Am I missing something? Is there some hidden benefit or reason why anyone would use this item? Or is it errated in some way that I don't know of...

Because with Call Ancient One there is a rather visible benefit of waking the AO early... but with this one there is none. So why do it?

For those that don't remember the what the item say:
"Movement: Exhaust and spend 4 movement points to make a Will (-2) check. If you pass, discard Massa di Requiem per Shuggay, and the Ancient One immediately awakens. If you fail, nothing happens."

If the GOO waking is already a given, but Terror (with Hastur) or Clues (Yibb-Tstll) for example are currently in check, but might mess things up with the few Mythos cards remaining to wake the GOO.

Prevent another player going for Join the Winning Team from winning whistle devil ?

So basically, it's of no use whatsoever or have very, very limited use against only two [out of twentyfour!] GOO's...

Just wait till you see how sh1t some of the Exhibit Items are from Dark Pharaoh. Half-way through your idiotic ritual to stop monsters from going into a specific street space for 2 turns you'll be begging for the GOO to just wake up and end you.

Or maybe you're just geared up (full stats, everyone Blessed), zap the Tome to wake the GOO before you lose stats or Blessings.

As I understand it, you may play the Requiem to fight the GOO before it is 'fully baked'. IE. if you gain this Unique Item when he has only 3 doom tokens and your party is fairly well-equipped, you would stand a good chance of outright killing it. This item basically allows you a unique win condition.

You awake the GOO with the card.

When the GOO awakes, no matter how, fill its doom track to the full, as per the rulebook.
