Diplomacy: Effective way to go from completely Lightside to Darkside?

Hello, I've got a few inquiries here. I'm generally more of a lightside guy, and I've been really enjoying the LS decisions so far, but I REALLY love the look of the sith corruption, and for RP etc. reasons I'd really like to achieve that look.

So, When I'm 50, and I have progressively less LS/DS decisions to make, (32, figure I could start right now) would diplomacy be enough to fully swing me from LS to DS? does anyone know of any other effective ways to do this? Any input on the subject would be excellent! thanks!

Also if there's anyway for me to move some files around in the game client's folders to actually have the sith corruption appear on my character(only in my game of course, it would function as a skin only I would see, no one else would) let me know, doing some investigation, assuming it isn't against ToS.

One easy suggestion: a lot of the complexions in the character creator over the veiny look of darkside corruption, so you could just choose one of those.

so far no. You could just run continuous low level flashpoints and get more LS/DS points if you wanted to farm it faster than using Diplomacy.

But that is just at my currently level of 200. I don't get that much, I think 20 points or so per mission.

I can farm out Black Talon and get better results faster.

How much DS does a run through Black Talon reward? Is it the most efficient Low level FP to Farm?

There's two choices for a 100points each, so 200.

it wont be fast but with 4/5 companions running DS diplomacy non-stop you could definitely switch over.

BT runs net what... 200 points? If your companions can run 10 missions in that same time-frame or more, then Diplo is faster. Ideally, you could be doing both while carrying low level players through their first flashpoint.
