I know how easy it is to get side tracked on the fiddly details heh)

And if there isn't a RAW way of doing this, any ideas how to?
Buy the two attacks at the same level, Put "No Wounding" on the Corrosive Attack, so all it does is erode DR, and Follow up on the cutting attack, so it comes in after the Erosion.

If that doesn't do the job for you, you could link them, and add Custom (Cosmic, Cumulative Damage, +50%)
