These guys give a crap-ton of meat/hide when killed, depending on if you’re using a pick or hatchet. Also, not that difficult to spot when buried (on mobile at least), especially in the winter area. Just look for a brown bump that doesn’t match the surrounding area.
Guys l, this is important! The best way to defend your base on a PVP world is to cover the nearby area on a bunch of these guys set to aggressive and dig! Trust me when I say now one can break a formation like that, trust me I know😟
P.S. if it feels like cheating just remember that lvl 2 Rex that killed your raptor lvl 85 three days back because it was on passive😔
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.
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!!!
