The "speaks" flag denotes monsters with the ability to communicate. Only intelligent monsters can talk, and they may do so under certain circumstances:

  • When first sighting a character
  • During prolonged combat, at certain intervals
  • When using a spell or a special ability
  • When confused (mostly to utter gibberish!)

Most unique monsters can speak, including Gastronok, a giant slug who ate a wizard and became intelligent!
