That doesn't answer my question though.
I believe it does! Becoming a Diplomat develops your speech skills to the point of being able to speak to everyone. Diplomats are unable to speak in any other primary or race language, except the Universal language.

To illustrate my point: If you, Sinrek, the Diplomat rogue troll, try talking to me, the Diplomat druid night elf, in your native language - I believe, Zandali, I would understand every word you say. This would be the case, even if you communicate in Zandali, with let's say a druid tauren, that's not a Diplomat. The reason being is that your words will automatically be translated in Universal language, as you are a Diplomat yourself.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in summary - Diplomats speak only in the Universal language, while non-Diplomats can choose what language they can speak in.

In conclusion, all of the language choices now go as follows:
Common for Humans;
Common and Darnassian for Night Elves;
Common and Dwarven for Dwarves;
Common and Gnomish for Gnomes;
Orcish for Orcs;
Orcish and Zandali for Trolls;
Orcish and Taur-ahe for Tauren;
Orcish and Gutterspeak for the Forsaken;
Universal for Human, Darnassian, Dwarven, Gnomish, Orc, Troll, Tauren and Forsaken Diplomats.

So that means that whenever I'd like to speak with only Night Elves for example in a group with orcs they will all understand Darnassian, including orcs right?

The clarification is that Diplomats cannot speak in any other language. If you try speaking Darnassian, while being a Diplomat, no Darnassian is going to come out, as you've signed the Diplomat contract. To answer your question - depends.

Yes - If you are a Diplomat, and everyone else in the group, including the Night Elves and the Orcs are Diplomats too, they would all understand what you said, no matter if you tried speaking in Common, Darnassian or Orcish, as you are a Diplomat and your replies are automatically translated to Universal.

No - If you are not a Diplomat, but you meet a group of Diplomats, including Night Elves and Orcs are Diplomats, and you try speaking in Darnassian or Common, then only the Night Elves would understand you


Maybe - If you are not a Diplomat, but you are in a group with a Night Elf Diplomat, and try speaking Darnassian, he would understand you, but if he tries speaking in Darnassian back to you, anyone can understand him - not only Night Elves.

Diplomats can't understand other languages other than their race languages. They can only speak in Universal, which is understood by everyone.

Bit of a hassle to explain it all. Sorry for the grammar.
