Does the damage from the Warlocks class feature Warlock's Curse get the Psychic?

... we've just had a combat and the monsters have Vulnerability Psychic

No [DDI]

The warlock's curse damage is untyped ... like the extra damage for most other strikers

@TheJug I'm fast, but I have to grab compendium links from my phone so not always good quotes :P – wax eagle Mar 8 '12 at 16:27

No, unless you use mindbite scorn

If you're a sorcerer-king warlock with the feat mindbite scorn, you get:

Your Warlock’s Curse extra damage increases by 1d6, and this additional damage is psychic.

The Warlock curse is a class feature that merely adds extra damage when you attack. As stated in the feature on page 131 of the PHB

A cursed enemy is more vulnerable to your attacks. 
If you damage a cursed enemy, you deal extra damage.

There is no type to it, it's just extra damage.

So it increases the damage of the source that triggers it, and thus the extra damage is of the same type, right? – El Suscriptor Justiciero May 20 '15 at 12:48
