Travel Log

The Travel Log is a feature introduced in the 3.5.1 update of Plants vs. Zombies 2 and in 2.3.92 update of its Chinese counterpart. It tasks players with completing quests such as unlocking a certain plant or world, or defeating a number of Zombies (PvZ2). The player is then rewarded with piñatas or gems for completing these tasks. It also used a ranking system to give the player a rank before the 5.6.1 update, which was then scored in Game Center or Google Play under the name of "Travel Log's Plank Ranks."

Update history

  • 3.7.1: New repeatable quests have been introduced in order to give challenges to players that already completed all the primary quests. Those are completed by defeating X determined zombies and by beating levels on Endless Zones.
  • 4.0.1: The player can play a Piñata Party level featuring a premium plant to "test it out" for free. Once completed, the player will be awarded 10 points and a money bag (if one counts the bag awarded through clearing the level, alongside money from lawn mowers)
  • 4.5.1: The Travel Log could be accessed through the main menu.
  • 4.7.1: New repeatable quests have been added for the Frostbite Caves zombies. Also, the quests for completing the number of levels in Greatest Hits, La Brainsa Tarpits and Highway to the Danger Room have been added.
  • 5.3.1: The Travel Log's look has been changed, it now contains a list with check boxes on the left nailed to it. Though there is text present on the list, what it says is unclear as its present is in the form of squiggly lines.
  • 5.6.1: Rank system and primary quests are no longer available. However, repeatable quests now gives coins when completed, up to 3000 coins. Repeatable quests now have a time limit of 24 hours.
  • 5.7.1: Repeatable quests now gives piñatas that contain coins and seed packets that would help you level up your plant. They also have a time limit of 4 hours. However, for some reason, the repeatable quests in Jurassic Marsh would give you 5 Gems instead.
  • 5.8.1: Repeatable quests in Jurassic Marsh now give you piñatas. Premium Plant Quests also have the lawn redecorated for the Valenbrainz event.
  • 6.1.1: Repeatable quests are restricted to one at a time, but give you the same amount of packets as they would before this update. In addition, more Leveled Up Plant trying quests, Plant Epic Quests, a Severe World Level quest, and a gem quest were added to the Travel Log. These can be played every day or week.
  • 6.?.1: Quests no longer award pinatas, instead giving only gems.
  • 6.6.1: Quests are split into three categories - Daily, Event and World. "World" is where quests like "Obtain Primal Wall-nut" and "Defeat Dr. Zomboss" belong. The "Event" tab is for events such as Premium Plant Seed Packets quests. Oddly, Inzanity Epic Quests also appear here, despite seemingly being more appropriate for Daily.
  • 6.6.1: 'Defeat x y zombies!' quests were changed to 'Defeat 50 Basic x zombies!', and only gave 1 world pinata, which gave 10 seed packets for 1 plant in that world. These, strangely, appeared under the Event quest tab.

Repeatable quests

Each day a quest to defeat a predetermined amount of zombies will appear in the "Event" tab. These award a piñata from that world, which will give the player 10 seed packets for a plant in that world.

Epic Quests

Main article: Epic Quests

Introduced in the 4.6.1 update, the Epic Quests consist of a 6 or 8 level quest that offers an exclusive reward when completed, that can be either coins, seed packet (in huge amounts) or new plants, like Aloe and Electric Currant. These levels are modified versions of existing ones, and cannot be replayed once completed.

Premium Plant Quests

These are levels comparable to Piñata Parties that usually take place in the Player's House, but can be anywhere. They are available to play once a day and are usually Special Delivery levels, but can also be Locked and Loaded. They always feature at least one Premium Plant for use and used to give 10 points upon completion, but now just give a Money Bag.

Leveled-up Plant Quests

It is similar to the Premium Plant Quests, but it uses plants with high levels. After completing the level, it will give you a Piñata with the given seed packet is depending on the leveled-up plant used.

    • However, if the player has two profiles on the same device, one with all plants and level completed and unlocked while the other one has very few of either, switching to his or her profile with all levels unlocked and opening Travel Log will complete any quests previously uncompleted and will add to his or her rank.
      • This suggests that the player can actually increase his or her rank without any new quests or updates.
