The Purlovia has long been one of my favourite critters in Ark. I dub them the ground demons, and their brothers, the Thyla, Tree Demons.
However, there is a difference between the two that bugs me to this day; you can’t ride the Purlovia.
I think it’s digging in the ground for hide for ambush is fantastic, but to ride, would be a dream!
I think it’s be an amazing ability. Kind of like the Doed, being able to roll with it for protection, being able to go under ground for a few moments to hide from predators or to simply ambush people in PvP, but at your control!
While underground with the Purlovia, your oxygen would deplete the same as being under water, so players can use an oxygen mask / scuba to lengthen their time underground. Dismount would not be possible while under ground.
I’d be a fun and new addition to Ark and the Purlovia!
