Fast way to get Dark Side Points.

Black Talon is the first flashpoint for the Empire classes. When you finish it you can get 200 dark side points. When you will get decent level you could solo it and do it fast, mobs are like level 10?. For example if you are level 30 you should be able to finish this flashpoint in around 8 minutes or so(maybe faster, doesn't really matter). So playing this for an hour would grand you 1500 dark side points for sure, prolly even more. If I'm correct for killing the Capitan you gain 100 dark side, and for killing that Republic Diplomat another 100.

Yep you can also send your companion on diplomacy run for dark side points, using the crew skill.

Yeah but first level missions give so little points like 5-7.

To my knowledge, once you've done a Alignment choice, doing it over again gains nothing. At least, that's how it was in Beta.

I do this on my Guardian in Esseles, working on finishing off Light Side V. I get 200 LS points and it takes me 16 minutes from fart to flush, though I just read that some do speeder runs? I never tried to mount up so if that's possible I could shave the time down.

I compared smashing Hammer Station to Esseles and I get 100 LS points for roughly 10 minutes of invested time. So Esseles seems to be the fastest still. I'm 550 points from LS V, so I've got basically another hour of Esseles to do, when I get around to it. I've just been doing it once a day because it's pretty boring.

You get the alignment points at the end of the run as you complete the quest you're given on entry. You can repeat the flashpoint to farm it for LS/DS points as much as you wish, and you'll get them each time so long as you take it all the way to the end.
