Trying to get Social Points

So I just ran Athiss (republic side) and got a grand total of 2 social points. At that rate I need to run it another 279 times to get to Social 2. I thought Flashpoints where the best way to gain social points? If so, which is the best FP to gain them from, please? If FP are not, which is the best way to get them, please?

Social points are based on the conversations and who gets the higher roll in the conversation usually gets the higher number of social points. The best FP (republic side) to run for social points is the Essles and I would recommend a group of 4 as you get more social points that way.

Also try grouping on heroics and just normal quests. I have a friend that is almost at social 2 and she is now just getting to balmorra, though her and her friend constantly group when they are playing.

Don't forget that after some FP's you have to return to the station and call one of the masters, that convo gives most of the social pts for many FP's.

Esseles and Black Talon are by far the best to gain social points

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.

The Essles (for republic) or Black Talon (for empire) like I said is the best fp for social points no matter the level.

I read it was changed in 1.3 though. If you're 3 levels above you don't get them.

You get them no matter the level. I ran my level 42 Jedi Shadow through the other day and she got social points, just no xp but I was doing it for social points.
