    Both are assigned a point value of 3, but I am wondering which piece you value more, the knight or bishop?

    Depends on how open the board is. But I usually prefer the bishop, especially the bishop pair. But sometimes an outpost knight can be really good, also when the knights work together.

    I guess every piece has its own value (i don't refer the the points) but if u start understanding the game better u would know a knight can be used better. Simply because no other piece can move in directions which it can move.

    A bishop's move can be done by a Queen (deep diagonal moves) but Knight can't be replaced

    I pretty much treat knights like glorified pawns. Bishops, rooks, and the queen play the game, knights just exist to be sacrificed somewhere.
