Tranquilize or kill all 8 Marids.

  • The starting point is in the lower southeast tunnels of the map.
  • Talk to the NPC to get a tranquilizer dart.
    • The darts are used to tame the eight marids.
  • There are two marids per room.
  • The marids are suspectible to sleep and gravity.
  • 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 2-3seconds)
  • 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)
  • 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 disppear.
  • 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 Marid's 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.
