Template modifications:

By default the Moderating and Administrative user groups are allowed to reply. If you want to allow another user group, you will need to edit the Template modifications. In order to edit Template modifications, you need to enable Development mode.

Add the following code to your config.php file:

$config['development']['enabled'] = true;

Once you have enabled Development mode, edit the Template modification. Look for this code:

<xf:elseif is="{{$xf.visitor.isMemberOf([3,4])}}" />

add additional user group IDs after the 3,4. Be sure to separate each number with a comma. Do this for both Template modifications.

Note: be sure to remove development mode line in your config.php file once you finished editing your template modifications.
