Animation and Faction doesn't matter to me but I am wondering for those of you have had played both or know a lot about both classes which is the "better" story (More twists and a better Plot). Thanks

I liked the Warrior story more than the Knight, but that's mostly because the Knight story is terribly slow til Act 3 IMO.

Knight is sooooooooo slow til Act 3

Warrior actually keeps you entertained with choking/killing everyone. I think it had a underwhelming ending, though.

Both are good stories, but you have to choose:

Slow, but picks up and has rewarding ending.

Or

Good all around, but has somewhat weak ending.

They're both pretty good. The knight story has a major dramatic event played out in an extensive cut scene. I really enjoyed that. The warrior story spread out the dramatic build more consistently. I found the warrior climax slightly more interesting and satisfying. The warrior story was easily my favorite out of the 6 I've completed (I haven't done inquisitor yet and I'm still in chapter 1 for the trooper).

i actually liked the Act 1 knight better than warrior. Warrior act 1 felt slow to me until tatooine to me but warrior act 2 is better for sure i though act 3 warrior and knight were a tie imo they both were good.

I've played them both and Warrior is vastly preferable.

You will feel the boredom as a Jedi, even if you go dark side.

Let's say Obi-wan and Yoda were "wise old sages" who dispensed wisdom--that's basically what they do in the movies. They were also crotchety, misanthropic, a little angry, and unpredictable.

Now, take away the wisdom and basically take away any character traits. You have "Mace Windu" and "Qui-Gon Jinn," and the boring "monk" archetypes of the prequel trilogy. That's the Jedi characters in this, sadly. While KOTOR gave almost every Jedi character an edge (especially the protagonists,) they went the other way here. Bastila was an ice princess, and enticing, for classic story, love interest reasons--your female warrior Jedi companion is "spunky," here. That's all. Spunky.

You can kind of get into the story, or role-playing as a "good" Jedi, but you never, ever say anything wise. You never, ever reveal anything but a dull "zen," "good" outlook in your character interactions. And the character arc is "zen, good, dull"---->"zen, good, dull."

that's sounds like the yoda said something like :
faster but not more power.

wow, swtor is just so good at its class story, isn't it?

it is so pity that EA runs it at a bad end.
English is not my first language, still working on it.

Warrior had 3 very big surprises while knight had... 2. Warrior also had minor surprises in there. However, both are great classes and I suggest you make time for both-- they are quite rewarding

In general, Warrior has more twists and better plot. Knight is incredibly slow, especially during Act 1, and it finally only starts to pick up at Act 3.

Warrior however, has a strong Act 1 and Act 2. Act 3 is underwhelming compared to the others, but in my opinion, it picks up a bit on Corellia, and the ending makes up for it.
