Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, now that we've had our time to complain about the new 'dex, let's see what is right about the new codex.
To start, I'm in love with our fast attack. Spiders got better (and were already one of the best, if not the best, unit in the game); Swooping Hawks now give us a way to fight the monolith, and I'm considering Shining Spears even.
Everything I have told you, even this, is a lie.
I'm liking the Farseer.
All those upgrades basic, for a minimal cost. I say its definitely worth the points now.
Dire Avengers, they definately live up to their role as the main soldiers where guardians are militia. (Two bladestorms going off at once, so much fun...)
Fire prism's got better; technically become more expensive since they are best when used as a pair, but they definately got better with the option of two types of shots.
For all of the eldar though, I love that Yriel is in it. (Mainly because I have a pirate prince fleet for BFG that I have not used for a very long time.) My only gripe for him is the title given; I hate hearing people tell me I'm wrong and that he isn't the pirate prince of Iyandan just an autarch of Iyandan. [Last I remember the banished corsair admiral had not traveled down any of the aspect paths let alone a lot of them.]
Take my love, take my land, take me to where I cannot stand; I don't care I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.

GW is to gaming backstory what DC is to comic book continuity.
Hmm, I think I'll sig myself on that.
As for the OP:
Exarchs are useful again
Avatar can wrestle a Greater Demon again
Dire Avengers are great now
There is no longer a reason for the Dying Race to field two Guardian Hordes to be optimal.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
I like all the new Dex personally. The fluff, the rules, the whole lot, in perfect amounts.
I love the new Army List and Units sections (one with points, one with fluff).
Unit-wise, I love the Scorpions; all those attacks at Marine strength (depending on upgrades), with good saves. Agreed about the Farseer and Dire Avengers, and I also like the Autrach.

The Dire Avengers FINALLY being a worthwhile core of the army the way the fluff said they were.
Dark reapers have a 3+ save. They've always been far too delicate, now they're comparable to marines. It matches the fluff too since htey are said to wear "heavy" armour to help stabilize their weapons.
Kai Shin Craftworld (Biel Tan / Ulthwe) 5000 pts
Emperor's Children 2000 pts
that is all.
I really can't think of anything witty to say.
harlequins seem pretty bad ass to me and the vibrocannon has become a lot better since LoS is no longer required.
ah, and dragons now have S8, which is only reasonable if you ask me
and GW dug out the old-school avatar, with a ranged attack and invulnerable against heat (well, flamers and melter) weapons.
I'm loving not needing to take Gaurdian Jetbikes as Fast. Gaurdians needing to be 10 man and a gun platform is cool as well as being able to fleet of foot with the platform!
Generally.....I like it all, but the two points mentioned above is probably my favourite points.
