Golem with a glass jaw?

On "The Sentry" (TWEE Director's Cut, hard mode), my Geralt was using a sword buffed with a Svarog rune stone (damage and attack +40%, precise hit +5%). The Sentry crumpled on the first strike, and I got the quest update.
So does a lucky Precise Hit kill the Sentry on one strike, or is something wrong with this picture?

I have a save from just before the fight, so I'll post the result.

I remember the first game in which i tried the Golem before i actually found out about the pylons and what they did . Anyway to make a very short story the Golem kicked my butt very good and very quick not as quick as the pylons but still very quick.

Wow! I've fought the golem with the sword before, but it's been a long, long fight. Killing it with one blow, that's just astonishing. And on HARD?
Yes, please do tell us what happens when you re-try!

4 replays, same conditions, got no critical hits, and it took an average of 235 blows to bring old Stoneface down.
If the calculation for critical hits is fair, then that gives a probability of about 3.5 x 10-10 that my original result was a genuine critical hit.

Once I tried to beat him with the bolt pillars and I succeded after being lightened twice or more, just like e-ahmet LOL :D

I've done it with the pillars several times, and the thing is, you have to be not just out of the triangle that the pillars create, but WELL out of the triangle. You have to stand fairly far back but still close enough to touch the damned thing. I didn't have trouble doing this in the original edition of the game, but once the EE came out, I got electrocuted until I learned to stand really far outside of the triangle instead of just barely outside.
Even with that, though, it's a LOT faster than killing the damned thing with the sword.
Thanks for your experiments, Guy! I'm impressed that you fought the golem FOUR TIMES for testing purposes, since that's such a long fight.

Thanks Guy for letting us know that you were lucky the 1st time

I felt sorry for Geralt after that (the Sentry delivers quite a pounding if he ever misses or doesn't back off quick after his "final attack" move), so I sent him over to Morenn the Dryad for a little R&R.

I like the way you think! *smile*
