There's a lot of talk about what's wrong with the Eldar so here's the opportunity to be optimistic. ;D

What do you most like about the Eldar?

The fact that they can make war gracefull and elegant...Well as elegant as a fusion gun to the face can be. Honestly I started them because of the same reasons most other people did, they are elves and they looked cool. What I grew to love is the mobility, and the diversity of the force.

To tell the truth, i have no idea.

In every game i play, i ALWAYS choose the exotic race. Eldar/Predator/Protoss/Nightelves etc etc.

I guess I love the gracefullness of how most of them fight in combat, and the sheer arrogance they have. Some dislike how all of the aspects are quite specalised, but I think its great and can make for some very characterful armies. Of course assuming the player hasn't gone for the fermented dairy option

fermented dairy?

Cheese is the typical term and all armies can be 'cheesed up.'

Yup, and eldar are no exception - however the balanced Eldar armies can be very characterful and are fun to play with, and even against sometimes!

I like the fact that they can be so customized, both in look and in play

Quite right, with so many specalised units you can create armies to fit specific opponenets, and create very characterful and fun armies on the field.

Especially using the biel-tan army list one can have more and different aspect squads to create such armies and be totally customised in a way that you want!

Back when I started 40k I was a total Noob. And I new absouletely nothing about the game. So, when I saw pictures of eldar with their exotic white and green colour scheme I new they were the ones for me.

So that's what I liked THEN. But NOW, I just love the way that the eldar can have almost any type of army. (Firepower, Speed, Specialist, CC. etc). I love eldar mobility, I love seers, I love wraithlords, And most of all I just love their fluff.
