The fake-talk trick is used to kill an NPC with blue circle and not having it react (too soon) as hostile.
First, you need two or more in a party. You place everyone in the right position (fighters right next to the NPC, mages ready to cast spells at a distance). Then you pick one guy and initiate a dialog with the NPC, and pause the game. Direct all the others to attack the NPC. Unpause the game.
The monster will be expecting a chat from you, but it will never come, so it will stay neutral while you can hack away (tho not for too long).

You can make best use of this if you repeatedly pause, click using the talk cursor, and force attack every five seconds or so. It is very cheesy, but it allows you to get by a lot of tough combats without getting a point of damage.
