Quest time limit: none
Reward: 288 EXP, 58 Gols, 2 Relationship with Cooper
Starting the quest
This quest is available after completing the Learning to Ride and Keeping Up With the Yakmels side quests. You'll find the quest giver in the stable next to the Wandering Y Ranch. You need to talk to Cooper several times, starting the dialogue over each time. Your patience will be rewarded with 3 Relationship Points. He will eventually give you the quest.
Cooper will ask you to collect 5 pieces of Oregano. You'll find plants on the ranch and in the stables - there are actually quite a few of them. It's enough to harvest three bushes to gather the required number of herbs.
Talk to Cooper
Once you have harvested the plants, return to Cooper and report that you have completed the task. The quest will be complete and you will receive your rewards.
