Social Points - really lacking after Esseles

I'm using rough numbers, but Esseles has about 20 dialogue choices, so with a full group, you'll get around 100 pts (averaging 5 pts for every 4 conversations).

Athiss, Manadalorian Raiders and Cademimu have about 2 options per mission. For a whopping total of 9 pts. Makes it really hard to wear gear like the Pilots suits purchased with Fleet Commendations when you cant get to the required Social II.

Beyond re-running Esseles, Anyone have any suggestions on this? Questing in 4 player groups is a little like chaos and I've been doing most of them with a partner, getting *some* social points. Do the later Flashpoints have more dialogue options? Are there other ways to get social points that i'm unaware of?

Everything up to Mandalorian Raiders unfortunately seems bereft of conversation, and I haven't done anything beyond that. It's a shame that Bioware didn't follow through on BT and Essele's heels on this.

First legit complaint I've seen on these boards in a while. BT/Ess were awesome, great story and great social point return. The next 4 FPs are nothing more than lengthy heroic quests. Storyline practically non-existent. And as such no social points to be had. So sad. Not to mention boring.

Well good, i'm glad that I'm not the only one. Does anyone with higher level have a comment? Are you SOL for social points until later?

This is actually the best way I know of getting social points. I leveled with a partner to 50 twice in beta and both times we were both roughly 75-100 points short of social 7 when hitting 50. It has changed slightly since I hit social 6 in beta but it hasn't really changed that much from what I see.

Personally I like that there aren't a lot of conversations in the later flashpoints. I don't want to have a drawn out conversation with every boss before I kill him, I'm just killing him for loot and don't really need to hear his life story before I do so. Esseles and Black Talon have too much dialogue and not enough actual fighting imo. The rest of the flashpoints still have enough so you get what is going on but focus more on the combat rather than talking to someone every time you go around a corner and I like that a lot more but to each his own I guess.
