I finally got to the point on Apoc to farm Umbral Marrows and I was curious how hard ADL was to farm with the new gear out; I have 2 other people who are willing to help me farm (a blue and a dnc both averagely geared but with WoE WS unlocked) and myself (also averagely geared) on my DRK. Would we have a decent shot at him?

I was told today, not to ruin everyone's money making schemes, but a THF and an anything that can open darkness, can kill it before it splits.

Open darkness > SA Rudra instantly dead ADL. Personally, I would take a whm just in case though. I've yet to try it myself to verify.

have to do approx 28k on the rudras to kill it from 70%, seems reasonable enough if you aren't wearing sparks gear

Seems like a good way to waste a pop.

I have an ADL pop I've just been sitting on because I casually killed the xarc NMs for RoE, it's not hard to make an ADL pop so not much to waste.

Here in odin there are a duo thf + sch that have been neting 2 marrows a day, probably by using embrava and shattersoul+tarudra combo, though i never saw their fight so not sure how they work with wrong clone split. Also i saw a 4man party that will most likely win all their pop (samx2 - amano/koga, cor sch) by using embrava, allies roll, splitting and each sam picking a clone and multistepping.

Finally the party that farm the most number of marrows a day, something like 14 a day with 4 and 3 man party (2 runs). The party is mnkx2 thf rdm and rdm sam thf -> no rudra at all. I saw them using against dl 2 guys skillchain and the third stunning with flourish. But i never saw them doing adl. The only time i got close to see it, they warped after i checked their gear (eminent stuffs and some delve pieces), making me wonder wtf do they do.

The point is that you can kill it with a single SC BEFORE it splits. You just have to do enough dmg with the closing WS so that the Light SC one shots it. It's also possible to do with a SMN+GEO+COR.

Edit: here's a screenshot of a SMN doing it: http://www.ffxiah.com/forum/topic/35040/the-6th-ministrys-secret-a-summoners-guide/26/#2778469

Done it a number of times with RUN and BLU duo (well before the WS updates), just using Valiance Fast Cast and plenty of stuns to keep him and clones locked down. Ideally, we'd get his HP to around 60% before he summons so we'd only have 2 to worry about, and quickly dispatch one (which, if it's a clone, goes down quicker). Towards the end, moves like One For All and Thunderbolt pretty much negate everything short of Tera Slash. As RUN, I've resisted his terror many times.

I don't know how cost effective it is though. Marrows don't sell anymore, at least on my server. Seems mythic or gtfo

They don't sell because the RMT first drove them way down. Then the JPs refused to go over 4m. Well, the rest is history with undercutting.
