Berserk Strength is part of why like to have a very high AC. The to-hit bonus is often significant (sometimes +8% chance to hit) and when you are swinging only once or twice per attack, you really want to make sure you hit. Not sure berserk strength is worth it in the very early game, when it can drop you to negative AC, but once you get your AC into the thirties and fifties it becomes less of a concern. Get your AC to 100 or better, and the penalty is inconsequential
