    I figured out my entry for Divine Plea was wrong. It wasn't the DP buff that was providing threat, but the holy power. Each charge of holy power generates 0.5 threat unaffected by RF. I verified this using CS in both prot and ret specs. In each of those cases, a "phantom" 0.5 threat got attached to the damage.

    I also noticed that Consecration now applies an additional 12 threat (before RF) to each tick of damage.

    All class abilities which place a buff on friendly targets no longer generate any threat. This goes for raid-wide buffs like Mark of the Wild and Power Word: Fortitude, as well as triggered effects such as Blessed Resilience or Fingers of Frost, and single-target buffs like Dark Intent and Hysteria. The exception is buffs which directly cause healing or damage, such as Thorns or Renew. Abilities such as these still generate normal threat.
    Guess we're going to need to do more testing

    So did some testing:

    Buffs definitely do not generate threat. A possible side effect of this is that mana gains from Divine Plea and JotW no longer grant threat for their mana gains. While SoI still provides half threat for healing and no threat for mana, Judgement of Insight still provides 0.5x threat for the mana it generates (it is now the only source of mana "threat").

    Holy Power gains are still 0.5 threat if they come from CS or HotR. DP holy power gains generate no threat (probably due to the buffs not generating threat).
