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.
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.
