My greatsword gets the piercing effect (bleeding STR bonus 2 rounds) when NH is activated. worked like that when I took the feat yesterday.

Same with 2 of my greatswords, but i had changed their appearance to that greatmaul look, changing them back to a sword, didn't fix the issue.
An no, they don't have any extra piercing damage on them.
A newly bought greatsword does the slashing effect.

My current greatsword has changed apparance twice, but that was before i got the feat. I have had the weapon before the feat got updated. I dont aasume the maul look has anything to do with the effect? Although I do have it in a lithe elven blade look.

Your leather armor doesnt change into chainmail, just because you change its apparance to chain either.

I will try and ask a dm for trade IG, see if that helps

Appearance has nothing to do with any of that, greatswords were set to slashing-piercing damage type, which uses the NH's bleed effect, I just changed them back to slashing only, that should fix the NH effect and correct their damage type as per lore/canon/RAW, too.

I might also make slashing-piercing weapons like halberds cycle between the bleed and whirlwind effect. Wouldn't that be nice?
