You can use purloivas as base defense and hiding your good loot. They can dig underground and when on aggressive it can jump out and knock a enemy player off tame dazing them or something. If u put them on passive and give them good loot u can have them go underground to protect ur stuff.
Purlovias in current state ark are broken!
Recently found out Lovia’s don’t aggro on enemies when buried and set on aggressive. In fact, after some testing I found out they only come out if buried on passive and once buried set on neutral. Aggressive setting doesn’t work at all.
So I was taking some dire wolfs in the Arctic with a pterodon so I found won over 50 lvl so to me that was good enough so I was flying down to land when one of these suckers popped out the ground it freaked me out and a got stunned (my pterodon wasn’t a high lvl) both me and my bird were almost dead when the wolf I was taming woke up and fricken sacrificed itself for me R.I.P
The purlovia actually is very useful with taming creatures... at least on mobile, creatures will aggro on it while it’s underground, yet it will take no damage, serving as a “bait” for most aggressive creatures, set the purlovia on passive so you don’t attack the things you wish to tame. Simply build a big taming pen in the arctic, put the purlovia in the pen, make it dig, wait for the rexes, sabers, wolves, and even possible gigas to aggro on the badger dog, open the gates, close them, tranq out the creatures while they are distracted, and enjoy your new OP tames!!!
PRO TIP! When hunting for one of these make sure the creature u are riding on has its follow distance set to low so when u get knocked off you can get straight back on asap. If you do not have this setting enabled you will get knocked off and if your using a bird you will NOT be able to reach your bird when getting attacked usually leading to death.
In the north looking for a pure white wolf for an hour - finally found one went down on my argent to pick it up then bang I'm off my bird and the wolves are eating me and my best bird :( f***ing badger
Legit found a level 2 purlovia and had been jumpscared MULTIPLE TIMES knowing where it was trying to tame it so be careful and make sure when trying to tame the guys to stay on high ground when taming a low level and taming pen if 70+ levels
