Godly = best or close to best possible item for a certain requirement; item with very good mods; very powerful; the end all of a certain item class.
Examples: Harlequin Crest is a "godly" helm for casters, because it gives +2 to all skills, over 100 life and mana at higher character levels, 10% Damage Reduction and 50% Magic Find.
In many cases, this is the absolute best helm for casters. The only things that can usually compete with it are rare circlets with +skills, Faster Cast Rate, life, mana, and resists. Such a circlet would also be "godly". You simply cannot have anything better than that for a caster.
