Trade Mission to the Zainab is a quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Help Turedus Talanian discover what the members of the Zainab tribe needs, in order to improve relations with them. The reward, a one-pound Amulet of Levitating, is one of only two unique items that grant levitation in Morrowind, the other being the two-pound Travel-stained Pants given very late in the Main Quest ("The Path of the Incarnate").
- Speak to Turedus Talanian.
- Travel to the Zainab Camp.
- Locate and speak to a female within the camp.
- Return to Talanian.
Locate and speak with Turedus Talanian in Tel Vos to be informed that he wants the Nerevarine to discover what the members of the Zainab tribe need, in order to form a trade relationship with them. Turedus will mark the Zainab camp on the map.
Speak with any of the females within the camp using the subject trade goods wanted (males will instead insist that "nothing is needed". Having a disposition of over 50 is required to do this. They will mention that the men of the tribe contract diseases while they are out hunting and herding. They are in need of "bottled magics" as their Wise Woman Sonnumu Zabamat is unable to brew them herself.
Report back to Turedus and talk about "work" to inform him of the tribe's need for Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions. He will give a 100 compensation for the task as well as an Amulet of Levitating, along with an increase in Reputation and local Disposition.
|1||In Tel Vos they say their new mage-lord Master Aryon has done a lot for Tel Vos, and they are very happy with him. But he is still having trouble with the nearby Zainab Ashland what goods the tribe would be interested in trading for. When I've determined what goods the tribe would be interested in, I'll report back to Turedus Talanian for my payment of 100 drakes.|

|3||The Zainab Ashlander trader Ashur-Dan said he could not think of any trade goods that the Zainab need. But he suggested I speak with the men and women of the tribe.|
|4||When I asked an Ashlander what trade goods the Zainab need, he said that the Zainab do not need the big buildings, furniture, fancy clothes and weapons of the settled peoples.|
|5||When I asked an Ashlander what trade goods the Zainab need, she mentioned one thing. Though the tribe's wise women were good healers, they could not make the bottled magics that cure common disease and blight disease, so the trader and all the Zainab had few of these things. Now I can report back to Turedus Talanian, and tell him that Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions would be valuable trade goods.|
|6||The Zainab Ashlander wise woman Sonummu Zabamat said that the tribe needs more Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions. The tribe's men travel long distances, hunting and herding, and when they catch diseases, they can't return to camp to be cured by the wise woman, but if they carry potions, the can cure themselves. Now I can report back to Turedus Talanian, and tell him that Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions would be valuable trade goods.|
|7||I reported to Turedus Talanian that Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions would be valuable trade goods for the Zainab Ashlanders. He paid me 100 drakes for my service. He said he'd tell Master Aryon how I'd handled the matter, and thought that he would be pleased.|
