The Gotterdammerung Helm from Diablo I is a popular item with some builds and exceptionally useful for melee fighters on levels without Witches or Mages.

It is often used unidentified, since the 60 Armor Class is by far the highest on any helm at the same time as it is the only Armor and Helm giving 20 to all Attributes when identified.

An identified Gotterdammerung will reduce All Resistances to 0% regardless of what other items are equipped; even counteracting the Constricting Ring. This is what makes this helm ultimately useless in levels facing Succubi or Mages, unless the player decides to use a stealth strategy consisting of equipping enough items with minus Light Radius to put it at -80%, and a great number of Scrolls of Infravision.



Great Helm

Trivia Edit

The name is German, and means "Twilight of the gods". One of Wagner's best known operas used this title, which is a translation of "Ragnarok," the Norse religious version of Armageddon.

The helm is often referred to by Diablo I players as "Goddamnitsdark", in humorous reference to the extreme light reduction it mandates.
