    Special damage-type weapons

    The type of weapons I'm talking about are ones such as the polearm Bourdonasse. Usually polearms are piercing damage, but this particular weapon deals blunt damage.
    What other weapons are there that have different damage type than their class usually has? In particular I was wondering whether there were any blunt damage swords, axes or arrows.

    i dunno about the weapons you requested but i've heard that the Vampire Claws are slashing.

    Edit: thanks draxyl for the correction i knew it was either slashing or piercing i just picked one and hoped i was right :X

    Theres a level 70 SAM/NIN GKtana that's blunt. I believe katars are piercing and claws are slashing (not sure.) Rapiers are piercing not slashing.

    Vampiric claws are slashing, not piercing. This was posted above as well, just seconding it.

    No, slashing is normal on crabs.

    Doesn't seem to have all info though.

    I believe hounds are weak to slashing.
    Ghosts are strong to all physical dmg till you cast banish on them.

    Yes, you can see this on Temperence. He goes into "piercing" mode and you can do dmg with Joyouse but when you use WS it does 0.

    WSes are all set damage type, independent of what weapon you're using.

    All Hand-to-Hand weapons (even the spiky ones like Avengers) are Blunt damage with the exception of Vampiric Claws, which are Slashing.

    After doing merit parties in Caedarva Mire for the past week or so, I've concluded that Jnun (Doomed type mobs) are weak to Slashing Can pretty much pull off a 1000+ Rampage every time with Berserk+Aggressor up.
