The knockback damage would never have hit.
Actually, knockback doesn't come after your strike. It's tied to the enemys attack rather than yours; knockback gets triggered whenever you receive a hit. So even if you die, you will still knock an enemy back.
Now, in this case, you should have gotten in a hit first , get hit by the enemy, die, and knock it back, killing it.
So the combat prediction is right. I just tested that with a slowed lv 1 monster and a halfdragon.
Did the monster die? If not, thats weird. I guess the knockback of the monster messed it up somehow... though they really shouldn't interfere with each other.
It's funny how bugs make you learn the game mechianics.
