In pnp, certain weapons did multiple types of damage - the morningstar is the one that comes immediately to mind. It did pierce and bludgeoning damage, and was my personal favorite as a cleric.

Do any of the weapons in DDO do multiple damage types? I know that many monsters are resistant to one or more damage types (skeletons, zombies, etc).

Not like that (Pierce, Bludgeon). Transmuting weapons used to, but they got changed to Metalline, so now they just bypass metal-based resistances (silver, adamantine, cold iron, etc.).

There are plenty of "extra d6" damage types, though. Acid of Pure Good, for instance, will do an extra d6 of acid damage and an extra d6 of good damage. Sometimes you have to be careful with these - don't use your flaming adamantine weapon on iron golems, or your shocking burst on oozes for instance ;)
