On Monster Category "Dragon"/"Dragonkin"/"Drakel", the weapon can Poison the monster. Dragons take a -20 penalty to their saves; drakels and dragonkin have no bonus nor penalty. If successful, then you poison the monster (10 rounds; Power Level = YourLevel*23/18 for dragons, or just YourLevel for anything else)
(See the entry on Poison for details.)
On Monster Category "Dragon", It deals 120% Void damage. Note that the monster's Void resistance is (usually) 200%, so it really does double damage.

Earth (whatever your default element is).
On anything else, 90% damage.
