I know that and I also know that I'm more than the 3 levels above Esseles so won't get bugger all SP. What I'm getting at is what FP has a lot of dialogue options in? The character in question is level 20 so I'm above Esseles and Hammer station and just inside the bracket for Athiss. Neither Hammer nor Athiss have much in the way of dialogue.
If you're trying to just receive Social Points, your character level doesn't matter. You can run Esseles as many times as you want with a group and still be rewarded social points; you just won't be receiving the benefit of XP or worthwhile gear drops.
