There is an inherent randomness to this fight, but i've minimized it as much as possible. I tried all of the strats on offer here, but none of them worked well for me, so i made my own. I used the basis of one of the other strats, and tried to improve on it. The TD script is set to auto forfeit the match if you dont kill the Owl in 3 turns. It usually does, but not always, and i noticed that when it didn't, the failure rate on the match was 90+ percent. With this method, i've donr around 20 matches, only 2 failed to kill the Owl and auto forfeited, all the others won (though that is a small sample size and i might just have gotten lucky).

Also, Arcane Storm that the Owl uses is strong against Flying pets, so you'll probably need a level 5 or so leveling pet to survive it.

Medium XP
At least one of the pets for this strategy require the use of a specific breed.
This strategy has been built to be as fast as possible.
The strategy takes a while. Sit back, get yourself a warm drink and relax the scenery.
Not every strategy can be bullet proof. This is one of them. You might have to restart it, since there are some random elements that increase the risk of your pets failing. Don't blame them, please!
This strategy is using pets obtainable from the Wow Trading Card Game (TCG) or the auction house for potentially high sums of gold.
This strategy is using pets obtainable only from the WoW In-Game Shop for Battle.net Balance or real money.
Level 5+
You can use this strategy to carry a low level pet to give it experience.
Some instructions are more difficult to follow than others. That's exactly what you might find in this strategy!
TD Script
The strategy offers a TD script that can be used with the TD Script addon. You can copy the script by clicking on the button to the left of the pets.
At least one pet in the strategy cannot be obtained anymore. If you have it, congrats!

My mistake, i hadn't updated the level requirement (i'd written it in the description, but forgot to actually change it in the combat setup. Should be fixed now) :)
