I had been wondering this for the whole game. How come the death knigth can't talk to reguler people? He can only directly talk to people that can directly hear his thoughts it seems. Like the necromancer,samual, etc. The other death Knight can talk to people why cant he?

IIRC a DK is a summoned creature, only under command of a witch. So, he can't talk. He obeys orders - normally only from his mistress. Why should he chat then?
Are you sure, the other DK (in Act 3?) is talking? And not the human? And the hostile DK's words are only telepathy your char can hear, cause he is soulforged to your own DK?

Okay. What about in act 1 in samul's chamber? They spoke before you killed them when samuel ordered them to fight.

Summoned under the demon's command? Therefore telepathy again?

Didnt the DK say in the into cutscene, that he though Sameul had stripped him of speach forever, but that he can telepathically talk to you??? He was tortured and ended up with no voice...

It might be that other DK's werent tortured by Sameul.

I think it sounds like he had his tongue ripped out.

Seeing as I have started BD about 8 gazillion times, I think I have this part memorized! Yes, in the cut scene the DK states he thought Samuel had stripped him of his speech forever (and right about now my hero is wishing he did - j/k LOL). But lo and behold, your character (the hero) can communicate with the DK telepathically. And he/she is the only character that can 'hear' him. (Other than the one who summoned him).

There might be another possibility => DK is fibbing and deceiving - and hero is too stupid to understand this inconsistency

Do you remember when in the academy you musted to do test on the first floor there was a DK and your HERO was thinking by himself "hmm i can hear this DK maybe thi is part of the test" what did he mean by it he could perfectly hear other DKs on his way

Hi Chechen, I vaguely remember one of the characters thinking or saying something like that but I can't answer your question with 100% accuracy. Maybe someone else on the board can give you some better info.
