Roll for all outgoing procs? Check, check. Data generated, start crunching the numbers and applying the output.

Maybe that makes it easier to see how HUGE defense is vs resistance. You make your defense roll you NEVER even have to go through all the other stuff. It just doesn't happen. If you Lose you defense roll, or even worse, Lose you defense, you can just skip to the critical damage bit. That's where you'll be.
Any idea what if any role defense plays in Sci/Eng boff abilities plays in critH? For example, w/a near zero target is EWP more likely or the same likelyhood to Crit compared to a target w/a higher defense rating?
