Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok, i don't know if this belongs here or not so here goes.
As a gift, I received 2 Eldar Grav tank Warhost sets. I havent assemlbed them yet. They are still in their boxes as I have NO clue what to give them since I no little of how to use Skimmers let alone Eldar skimmers.
What I recieved was
4 boxes of 10 Dire Avengers
4 wave serpents
That is about 3000 points from what I was told
Suggestions on what to do with these are welcome,
First off, congratz with that box! Some nice stuff in there.
As for your list.
The most popular get up for an Dire Exarch are twin shuri cats. So you could give them that. As to the Autarchs, deck them out as you like...
I'd like info on Flacons very much if you please.
Uhuh, Ok. Well Im probally going to use all 4 units of Avengers in 1500 point games and up. As well as at least one Falcon and whatever Wave serpents I can.
I used to love using falcons before 5th; this is not to say they are now worse, they just can't pull off as much uber killy/survivable stuff!
I deck mine out with the obligitory pulse laser along with a scatter laser and shuri cannon. This gives you 2 str8 and 7 str6 shots within 24inches, which rocks all infantry and light vehicles, and even gives you a chance against heavier vehicles.
As for upgrades, it depends on how much you want to spend. Bare-bones would be JUST spirit stones, as these will ensure that you can move even against most damaging results (unless your falcon becomes a flaming/immobile wreck....it doesn't help against that...).
I usually give it spirit stones, vectored engines (immobilised wont be the doom of your falcon) and holo-fields (singlehandedly the saving grace of our vehicles), but this comes out as quite costly (around 200 points per falcon)
Your other option is to invest in some fireprism turrets; the turret goes with the falcon chassis so this would enable you to mix n match as you see fit as long as you dont glue them on!
Hope this is helpful!

Wow thats alot of stuff.
If your going to run alot of DA squads you might want to get a couple of farseers doom is amazing when paired with bladestorming DAs.
You could put the DA squads into the wave serpents and do the eldar version of fish of fury. arm the wave serpents with eml or brightlances for anti tank and it would be playable but probably not the best over all.
I like falcons as elite transports if you get the upgrades it is very rare that it gets shot down before getting to where you wanted the troops to be dropped. Only draw back is the small number it can carry, the small group of fire dragons is my prefered unit to go in it. Never really used them as a gun platform the low bs makes me want to look other places for gun platforms.
6 falcons... hmm well you'll only be able to use 3 and as bitz are dead you might have trouble ordering the prism or serpent sprues/bitz. I would suggest selling the extras, making them into crashed vehicles, or trying to get ahold of other vehicle bits you need. Falcons themselves are pretty good tanks but IMO are just outdone by fire prisms. If you are taking falcons I would suggest making the fullest of their abilities, fly slow and send a hail of fire into your enemy and don't forget you have transport capacity. You can go up carrying a close range or close combat unit, drop them off and continue your work.

You could use all 6 for apoc games. I would keep them if I were you, but that's just because I don't like getting rid of things.
Have you thought about craftworlds? You could go Biel-tan and buld an all Aspect list on the DA base you have. Or go Ulthwe and use the DA's as black guardians.
