Jedi Consular story is TERRRRRRRRRRRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a lvl 50 shadow, operative, powertech, scoundrel, juggernaut, sorceror, and assassin.

 

Best story was Operative, it was a lot of fun. James Bond style stuff.

2nd best was Sith Warrior and Knight.

3rd Scoundrel

 

Worst was Consular and Bounty Hunter.

 What was wrong with the Consular story?  Was it too slow, or did nothing epic happening? :o

So far, the Sith Inq isn't too bad.

Imp Agent is James Bondish and quite amusing.

Smuggler is too much Han Solo wannabe.

BH was ok.

Jedi is......ok.

Trooper is GI Joeish.

I'd say between knight and consular, the knight story is far better.  However,  I think most people don't like the jedi stories compared to the rest of the games stories because these two stories have been done over and over again in every single star wars game....Whereas how often do you get to play a star wars game from a smuggler, bounty hunter or imperial agent point of view or a view other than a jedi trying to save the galaxy?

Oh and it doesn't hurt that for whatever reason, the imperial side (story, characters, graphics, outfits, animations..etc) are all better done than the republic side.  I mean just look at the fleets for both sides, imperial side looks way more polished than republic side...pub side just looks and feels bland and dull.   This all disappoints me too because in every star wars game I've always been hardcore light side as I hate being a baddie...

 

So  to sum up differences in knight and consular in my opinion (and mostly from guardian and sage points of view....haven't finished my shadow or marauder yet)...

 

Knight

  • Better story
  • Better survival verse tough mobs especially bosses
  • Develops late in level (like 36+) as many key abilities are garbage until you can talent them in skill tree
  • Extreme long cooldowns on all skills (so pretty much priority rotation)
  • Slow Leveling unless focus/rage build, but then defense is soft in that spec.
  • Pretty reliant on heal  companion for tough fights
  • OP in PVP when there's more than 1 knight on a team (smashers or tanks)
  • Has better conversation options and multiple choices during the story
  • Has better looking animations and attacks
  • Restrictive build options due to most skill trees being tied to a stance (every since 2.0).
  • Annoying to gear up and have the option to switch specs at will...although tank with DPS gear isn't bad, but tank gear makes tanks much better in my opinion.
  • Good artifice crafting class so crystals, enhancements, offhand's are easy to keep up to date....besides, enhancements are not easily found throughout the game like armorings and mods are...i.e. vendors don't sell all the useful knight enhancements....you pretty much have to craft them yourself or buy them from other crafters.
Consular
  • Bland story with weak voice acting (especially female voice, it's terrible)
  • Develops well over the course of leveling...don't have to wait to later levels to be fully effective.
  • More diplomatic story options and focus on avoiding fights (many force persuasion options)
  • Very high damage output, single target and Aoe
  • Self healing, spammable force bubble, many crowd control abilities
  • If lightning spec, can have near infinite force resource (even better than a scoundrel)...heals are still costly though.
  • Can easily solo mobs 4 or 5 levels higher than yourself (due to crowd control abilities)
  • Versatile build options and freedom to create any kind of hybrid you like and still perform very well in PVE and PVP
  • Easy to gear up since it's pretty much Willpower and Power for every spec
  • Extremely good and useful in warzones in just about any map or any situation except carrying the huttball for too long LOL...your not forced into a single role like guarding or protecting individual players or teams...so you can pretty much freelance as a sage, though your limited as a shadow to a soloist
  • Extremely squishy, so can't take focus fire (that's why the crowd control is important).
  • Kinda boring turret style attacks/heals for 90% of all specs.
  • Pebble animation for Telekinetic throw simply sucks balls...BW could have done better really!!!
 
That's all I can think of off the top of my head...sure there is more I missed...but hopefully this is enough to give you what you need to decide what class to go with...
 
But I'm curious, why you only have 1 slot for another character?  if your sub, you get what? 22 slots for characters?   If you free to play or preferred, just buy character unlocks for about 150k or so credits off GTN (or use coin in cartel market)....then you can make a consular and a knight and decide which one you like better...

I have played every class to at least 30th or more and have a few 50s. I have to say my favorite class in combat and in FPs and Ops is the Vanguard Trooper - Ranged Tank (lev 55 on him).

Best story line is the Imperial Agent but I also have enjoyed the Sith Warrior story line quite a bit.

Jedi Consular story sucks.  Probably the worst in the gameThe best stories on each side are as follows (IMO):

Republic:   Knight >>>Smuggler>>>Trooper>>>Consular

Empire:  Imperial Agent>>>Bounty Hunter>>>Sith Warrior>>>Sith Sorcerer

On the Republic side, Knight and Smuggler are both good stories, with the Smuggler being more comedic than heroic.  Trooper story is meh, and Consular is awful.

On the Empire side, I listed them in the order I prefer, but all four stories are very good.  Really can't go wrong with any of them.

Sith warrior and imperial agent have the best stories in the empire side, but i would greatly recomend you to start with the Sith warrior.

Playing the Smuggler as a female adds a unique feel to the story. The voice acting is really good as well. I started out using a male character and it did feel very Han Soloish lol.  I created the female smuggler and I really enjoyed the story.
