ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What is a purlovia used for? purlovia battling strategies in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Everyone talking about how they need to be ridable, actually read the dossiers and find out why they can't be ridden, especially this line "not suited to the life of a mount", also look at them, they have a far too slim build and skinny legs to be ridden, and for the in-game reason, firstly it would be kind-of OP to have a mount that can lie in wait invisibly for an enemy player or creature to walk over then stun them and do huge amounts of damage before they can fight back, secondly, they'd probably need some sort of special gear like a really long snorkel to stay under permanently with a rider, thirdly, the saddle would look ridiculous since you'd probably have to have a lot of straps and lie down on your stomach on its back. But still, one can't help but imagine the possibilities for say, surviving raids on your tribe's base by hiding underground or placing C4 in strategic positions around the underside of your enemies floors... But let's just say riding purlovias is better in mods.
Well so much I've seen all of your messages don't you think that this thing have arms? Like it's like one of those gaint chomping lizards and racoons and im pretty much sure that if I ever see one of those I would run or kill it, I dont know what it does when it sees me but I'm pretty sure that if you want to tame it you can't, im just saying it's just not possible to ride it because the developers don't want pepole to ride it. And all I'm just saying it's that MAYBE in the future we could ride this thing * grabs a dodo and yeets it on my roof and dances for no reason *
When me and my bestie were on a PVP server in mobile our bases kept getting raided, (we constantly lost everything) so my bestie looked up a way to help. Turns out prulovias are perfect secret safes. If you fill your prulovias inventory with all ur valuables then burry it then no one can get ur stuff because they can’t die underground. 😁👍 hope that helps!
Not too hard to knock out and tame
Pretty useful as a living land mine
Has good harvesting capacity and weight
Has extremely high knock back for a creature of its size
Not much use in singleplayer
Good damage per hit but really low attack speed resulting in extremely low dps.
No saddle and not being able to ride it means lower survivability and attack.
Low swim speed, altho that is shared by a lot of creatures
I love Purlovia even if I play single player mode and here is why:
I like to role play as an always ready to anything nomad hunter. Even if I have a fixed base, I like to be able to spend as much time as I want out in the wild without the need to go back home. To achieve this I carry with me many cryopods of all special saddle tames (like castoride, equus, hyaenodon, magmasaur), travel mounts for air, land and water, combat mounts, shoulder pets and special ability mounts for hunting. I also have many tools and different armor sets with me thanks to the help of Seven, my little sinomacrops/backpack. When I need to repair or craft gear I usually rest and work with my tames on my megachelon's shell in the middle of the ocean or on the top of a mountain on my quetzal.
To be ready for anything means sometimes I cannot risk to loose everything (like when I go to the pit of Dreen (Ragnarok) for alpha tuso hunting). Here is when my purlovia comes in handy, as I give everything I don't need to him and leave him burrowed in a safe spot knowing my gear is well defended!

These guys do have some use in pvp; they can be traps. Hide them in bushes (burying them underground in the bushes), setting them on aggressive, and out of nowhere, BOOM the intruder get pounced and killed depending on levels and all. But other than that they are rather useless. For pve they are essentially pit bulls. Vicious, nasty bite, and way too powerful. In my book they only have 2 uses so they kinda suck, like, you can’t even ride them!
