TF vs KD: Devastate Threat
Thunderfury vs King’s Defender in regards to Devastate
Devastate is calculated as the following…
(Weapon Damage / 2) + (35 * Number of Sunders) - Mitigation
The following accurate data reworked by Armstrong assumes the proc of TF does 300 damage = 300 threat with a 20% proc rate and 5 sunders.
And we find that Thunderfury does more threat than King’s Defender when using Devastate.

Which explains why it can keep up and ultimately out threat King's Defender.
Update: Thanks Armstrong for steering this away from theory and closer to something factual.
