Frankly they all suck...
Examples from the DE faq - no assault from a webway portal, no allies can use webway portal! What the hell - why can't eldar use a portal? And no assaulting? Man cos everyone maxed out on the portals before right? All the special combat gear is now pants as well!
Examples from Eldar faq - farseers are psyker mastery 1! Banshees (I don't need to say more), no assault vehicles etc.
Black templars - lost preffered enemy for rage, emperors champion can't be your warlord, so basically you can't ally with anyone as you have to take him plus one other BT HQ.
Dark Angels - Ezekiel psyker mastery 1!
You know what... These all suck big time and I haven't even got to some of the other faqs yet.
No profile for agoniser(?).
Curious: SM and BA chaplains' fearless / reroll hits bonus doeas not extend to allies, but DA chaplains' and Guard priest bonus does.
Also, BA FNP bubble is puropsefully errated to not affect allies, while DA fearless bubbles are errated to affect them.
I thought I was elitist. Then my wife said she's willing to enter 40k, but she wants a Squat army .
Flicking through them now and very disappointed. Sloppy, leaves contradictions and things unexplained.
Not quite the comprehensive errata we were hoping for
yeah this was botched, BIG time.
Flicker fields: you can pay for an upgrade you already get?
Remnants: A log whereupon a veteran attempts to piece an army together from scraps and trades
Danger! May contain Oingo Boingo
Epidemius is still a God to CSM nurgle armies thank Nurgle.
Invasion Beams more than makes up for that though The rule is ridiculously good. Every other transport in the game moves 6" and disembarks the troopers. Night Scythe moves 36" and disembarks the troopers, and they don't even scatter.
It appears that Mastery Level 3 is the sole domain of some SC's (Mephiston, Eldrad, Ahriman and Tigirius to name a few from a quick scan) and GK librarians. Even then, some SC's such as Njal are only level 2... Seems a bit odd that the bog standard GK is better than the greatest the Space Wolves can offer, but okay...
Also Techmarines can restore a hull point during the repair roll
But seriously, the Eldar FAQ is kind of wierd, what with references to Mastery level boosting Spirit Stones that don't exist and so on.
By literal interpretation of the FAQ the shadowseer's Veil of Tears should read:from mercury14: In other news, GW took the opportunity to nerf Harlequins, which already weren't good.
The Shadowseer is a psyker and always has the Veil of tears psychic power. The Shadowseer and all models in her unit have the Stealth and Shrouded special rules. Any enemy unit wishing to target the Shadowseer or the unit she is with must roll 2D6x2. This is their spotting distance in inches. (and so on and so forth about spotting range...)
just don't get it. why is that DA always sucks? Tigurius, Njal, Mephiston all are (at least) at mastery level 2 only Ezekiel is psychic mastery level 1. Who writes this FAQs anyway ?

All the 'nerfs' you are complaining about were inferred from the BRB anyway, the FAQs merely clarified wording. It is dissapointing that the FAQs were not more like the 8th edition ones which did rebalance some things, and annoying that the Nrcrosn got some buffs in theirs. But saying the FAQs suck is an overreaction. I play Eldar and Dark Eldar exclusively so I'm not exactly pleased, but let's keep some perspective.
In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only British.

Looking at all of the special characters that are stuck with power axes, I can't understand how GW thought this one through. All the penalties of a power fist, with no where near the same benefits? Even halved I value would have made more sense.
Eldar farseers got smacked in the face in terms of Mastery Level... but there was no errata to Runes of Warding.
