I'm surprised there are even regular players left these days.
Check out a different server. Shiva has people who multi-box and bot, to be sure, but they seem to be in the minority. Most people I've met who have played consistently over the past decade have two or three alternate accounts, usually a full instruments Bard or Idris Geomancer and a White Mage. Playing on Asura seems to give a very limited view of what the other dozen servers are like.

I don't think ranged or magic would have made them easier at that point in time.

OK I just got home and able to check. I made a mistake, world 1st clear happened on May 2013, not June. A bit earlier than my bad memory remembered.

https://www.bluegartr.com/threads/115865-Delve/page101

RNG setup was indeed meta at that time. Pretty much all of the top end NA group at that time used rng setup, including tojil. People were posting early tojil wins with rng setup.

https://www.bluegartr.com/threads/115865-Delve/page142

But then JPs did it MNK melee/stun way then it replaced rng and became the new meta. I mean, rng was dead for long long time so it was harder to get an alliance of rng back then anyways.

Then the content eventually got easier as more and more people got Oat, and ilv update.

Personally, I feel legion in 2012 was still harder than delve, but I may be biased. I feel once MNK melee/stun became a thing and Oat became more common the difficulty dropped in a very short time. Ilv update in August made delve pretty much PUGable. My ls was clearing delve using 2/3 of alliance as soon as ilv update hit. On the other hand other harder content like legion or MT had same level of difficulty for much longer time.

Delve was certainly very challenge before world 1st happened though. Just getting an alliance of rng to even try meta strat was difficult since the job was dead for years so it was a rare Job back then.

"most" people on Asura don't multi-box. There might be a majority of people that have a second account, but usually the second account is something they're not super comfortable taking into content on its own. It's a bit more rare to find people actively taking 2-3 accounts into an Ambu with pugs, for example. Obviously we have the most people so we have the most of the mega multiboxing botting stars, but it's not a "majority" of the population by any means. Most people can still barely manage one character, they surely can't make two work. As with many things Asura, it's massively overblown how things work on the server.

Also don't really get into the fully automating portion of play. I've used cureplease on my tribox, and occasionally still will if it's like Dynamis or an Ambu where it needs to heal in addition to buffs/debuffs, but for the most part I actually press buttons to make my 2nd and 3rd char cast each spell. Seen too many people that do full automation and their characters will *** right off and mess things up on a regular basis lol
