The Gajalaka's tracking questline begins by acquiring Cultural Exchange: Gajalaka Linguistics. This is a two-part Critical Bounty given to hunters by the Lynian Researcher.
It is important to note that this Critical Bounty will only appear when the following Grimalkyne tribes have been tracked and befriended:
Gajalaka Doodles are scattered across the following regions in High and Master Ranks:
Gajalaka Doodles will only appear in these regions if the hunter has Cultural Exchange: Gajalaka Linguistics.
Once 10 Gajalaka Doodles have been sampled, Head back to Astera and talk to the Lynian Researcher near the research center to receive the final phase of the Cultural Exchange: Gajalaka Linguistics.
Hunters will be tasked to sneak into the Gajalaka's Hideout in Elder's Recess at night to establish communications between them and the Lynian Researcher.
If this is done correctly, hunters will be rewarded with the Meowlotov Cocktail Palico Gadget and unlock the Gastodon Tailraider Monster.
