The Purlovia (per-LOH-vee-uh) is one of the Creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved. Purlovia were added in v254.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

NoteHelena.png
Wild
Purlovia Maxima perfectly embodies the element of surprise. Though Nanictidopids such as Purlovia were once thought to be herbivores, I discovered that this creature is, in fact, a patient hunter of the most clever sort.
Domesticated
Though Purlovia is ill-suited to the life of a mount, its usefulness in staging an ambush or as a village guardian cannot be understated. With a tamed pack of Purlovia, one could assemble a literal minefield of deadly claws and teeth. However, any ambushes using Purlovia must be planned well in advance, as it will refuse to hibernate if it senses any threat nearby.
Known Information
After burrowing beneath the jungle floor, Purlovia enters a state of hibernation, and can go extended periods without any food. When some unfortunate creature eventually wanders by, Purlovia dramatically bursts forth from the ground, tearing into its prey with its large canines before the victim can react.
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Highly aggressive will attack if able and can dismount you from your land dinosaur or bird.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Resembling something akin to a giant weasel, Purlovia is actually a type of mammal-like reptile known as a Therocephalian. Although its fossil counterpart was herbivorous, the ARK's Purlovia is a vicious ambush carnivore. It has long front claws meant for digging out the burrows it uses to stage surprise attacks while its saber-like canines act as death dealers to its preferred prey - small to mid-sized ground herbivores like dodos, Lystrosaurus, and humans.




Color Scheme and Regions

This section displays the Purlovia's natural colors and regions. For demonstration, the regions below are colored red over an albino Purlovia. The colored squares shown underneath each region's description are the colors that the Purlovia will randomly spawn with to provide an overall range of its natural color scheme. Hover your cursor over a color to display its name and ID.

Server admins can use this region information in the Console Command "cheat SetTargetDinoColor <ColorRegion> <ColorID>".
For example, "cheat SetTargetDinoColor 0 6" would color the Purlovia's "body" magenta.

Wild Stats Level-up

Type in values of a wild creature to see on which stats it's emphasized. Green values on a high-level creature are very good for breeding. If you have already tamed your creature you can try to recover the breeding-stats with an external tool.[1]

Purlovia
The stat-calculator does not work in the mobile-view, see here for alternatives: Apps

Note that after the creature is tamed it gets bonuses on some stats depending on the taming effectiveness. This makes it hard to retrieve the levels on a tamed creature, so this tool is only for wild ones, but gives a first impression, how well the stats are distributed.

Combat[edit | edit source]

This section describes how to fight against the Purlovia.

General[edit | edit source]

Purlovia themselves are not particularly powerful, being maybe a little more powerful than a lone Sabertooth. What makes them extremely dangerous is their single use surprise attack that stuns you for a quite long time. Best way to avoid them altogether is stay on a medium to large carnivores, as they will not aggro at all and can quickly dispatch them if you do get attacked.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

If you do get attacked, pray that you will survive throughout the stun duration, and either retreat or fight back with recommended weaponry. Once you can fight back, Purlovia is not a tough enemy.

Weaponry[edit | edit source]

Being very fast and its attacks having almost phenomenal knock back, it's good to bring powerful short-mid range weapons such as shotgun or weapon with quick reload or fire rate such as Assault Rifle. A shield is quite helpful if you can afford it, or a good land mount.

Dangers[edit | edit source]

The Purlovia is very fast, so even if it isn't hiding, it will be near you in no time and attacks rapidly. If you can imagine a furry wood chipper flying at your face, you understand the danger you are really in.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

It can't fly... well at least far... so at least we have that going for us...

KO Strategy[edit | edit source]

Try running in zig-zag, as he is quite fast in attacking, then if timed right, he might miss you, possible to K.O if on higher grounds like rocks with ranged weapon.

Utility[edit | edit source]

Roles[edit | edit source]

Land Mine: Due to its ability to burrow and surprise attack, it be be useful for defending your property. Players that don't belong to the tribe it belongs to also can't see it when it's burrowed, making it even more effective as a ambush dino.

Hidden Vault: The Purlovia can't be seen by players that don't belong to the tribe it belongs to, making it incredibly useful for hiding items. The only way to actually kill a hidden Purlovia is to fire in the spot it's hiding with a rocket launcher, making it a valuable dino for hiding large amounts of items if you pump enough weight into it.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Purlovia, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • Dino Dossier was revealed on May 10, 2016, on Steam.[2]
  • The real Purlovia was a type of herbivorous Therocephalian from Russia. This makes it the third creature to have a dietary change in the dossier, with the first being Arthropleura, and the second being Moschops.
  • The skull that is seen in the dossier of Purlovia actually belongs to Bauria, which comes from a different family of therocephalians than Purlovia.
