Just never seen a miss. Just the placate bit.

So there you go. I'm unsure of the mechanic they use. My guess is that they gain no benefit as they never actually seem to go through the 'to hit' roll part of the process that overflow comes from.
Yeah, the question comes more out of anecdotal observation of using PSW on someone after applying a TB and having it "feel" like it crits more often than w/o having a TB applied. I've done no tests though.
