    Both, at the same time. If it were Good OR Piercing, it'd be either one. But, AND means both. Yes, Rakshashas are tough like that.
    If there's a rule, there's someone out there trying to figure out how to get around it just to piss off his DM.

    Goes back to when the only thing that could kill them was a holy crossbow bolt.

    The trick is figuring out that they're Rakshasas. Shapeshifters and all.

    They used to be destroyed outright by a single blessed bolt. These days, they're slightly tougher(and by slightly, I mean like ten times. Every 2d8 being roughly worth 3d6 damage, before Strength. 7d8=31-35 HP before Con, and each arrow doing 1d6=3.5 damage before Strength.) Sure, you can kill them in a single bow full-attack, but it's still better than dying in one hit.
