Interestingly enough, 4 ticks on a doff with 20% nominal proc rate will give a effective proc rate of 59% for said doff. If i had to guess though, I would say maybe it rolls once for each eligible subsystem, which would be 3 "ticks" for the doff. This would give an effective proc rate of 48.8%. Assuming any individual doff could only proc once for simplicity, this would give a 86.58% change of at least one proc occurring, with the following breakdown:

0 Procs: 13.42%
1 Proc: 38.38%
2 Procs: 36.58%
3 Procs: 11.62%
