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.
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!!!
You can use them as a hidden treasure chest. If you are a solo player this is very helpful, as long as you remember where they are. Also if someone knows where it is, they cant shoot it, and they have to waste nades or c4
