It is often used unidentified, since the 60 Armor Class is by far the highest on any helm, although as it at the same time is the only Armor and Helm giving 20 to all Attributes when identified, simply to counteract the resistance penalty.
An identified Gotterdammerung will reduce All Resistances to 0% regardless of what other items are equipped; even counteracting the Constricting Ring. This is what ultimately makes this helm useless in levels spawned with Succubi or Mages, unless the player decides to make use of a stealth strategy consisting of equipping enough items with Light Radius reduction, to put it at -80%, and a great number of Scrolls of Infravision.
