Moving Goal Posts
I should start by saying this anecdotal evidence based on my own Eldar army. I haven’t pored through the codex to work it unit by unit.

This is really no shock, every codex downgrades some of the points values and strength of older units. It’s the only way GW can make the new units bestter than the older ones, other than changing the stat lines to 11/10.
Below is my army list.
|Dire avengers x6|
|Shimmer shield power weapon|
|Dire avengers x5|
|Path finders x10|
In the 4th/5th Edition codex this totalled 1412 points. Having recently added the Rangers I was contemplating, either an Avatar or Wraith Lord to take me to 1500 points.
Using the 6th Edition codex this all weighs in at 1174 points, which is actually a 17% drop in points. It’s going to take me a bit more than than a Wraith Lord to hit 1500 points, something like a fully loaded Wraith Knight would do the trick. Now how did GW manage to find another way to make me buy a Wraith Knight?
