to Khadgar at level 98 to begin the newest legendary quest chain. After venturing into several heroic dungeons for items, players would receive an epic​ ring (item level 640). Players could continue to complete tasks for Khadgar, venturing into Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry. At various stages in the quest chain, Khadgar would upgrade the ring three more times (to item level 680, 690 and 715).

Quest items

Players continued to venture into Draenor raids as part of the quest chain, collecting quest items and completing tasks for Khadgar until their ring was eventually upgraded to legendary quality.

Legendary ring

Five legendary​ (item level 735) rings were released with Patch 6.2. These rings could be further upgraded to a maximum item level of 795 through legendary raid drop items.

The quests to attain these legendary ringswere removed with the launch of World of Warcraft: Legion, so players who were unable to complete the quest chain will never have the opportunity to get any of these items.
