Legendary Weapons - Most fun/rewarding to craft?

So far, I've done Sunrise, Twilight, Eternity, Kudzu, Bifrost, Nevermore, Aurora and Vision for legendaries. I've got enough mats for a couple more, so I'm trying to choose what to do next.

Although it can be very frustrating (looking at you Vision), the collections and crafting is what I find the most fun. I only regularly use about 4 of my legendaries. The rest were just for fun. I especially liked how Kudzu would afford you locations to garden Primordial Orchids and similar bonuses with other legendaries.

What legendaries have you had the most fun with collections, crafting, and rewards besides the final weapon itself?

    The Juggernaut. During the precursor-crafting, you obtain the Mystic Chromatic Ooze. It renders every skin/outfit in a metal-style and utilizes the colors and light-effects of the environment. It is a game-changer for Fashion Wars and even beats a couple of infusions in terms of stylishness. In addition, the Ooze affects underwear - not kidding. Once you have done the precursor-crafting, you can get unlimited Oozes from Hobbs. So you can give each of your characters an own Ooze. Same effect comes up whenever the legendary hammer is drawn. The Hammer keeps me motivated to play classes which use a hammer. As an explorer-type and Engineer player, I liked the story behind the collections. Collected most of the Doubloons from doing tons of Jumping Puzzles, which I really enjoyed.

    Thanks for your detailed thoughts. I love the collections, so this sounds quite fun. And ooze-filled underwear, who wouldn't want that ?! haha. I'm not as big of a fan of JPs as you, but with map masteries, other collections, or just for the achievement I've done a done and have most of the Doubloons. I'll give it a look.

    What would be your runner up? I plan to do two legs

    This was the most fun for me (apart from what happens to the parent lions and then their offspring). It has a collection method, a proper story, and the final weapon is gorgeous. I did it because a person in WvW was using it.

    Edit: helps if I link what on earth I am talking about: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Chuka_and_Champawat

    As @Hesione.9412 pointed out, Chuka and Champawat is definitely on my to do list as well. The story is awesome. Since Renegade can use Shortbow, it is more useful than before. The draw effect is amazing, you spend a lot of time doing just that over and over. It also grants access to three optional cute tiger cubs (Nola, Brill and Halkor), which hang on your back.

    I used to run around with one of them on my back. I had a person ask about which backpiece skin I was using. ;)

    Chuka Champawat was the best journey quest for me by a long way

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    +1 for Chuka and Champawat being an awesome collection (my favourite). Astralaria for me was second.

    I wonder if we will ever get such collections again ... Might be foolish to hope they do this for all of the gen 3s / LWS4+5 legendaries.
