Paradigm Pack[edit | edit source]

The Gandayaks is a Commando when tamed. An Early Peaker, it is incredibly cheap to train to its maximum level of 20, and is a powerful ally in the early stages of the game, although its stats flat-line once it passes level 10. It also possesses some useful abilities in its skillset, most notably Area Sweep and Armor Breaker. It also learns Strength: +16%, which can be infused into another monster once the player obtains a more powerful Commando.
