      put roughly it ranks in damage due to weight and poise experiment with bkw and heavy weapons like your famous garnet try different weapon weight and poise damage weapons on heavily armored opponents the easier stunlock the density of magical energy (e.g crystal soul spear ,soul spear ,great heavy soul arrow and great soul arrow rank down in power but up in casting speed in tandem but fails only if the gathered energy is of different quality and property also tested on some leveled miracles due to both quality and the quantity of the energy gathered in the medium catalyst and matter really matters).

      in ds series any catalyst or talisman with high magical adjustment will have low casting speed.

      in ds world much as the real world more effective damaging and repairing in any world due to the indisputable concepts behind the any nature and its fields of study e.g electromagnetic properties of subatomic particles have an effect on itself and matter as a whole it even factors in ensuing time and space.

      the soul series developers and also berserk writers was inspired by these beautiful facts in these spectacular masterpieces by these pheromones of nature (like miura story weapon for berserk the dragon slayer which looks like your crypt sword from ds2 in a lot of aspects ).

      they rank for heavy armored and shielded humanoid and monstrious enemies due to poise damage as bkgs = bkga > bk halberd > bk sword.

      note that the halberd was changed in latter game serieses to have greater dexterity to strength damage scaling B TO E compared to ds1 E TO D but it and all black knight weapons will always have the greater strength to dexterity weapon requirements to be able to smack down those big demons.
