I'll try it...
Any suggestions on how to beat the dungeons?

I've watched other people play Aether, and I'm happy to see all the innovations, but the dungeons themselves, while initially interesting, seem to miss the potential of the procedural nature of Minecraft itself. Here's hoping people build on procedural region building when trying to make interesting places like that; it already has a structure for regional weather patterns, I don't see why it can't have an isolated climate zone that's a ruin, or a dungeon, rather than a small, largely rote dungeon.

So mad... I found a beat a bronze dungeon and just as I was leaving the dungeon on my flying pig, a blue swet knocks me off the phyg and i fall too far to a cloud and die. I LOST ALL MY LOOT! That's almost a rage quit worthy offense.

EDIT:
As for ruins and dungeons not in the Aether Iltsuger, I think the adventure update will address those concerns...

Yeah, it's been a long time coming but I think 1.8 promises to be pretty big.

The Aether mod has been a long time coming and it doesn't disappoint. I worked the second bronze dungeon and recovered one of the items i lost and got the complete tales of lore collection and a valkyrie lance! I just wish it was easier to traverse the Aether than building land bridges from island to island. My first phyg is in overworld and my second was killed...

That's a common complaint, that it takes luck and a lot of time investment to get around in the Aether.

I imagine the first mod I'll load is the one that makes wildly different landforms, just because that's probably one of my most favorite things, just seeing weird new stuff.

Risugami has a cool mod that turns everything into dome encased biomes.

I think you need lots of Zanite Pickaxes to defeat a bronze dungeon....
Also.. best strategy to prevent falling to your death is to carry at least 2 parachutes

Took me 3 holystone pickaxes to beat the 2 bronze dungeons, there's a trick i've found.

After hitting the slider a couple times just walking around the room the slider drops to the ground and you can wedge the square between the slider and you and just wail on it.

Haven't seen any. I kinda put the Aether mod on hold, I can't do much in the world I started and not really wanting to start over... go to the nether and then get the stuff to get to the Aether again...

Oh GLI it's not THAT bad. Sometimes while you're mining you accidently breach a lava pocket above the diamond ore you just mined...
Sometimes you fall into the lava you've been trying to avoid...
Sometimes the Creeper sneaks up on you when you're mining...
