The Witcher

"In preparation for an all-night vigil at the side of a cursed man, or before a battle which is certain to be prolonged, a witcher mixes a dose of Tawny Owl potion to boost his endurance."

Tawny Owl significantly increases Endurance regeneration; it is particularly valued by witchers who often use Signs in combat.


The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

Journal entry

Tawny Owl speeds up the regeneration of Vigor. After consuming it, the witcher can parry monsters' blows and cast Signs more often. The potion is weaker than Lapwing, but generates no side effects. It can also be used to alleviate the side effects of Gadwall.
Potion moderately increases Toxicity when imbibed.
The potion is recommended for witchers who specialize in casting Signs and those who fight monsters that employ strong attacks which must be parried. Its low toxicity and virtual lack of side effects make it ideal for combining with other potions.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Tawny Owl is also a potion in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Geralt of Rivia begins his journey through White Orchard with three of these potions.
