I guess my question is, has anyone actually tried to play the story this way? Like, start 8 characters simultaneously and try to follow this timeline as closely as possible? I think it'd be difficult to keep track.
Sorry for not seeing this earlier. I wasn't playing as much after the storylines changed so much with the family story. So, I was aloholicing with LOTRO the last couple of years haha.

Thanks for the kind words though. Obviously I have played it, although others may not as you have to play all 8 characters. It is difficult to keep track. I decided to play again this summer. As I have said before, the hardest part by far to me was Nar Shadaa. I just couldn't find many tie-ns and besides the geography hints, some stories are much quicker than others there it seems.

I am about to compare it to a similar thread on mmo-champion to see how close we are with our thoughts.

Exactly right.

Thatís how close the timing is.
No doubt that is why I tied it in with the second planet. I just think the Trooper finishes afterwards due to the clearing of the base on Coruscant at the end in my opinion. All finish very close in time.

Yup. I just have never tied it in with the Flashpoints. I probably should do that sometime.

otherwise, it's a possible order, although you can head-canon it a variety of ways.
I get your point as BH clearly delivers one of the death blows depending on which ending we say is canon there. I am going to play again and see why I said "battle rages on". The Inquisitor seemed to be later for me and helped establish Decimus in power.

Discovered this post a couple of weeks ago and have been racking my brain over it. Thank you so much for putting this all together it seems like the most cohesive story guide I've seen. It feels perfect but the more I think about it the more I'm worried that if I start recording using this there might be a mishap.

The largest one that comes to mind is what to do about Kaliyo being in the Knight Storyline? It's been a while since I've played so I don't know which act the conversation with Doc has her appearance. Because the conversation with Doc would need to happen before any of the Imperial Agent, and occur around the same time as the conversation with Skadge where he goes to kill Nem'ro.

But since all classes are present to see the war declaring at the end of Act 3 we lose the cut-off point.

Sorry to be a pain over this one detail.

Oh and just to add, for the prologues the starting order could go:

Agent
Hunter
Trooper
Smuggler
Knight
Consular
Warrior
Inquisitor

If you go by the distance of starting planet to the capital planet and information we get from the cutscenes. I like to pretend that the alien that gets caught in the updated Bounty Hunter intro is the same one that gets held up in the Agent's.

I'm doing some research about class story chronology. Are you interested in some posts?

Spoiler
So I assume that Directive 7 take place after class stories. I've got this line before story was completed.

Your presumption is correct. The "breadcrumb" droid for D7 is on Ilum, which in the normal flow happens between Chapter 3 (Belsavis to Corellia plus post-Corellia events like Darth T on Korriban) and Chapter 4 (Rise of the Hutt Cartel).

To go to Belsavis, you must go to Belsavis.
