Having removed the threat to Yngling Half-Troll's rats, the Nerevarine is given the task of completing some negotiations on behalf of Edryno Arethi. Arethi explains that House Hlaalu are in negotiations with the Ashlander's based at the Zainab Camp about trading ebony on an exclusive basis, hence the Nerevarine is tasked with concluding those negotiations.
The Zainab Camp can be found on the edge of the plains of the Grazelands region, southwest of the Telvanni town of Tel Vos. The Ashlanders will direct the Nerevarine to the Gulakhan (de-facto leader) of the camp, Ashibaal. Ashibaal will, however, require some convincing in order to complete the negotiation. This can be achieved by either telling him that Zainab "are strong enough to sell ebony", or by suggesting to him that if Hlaalu and Zainab both sell ebony, its value will drop.
