okay... i know from having conversatons.. but my server is small and findig people to do missions with is not easy. Furthermore, they only tend to group for the stage they need help and then vanish and you are left trying to explain that we shoudl also hand in together for points, but some have TOR still confused with WoW

anywya, them aside, i actuallly want social points. now is there a fast track way of getting tons of these? Like some sort of repeatable i can do that woul dload me with like 100+ or more? .. what happens ifyou reach 50 and still ahvne't maxed it out yet?

nevermind

my frustration is not with the system, it's with actually getting people to level with. frustratingly slow when there aren't enough around.
currently o VOss, -it was easy on Tython/Coruscant, you could team up wiht 4 people easily, but ppl don't seem to take it further than that sadly.

i shall jsut try harder.

Nothing happens at 50 if you haven't maxed them out. You can still earn them and continue gaining social levels through quests, FPs, etc. And yeah, it can be really frustrating. Are you in a guild that can run stuff with you so you can all get the Social Points?

Fast way to get social points is running esseles numerous times. As a higher level you can easily get a group that wants a boost for gear and social points and if you skip the stories (since most of us have seen them lots) you can get them pretty quick.
Oh, and also some light/dark side points to boot.

This, you can get 150-200 S.P.s from a full 4-man run and if all 50's can be done under 15mins per run.

I sit at the fleet and spam the first Flashpoint for each faction (Esseles/Black Talon) to farm social points. You can't count on heroic's to earn social points, because they don't really give any worthwhile amount even at the best of times.

You need a friend who would play with you and only with you and not skip ahead to lvl constantly with if your trying to farm them from normal world quests. If you don't have someone you can organize your lvling schedule you can't count on simply asking local players to party up. Sometimes they do accept but you just can't count on going through all the social ranks with that alone.

With high lvl players and spacebaring through the lvl 10 flashpoints you can get 150+ points in under 20 minutes. There just isn't any other method anywhere in the game that can compare to that rate, even lvling with a partner with world quests can't compare to the sheer speed.

Summary: Learn to love running the Esseles / Black talon to death.

A couple of tips

1. You will get more social points with more human players on the group, so try to get 4 humans on.

2. You will get more points if you agree on the answers. Besides choosing dark/light points, everything else can be agreed on.

3. You get points on the initial conversation and on turn in, so hang on for those.

I just say on general "I need the social points".. that way you get other players looking for the same and you can move along faster.
I don't know if this is a Sith thing, but at the beginning of every game conversation my first thought is "You are so dead"...

I wouldn't worry much Macetheace, since right now they're bugged and CSRs aren't responding to tickets.

At some point you'll simply stop collecting them for some unknown reason.

My wife and I have toons that we level together (29 now). I stopped collecting shy of Social III by 6 pts. An hour later, still shy by 6 pts.

I just completed an Esseles Flashpoint Speed Run with a group of 4 on Speeder bikes. We used space bar through every conversation and I selected option 1 for every prompt. From entering the Gate to landing back on The Republic Fleet it took 19 minutes. I gained 156 Social Points, 250 Light Side Points, and for whatever reason gained 60 Affection with my T7-01 Companion. I've seen up to 175 Social Points from this scenario before and maybe more depending on how many conversation choices you win the roll for.

I'm going to do a quick run of Hammer Station and see what the outcome is and i'll update when I'm finished...

I believe the same outcome is possible for the same style group on The Black Talon Flashpoint for Imperial players, please confirm.
