If so, and what were you doing? Were you deliberate in your choice of leveling spots?

I haven't gotten one personally below 110.

Sub 110 I think your options are limited to:
Dungeon bosses
Rare elites on the first kill (when they have the silver dragon and you also get their fixed loot item)
Treasure chests out in the world (can personally confirm that the non-respawning chests are legendary-eligible, an alt got a Prydaz out of one)
Blingtron 6000

At 110 you add a few more to the list:
Raid bosses
Mythic chests, M+ weekly cache in your order hall
Emissary chests
Paragon chests
Weekly world bosses (and Nether Disruptor ones)

Respawning chest, on the Broken Shore at least can contain legendaries. I would assume other ones in Legion can also.
I watch Cops with no pants on.

I started getting them in WQ on my main. Now maybe it's bc she is a higher item level but I've gotten 3 for her and ONE for all of my other alts. Which I've been playing like crazy the last couple of weeks.

How, exactly are they being assigned to your character "in WQ"s?
Are you sure it's not just looted from a silver-dragon rare who happens to be a WQ target?

Yes it might have actually been an elite rare WQ. But let me stress this is ALL at max level. I have not gotten one via leveling. I think based on what I've read, I'm going to spend more time with my alts in the broken shore just don't all the WQ and turning in resources. Maybe run more LFRs because I don't really do anything but farming class hall campaigns and class mounts right now.

Out of curiosity what are the top most likely ways to get legendaries if you exclude raiding and mythics. So LFR being the highest thing you do.

I've heard emissary satchels, final dungeon bosses, elite rares, 100 broken shore supply turn in. .

Basically everything you do that can give you gear except random mob drops

And random mobs could drop legendaries in beta, I think, but people would just farm mobs endlessly.

A shaky remembrance of the past year for my main only:

7 from emissary chests
3 from raid bosses (2 of these were actually from LFR)
2 from world bosses
2 from the broken shore supplies reward satchel
2 from paragon chests
I don't spam M+, or any dungeons really, without a good reason (one for the weekly cache, four if it's dungeon week, otherwise I only go if I have a quest) so it's normal for me not to expect to have gotten one from there.

This doesn't conclusively mean that emissary chests are the best source (though they should offer very good odds taking into account their relative difficulty).
In my case there were are often stretches of time when the main legendary-eligible activity I did was the daily emissary (waiting for the next raid tier, M+ has to forge to be any good, M+ weekly chest cap hasn't been raised, world boss loot is trivial, etc.) and I just happened to get lucky during those spans.


Edit:
Totally forgot another source - using a relinquished token.
But that's never given me a slot-targeted legendary (though I've gotten quite close once, popped five of the things targeting the correct slot, then got a s***ty random legendary on the next paragon chest).
Considering I have 11 characters who pop 3 tokens every time the command center comes up (including one character who 100% doesn't do ANY legendary-granting activity aside from popping relinquisheds with zero legendaries attained), I think they're pretty crappy with regard to getting a legendary.

Blue post from Feb 17th 2017.
tl;dr version states that from legendary number three onwards, the luck/effort involved is exactly the same for every further legendary.
Highest chances to get your first legendary, still significantly improved for the second, but the original system where your chances would get worse and worse the more legendaries you had is gone.
We also now have spec-specific legendary droprates, tthough in light of the above, it doesn't have any impact whatsoever once you have two legendaries that function for any spec (like Prydaz/Sephuz for anyone, Norgannon's boots for cloth, Aggramar's boots for plate, Pillars pants for all warlocks, Mannoroth's bracers for all warriors, and so on).
