The traveler himself has a single quest, before the actually Prairie Pox quest line begins. Keep in mind that all of this information is subject to change at any time, as Zynga decides to roll this quest out to more and more players. That being said, this traveler requires you to fulfill three tasks in the game:
Harvest 10 Apple Trees
Have 3 Chicken Broth
Purchase one Bed of Flowers
The Chicken Broth is part of the Chicken collection, while the Bed of Flowers can be purchased from the store for 14,500 coins. There are rumors that you might be able to buy or place another kind of Flower Bed (ie: one that's cheaper) for this task to complete, but we can't confirm that at this time. Your rewards for helping the traveler feel more comfortable on your homestead are 500 coins, 1 Prescription, and 1 Glass Vial.
This then unlocks a series of four Prairie Pox quests that will see you battling the sickness head on. Meet us behind the break for a look at those missions.
Part I of IV of the Prairie Pox quests ask you to complete three tasks, that require you to build the new Doctor's Office in your town.
Visit 10 Neighbors
Have 10 Fire
Collect one Doctor's Office Bonus
For a complete look at what it takes to build the Doctor's Office, check out our guide. You can collect a bonus from the office once everyday. Fire, meanwhile, can be crafted inside the Covered Wagon for 5 Cloth and 7 Pieces of Wood each. Your rewards for completing this quest are 200 XP and 500 coins.
Part II of IV has you once again visiting your friends' homesteads, but hopefully you won't help spread the plague to their land.
Tend 20 Neighbor Crops
Collect 10 Glass Vials
Talk to Doc Auburn
Doc Auburn can be found working in your completed Doctor's Office - simply talk to him and you will finish this step. Meanwhile, remember the Glass Vial that you received for helping the traveler? You'll need to collect ten more of them by asking your friends to send them to you. You'll receive 300 XP and 50 Food for finishing this quest.
Part III of IV asks you to grow some of the game's newest plants, which has long been considered helpful in sickness remedies - Peppermint.
Tend 10 Peppermint Plants
Feed 25 Neighbor Chickens
Collect one Syringe
The Peppermint Plants can be purchased form the store and need watering after four hours. These tiny seedlings will then grow into full-grown Peppermint bushes if you care for them, just like trees. Check out our info on growing them right here. Meanwhile, the Syringe is part of the new Doctor's Office collection, and can be received at random by collecting the Daily Bonus from your Doctor's Office. Your rewards before the finale of this mission set are 500 XP and 5 Energy.
Finally, Part IV of IV sees you ending this mission series by finally curing the Pox Infection on your land.
Feed 10 Neighbor Cows
Collect 10 Prescriptions
Collect 10 Medicinal Elixirs
You'll need to ask your friends for help in collecting both the Prescriptions and the Elixirs. At this time, we believe that at lease the Prescriptions will be earned through general news feed posts, but it is likely that this will be the case for both items.
Those tasks completed, you'll receive 150 XP from simply finishing this mission, and you'll also apparently receive 1,000 XP for curing the plague on your land - not bad for what seems to be a fairly simple missions series, all things considered.
