The Night-Owl is a quest with an eponymous boss. Defeating this boss will unlock the Owl Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 4 gems.

The Night-Owl's HP (500) makes this a medium length quest and its strength multiplier (1.5) make this an easy quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in about two weeks.


The Tavern light is lit ‘til dawn
Until one eve the glow is gone!
How can we see for our all-nighters?
@Twitching cries, “I need some fighters!
See that Night-Owl, starry foe?
Fight with haste and do not slow!
We’ll drive its shadow from our door,
And make the night shine bright once more!"


Defeat the Night-Owl.

On Completion

Show/hide spoilers

The Night-Owl fades before the dawn,
But even so, you feel a yawn.
Perhaps it’s time to get some rest?
Then on your bed, you see a nest!
A Night-Owl knows it can be great
To finish work and stay up late,
But your new pets will softly peep
To tell you when it’s time to sleep.
