What story should I do next?

I've just finished my first story (SW) and I want to finish all of the stories. In which order shall I play them for the greatest amount of enjoyment? Should I get the SI and JC stories out of the way so I can enjoy the JK and IA stories or should I jump back and forth between (general consensus) good and bad in terms of quality?

I'd recommend changing imp-rep-imp-rep, especially if you level with sidequests, not wzs and fps. Doing the same side quests over and over will get boring, but that way it will get less boring.

I too recommend switching between factions for each play-through.

Having played all the stories, I think to avoid spoilers and gain the most amount of appreciation from crossovers you'd want to do it in this order (note: original poster of this thread don't click on these spoilers, these are more so other people can see my reasoning):

- Any Imperial character before Consular because of Balmorra

- Consular before Knight

- Knight before Warrior

- Warrior before Inquisitor

- Bounty Hunter before Trooper or Smuggler or JC

- Imperial Agent story should be last, since it references all the other class stories

- Alternatively you could do Act 1 of the Agent before Consular and then save Acts 2 and 3 of the Agent for the very last. This crossover from the Consular story was actually so in-depth and confusing that I couldn't really understand it until after I played the Agent

Overall, I recommend playing the Bounty Hunter as your first Imperial character, because of Corellia. The BH makes the biggest impact in the war (all the other classes are ) and if you choose one "hidden" outcome you get additional context on why the Empire eventually


which you do not get through any class stories, resulting in a "jarring" confusion for most players when they pick up the Ilum and Black Hole quests and are surprised that



and of course the story finale which I mentioned before, which would be spoiled if you played any Republic class other than Jedi Knight.
