For totally, totally gear based reasons (I want social level 2 to buy orange armor for Jaesra, it's totally accidental that the said gear is a bikini outfit !) , I need to farm social points.

So, is doing heroic quests with a group a working option, or I should just stick to FP ? (Or stop bothering, and buy a key )

Meh, my core tactic is to come on lower plants and ask people for dungeons...

Run Black Talon / Esseles repeatedly. Get an organized group, spacebar through it, and go to town.

Do *not* try this with a random PUG, as some people will never have seen it and it's not fair to demand they "hurry up". Make a group specifically designed for such runs and run the normal , not HM version.

Repeatable lower level Heroics/flashpoints as far as I know - as long as the Heroic has some form of dialogue to choose from [typically dark/light choices]. The more people you have the faster you can zerg them.

Best way is to run low level players thru instances or Black Talon/Esseles. Basically, anyone thats lower level (where you can probably solo the instance) and can't find a group because there aren't enough players at that level looking for groups (I see this like crazy and tend to run them thru just for the sake of it - already at Social 2 - however there are Social 5 - if it keeps up I'll be qualified for those in no time).

^^This.^^

Gotta love a "social point" system that requires you to be social with NPC's in cutscenes, not the people in your group. lol

That's why I consider it a total joke.

3 totallys in one short statement hurts my brain.

Also your doing it wrong. I don't believe social points were really ever meant to be "grinded"

they are there for people who travel, level and participate in dialog in groups.

Kidnap 3 people and lock them in the basement with laptops while forcing them to grind FP's with you.....
