Stupidly got into an unwinnable fight with an adder, then randomly quaffed un-ID'd potions - lig + might let me finish off the adder, cancellation let me move - then with my few, last, dying moves, scrambled over to an an un ID'd potion just lying there, and it was curing! (Should never have got into such a stupid situation in the first place, but sometimes crawl luck can save the day)

I was playing a shortblade guy of Gozag and was worried about how I was going to win the game, because I just couldn't put out any damage against enemies with AC. So, I bribe Zot, rush to the bottom, and I spawn in LoS of an orb of fire.

He then waves his bag of gold at me.

And then a second one waves his bag of gold at me.

Holy shit was that the easiest Zot 5 I've ever done.

You're doing one of the harder but generally more rewarding baileys, and you polymorph the warlord guarding the loot into something slow, walk right past it, and steal it all without any difficulty.

Getting a few good shops!

This seems like a very minor detail at first, and in the grand scheme of things, I suppose it is. But actually using most of the gold you find in the dungeon for at least the first half or so of the game is very, very satisfying to me. It's even better if the selection is good enough to warrant thinking about what to buy and in what order. Gold is too often a meaningless resource by the time one has cleared Orc, if it ever has any use at all.
