How did this get discovered? Like who realized you needed 540 defense to avoid crits?

People crunching numbers from raiding on the beta, generally. You keep raising your defense till you never see a crit. Like you can see what the hit cap is by stacking hit until you don't see any misses on the heroic target dummy.

It was found through testing that you needed to get your defense up to a point where the tooltip read that you had a 5.6% reduction in the chance to take a critical hit (bosses crit chance). So at level 70 that number was 490 and went up to 540 for level 80 and it would have gone up significantly if defense was still the way to go about it at 85.Also there was a way to get uncrittable with resilience, though it didn't offer anything but uncrittable unlike defense adding avoidance and block as well. It was possible to get to the 5.6% with resilience (460 resilience if my numbers are correct).
