The marids are susceptible to sleep, gravity and bind.
They move very slowly and are easy to pull.
It is simple and usually necessary that you pull two at one time and keep one slept or gravitied to beat this assault in time as the Marids are extremely long pulls.
Pull the marid you are fighting as close to the NPC as possible in order to keep a constant supply of darts.
The marids become immune to all effects and spells while the darts are taking place (roughly 2-3 seconds).
When using the tranquilizers, they will either have no effect or fall out.
If the dart "falls out" the Marid goes into a berserk state. During this time they will run at full speed and hit much harder(300+ on a BLM)
This only happens if the Marid is awake. Sleeping the Marid prior to using tranquilizers will prevent it from happening. -- Boogers on Hades
One person (probably a ninja) can hold the marid and damage it to about 75%. Around 75% start using the tranquilizer darts on the marid. Simply use them from your item menu. Once the marid has been tamed it will disappear.
Someone should be assigned to killing chigoes that the marids will summon. These have very low HP and are easy to kill. A good strategy is to get TP on the marid and use them on the chigoes that pop.
There are also a number of Mamool Ja throughout the map.
All eight of the Marids must either be killed or tamed to win this assault, if you successfully tame all eight marids you will earn full points. Killing a marid will lower the points.
This Assault was trio'd with some difficulty by BLM BLM THF. The BLMs should each nuke once to bring them down to 75% then proceed to throw darts along with the third member untill it disappears. I suggest pulling both marids in the rooms at once to the NPC due to time restraints.
Another strategy is to have two black mages nuking a marid to 50% then bind/sleep/gravity it while using darts.
This Assault can easily be trio'd with NIN RDM and any job for third. RDM will sleep pull, invisible, then run back to the NPC. NIN tank until 70% and lower and start using darts. while NIN and DD is fighting, RDM will start pulling again to save time.
This assault was easily soloed by 99 NIN/DNC in full 119 gear. Just kill the Marids and move on. I'm sure it can be soloed by most 99 jobs now. 1-20-15
At G-9/H-9 players can only go east, the ramp going up does not connect to allow players to go west in this tunnel.
There are two obvious shorts cuts. Pullers do not have to go up a ramp until the last two Marids. Take the G-6 ramp going up and go south hanging right.
