"The odds of coincidentally rolling a special or critical dodge at the same
moment as a special or critical incoming attack are virtually
infinitesimal."

This is misleading. The odds of dodging a critical hit are the same as the
odds of getting a crit at any other time. If your crit is 4%, then the odds
of critically dodging are 1 in 25. Not infinitessimal, but also not likely.

The odds of any single exchange being a critical dodge of a critical hit
are infinitessimal. But once you have established that a critical hit has
occurred, you can wipe out the odds of the initial crit. The chance of
getting a crit are the same as if the attacker had fumbled, failed, normal,
or special hit.

Phil.
