Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor and shields (but not tower shields). Additionally all wood elf highborn share the druids vows against metal armor and the related penalties for its use.

Dexterity Based: All of the abilities gained in this class that require a save have a DC of 10 + 1/2 HD + Dex mod. Caster Level is always equal to HD unless otherwise noted.

Bow arts of Athel Loren (Ex): All wood elves train from birth to use bows with deadly precision even in close quarters combat, highborn even more so than usual. Wood elf Highborn do not provoke attacks of opportunity for making bow attacks, nor do they take any penalty for firing into combat. Wood elf Highborn are treated as having the Point Blank shot and Precise shot feats for the purposes of prerequisites.

Spite Magic (Su): Spites are small magical beings, manifestations of a forests power and will. Wood elves have such a deep connection to their homelands that they are able to call and control small numbers of spites even while far from home. At the beginning of the day a Highborn must choose one spite from the following list, they gain the bonuses listed until they pick a new spite. At 10 HD a Highborn may call and control two spites a day. Activating any ability of a Spite is a standard action unless otherwise noted.

Woodland Stride (Ex): Starting at 2nd level, a Highborn may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at her normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. However, thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion still affect them.

Wood Elf Blade Mastery (Ex):
All Wood Elves may use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for attack and damage rolls.
 
Trackless Step (Ex): Starting at 3rd level, a Wood Elf Highborn leaves no trail in natural surroundings and cannot be tracked. She may choose to leave a trail if so desired.

Heirlooms of Athel Loren (Ex): At 3rd level a Wood Elf Highborn gains access to the armories of Athel Loren, here they may purchase any magic weapon or armor constructed of natural materials (not metal) at a 20% discount. They also gain access to the unique items from the list below.

No, its Spite. Never was sure why but that is what games workshop has and these are based off of their wood elves.

Spear of Twilight is just a +5 equivalent weapon (+3 w/ +2d6 extra damage).

Asyendi's Bane is going to kill you if you're not super accurate. Woe betide you if you accidentally make an attack that requires a natural 20 to hit, because that's -38 Con right there. If you hit on an 11, you're still taking an average of -2 Con per attack.

In the source material it causes instant death but I thought that was a bit much, any sugggestions on how to change it?

It is a lethal weapon in the source material too. In the source material it has a 1/3 chance of inflicting a wound each time you reroll and most characters only have 2 or 3 wounds. This is tempered by the fact you can only actually pull off one ranged attack per turn I suppose.

That being said, rerolls on all of your attacks are super awesome.

I should note that you cant reroll a reroll, it is only possible to lose 2 con per attack rather than a technically infinite ammount
