Re: New Crawl players will never get to experience...

And who can forget these classics too?

* Ring of "I"m less hungry than I COULD be." (Sustenance?)
* Ring of "I'm a temporary Formicid." (Stasis)
* Amulet of "Middle Finger @ Orbs of Fire" (Resist Mutation)

Also didn't regeneration used to be a ring ego instead of an amulet? Or I may be mixing that up with something else.

Stasis was an amulet, regen was a ring which was converted to amulet after amulets' reworkal and also in order to discourage its swapping - before the current mechanism of regen only after being at full health was introduced.

1.) Killing monsters near some stairs.
2.) Carrying their corpses down to the floor below.
3.) Casting Twisted Resurrection on the corpses to make a bunch of little abominations merge together into a large abomination.

It's not necessary, but I like to stash everything useful near each other so that I can Ctrl-G to my waypoint and be able to actually peruse what I've collected instead of making 267 Ctrl-F queries.

The last level of the vaults had one silver rune in each of the four parts, this was a bug in a trunk version. I don't know the version number - I think it was two or three years ago.

Portable altars, sacrificing selected items to Nemelex to get a certain deck, collecting all weapons to sacrifice to Ely, traveling and exploring only manually, searching for secret doors and traps, writing notes manually about where you leave different items (because there is no stack search function), getting killed by traps, starving to death because you teleported into an area in Orc with no stairs, getting killed by trying to passwall too thick a wall, zapping wands to identify them, divinations spell school, darts

Edit to add some stuff:
Having a secondary set of Armor to do Slime (corrosion was permanent)
Pakellas supercharge ability on melee weapons ...that was awesome!
Making a Jiyva-proofed stash on a permanent Tele trap with stasis.
Magic Mapping+Control Teleport making Extended sooooo much easier.
