I'm ordering my droid tomorrow and it's used but really only comes with the marker and barrel. My last used marker came with everything but lube and allen keys. Should I pick up some o-rings from o-ring monkey when I get it? And I have Hater Marm but I heard it's better for asa and reg lubing, what should I use to lube the bolt/breech with? Or will Marm suffice?

Extra orings, lube and Allen keys are a must.

If you're going to service your own markers, no matter which one it is. You want the allen keys, o-rings and lube. Without a doubt.

I can pretty much guarantee that'll be too thick. The new Macdev Militia lube is your best bet. Make sure you get the tube and not the jar to make sure its the new formula.

Can I use marmalade for reg/asa servicing? Or should I get Militia lube and just use that throughout the entire marker?

Just use Marmalade for now. If it doesn't work out, I'd suggest Lurker Lube.

The droid I purchased comes with a tub. Is there something wrong with the old formula?

It should work fine. Try it out to see. Worst case scenario is you have some bolt stick.

Haha isn't the whole point of lube to prevent bolt stick? I'll try it out as soon as it comes

The purpose of lubricant is to reduce friction, and with orings, help seal air. Some lubes have a higher viscosity which leads to bolt stick.

Lurker Lube is too thick for a Droid/Clone IMO. What is wrong with using the manufacturer developed and recommend lube?
