    Hi, welcome to eldar

    your list has a large variety of stuff in it, some of which clearly demonstrates a knowledge of eldar (guardian squad) but some has holes, there is however a bigger issue - to use eldar well you need to have units complement each other, a "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts" thing, which I dont se in your list, I will go through and kick the individual stuff, but I think you need to consider how you want your army to play as a whole

    why? what is he going to do? all eldar stuff is expensive so be sure you have a use for it, the farseer shoudl complement other squads, but I dont see that he does
    Elites
    Striking Scorpions (5)
    Exarch w/ Biting Blade
    Shadowstrike
    ok the exarch needs stalker too to allow them to get to a target through cover and thus avoid getting shot up, however the real issue is the squad size, fine for combat patrol but in anything over 500 points you will encounter larger squads against whick you wil ltake a beating, therefore try and get a squad of 10
    Troops
    Dire Avengers (10)
    Exarch w/ twin SC
    Bladestorm
    Fine
    Dire Avengers (10)
    Exarch w/ twin SC
    Defend
    not fine, pretty much any DA squad should have blade storm, if you want a squad to take a charge then take defend as well and equip the exarch with shimmer shield and PW.
    by trimming your farseer you could get the exarch blade storm and drop defend
    Guardians (10)
    Starcannon
    Warlock w/ conceal
    Actually tend to prefer scatter laser in these nowerdays but ok as is
    Heavy Support
    Wraithlord
    Wriathsword
    Eldar ML
    Ideally needs EML and BL
    Dark Reapers (5)
    Exarch
    Give exarch tempest and rapid shot


    overall you are rather dependant on the wraithlord for anti tank, too much so IMHO, but it is marginal

    you can not liberate sufficeint points to fix the scorps and sort the DA, the DR and the WL without loosing a squad, would therefore suggest look at dropping the guardians to free up the points to do the fixes
    Everything you have been told is a lie!
