Default 2500 Point Eldar List

I favor a fast, aggressive, assault-heavy style so I took a lot of things that could run about, with some heavy bits to bring the high-strength hits I'd need against things with high toughness or AVs.

Eldar 2500 Points:

HQ -
Prince Yriel
Farseer w/Doom and Fortune, Runes of Warding, Spirit Stones

HQ Total: 300

Elites:
2x 10 Striking Scorpions, Exarch, Biting Blades, Shadowstrike
1x 10 Fire Dragons, Exarch w/Crack Shot, Firepike

Elites Cost: 579

Troops:
Wraithguard x10 w/Spiritseer, Singing Spear, & Enhance
3x 10 Dire Avengers, Exarch, PW/SS, Defend
Pathfinders x10

Troops Cost: 1122

Heavy Support:
2x Wraithlord: 1 Bright Lance/EML, 1 Wraithsword/Scatter Laser

Heavy Support Cost: 275

Fast Attack:
Shining Spears x5, Exarch, Star Lance, Skilled Rider

FA Cost: 212

It's a pretty good list but some parts are superfluous

I know Yriel is great, but in this list I would use Karandras, you can save 25 points on one of your scorpion squads because he confers the exarch powers.
Farseer w/Doom and Fortune, Runes of Warding, Spirit Stones
This is great but if you're planning on using him with the wraiths I would suggest Mind War to remove any squad leaders with powerfists

HQ Total: 300

Elites:
2x 10 Striking Scorpions, Exarch, Biting Blades, Shadowstrike
Great! I love scorpions and biting blades, great outflank units
1x 10 Fire Dragons, Exarch w/Crack Shot, Firepike
Ok, this unit is a bit overkill, you only really need five without a exarch, use the extra points saved to give them a waveserpent, being able to move 12'' and disembark and kill a tank is quite fun.

Elites Cost: 579

Troops:
Wraithguard x10 w/Spiritseer, Singing Spear, & Enhance
3x 10 Dire Avengers, Exarch, PW/SS, Defend
Pathfinders x10
no problems with these
Troops Cost: 1122

Heavy Support:
2x Wraithlord: 1 Bright Lance/EML, 1 Wraithsword/Scatter Laser
Hmm, the first wraithlord is good, however you could save some points on the second by removing the scatterlaser, your choice

Heavy Support Cost: 275

Fast Attack:
Shining Spears x5, Exarch, Star Lance, Skilled Rider

FA Cost: 212
It's the startings of a really good list, but as I've said many times with eldar it's all about personal preference
