False. I don't say "I can solo Daru".
I HAVE solo'd Daru. (2nd form with mobs, that is. The party was still alive during the first form, but solo'ing the first form with mobs isn't particularly anything to brag about when you're using the Cactus Glitch, I think. They all got plastered without killing a single mob within 30 seconds of Daru transforming)
....that said, don't bet all your chips on me because my success rate isn't 100% with that. Still, I've done it before, with great difficulty and great rarity to be sure (and it took a friggin' long time), but you only need to do something once to prove it isn't actually impossible.
In Tia's case, the strategy is to abuse Hide, throw out Thundershock when there's an opening (but make sure there's an opening, or you'll be punished!), and throw out flying knives... whenever. Eventually the mobs will die. ...eventually. Once 2nd Daru form is alone, you can either wait until he does his running charge and backstab him then, or you wait until he does his ground pound into jumping massive giant flame move and then A rape him after the ground pound while sucking up the giant flame that doesn't knock down (I end up having to do the latter more often than I'd like)
(I don't think many people are capable of this, though. One thing about me is that I've fought Legendary Daru pretty often compared to a lot of people, I think, so I'm rather experienced with the fight)
