Well, i didn't have to. I put a mark right in front of the battle with the white owl but I had the wrong cards so I fled and came back. When i did, i tried walking over to the dog man, and he thanked me from saving him and to meet him back at his cottage. I left the dungeon and went to his cottage and there he was. So in short terms, no you don't have to battle the white owl.
Has anyone figured out the potion combination for white owl tower i did what the book said and still had to fight the owl in there if anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it tyvm

There are two green potions to choose from. One is on a table and the other is on the windowsill. Grab the one on the windowsill and not the one on the table. Make sure your shape and color match what is on the recipe at the book. It tricked me the first couple of times through, because I thought I had them right, but when I used the bottle from the windowsill, it worked and I didn't have to fight that battle. Good luck!
