The greatest strength of the Bing Sz Wang is its large added Cold damage. Although the cold duration is less effective in Nightmare and Hell difficulties, the added damage is still enough to subdue quite a few enemies, granted they are not immune to cold.
Along additional lines, the Bing Sz Wang gives a rather large increase to Strength, and considering the appropriate class, this helps with damage output.
One of the more arbitrary properties of the Bing Sz Wang is its reduction to requirements. The Required Strength and Dexterity of the Bing Sz Wang is actually comparably low compared to other high level unique swords, and its reduction of requirements can allow a character to use other items with high requirements early.
