Dante and Nero feels better to play in Vanilla. Why Special Edition ?

Because it's vastly different with upgrade routes and movements. Some major notes are:

  • Speed takes less steps to activate
  • Higher Proud Soul reward
  • Can move Gyro Blades before it can finish the active animation
  • Rebalances such as buffed CS Damage

In Special Edition, do I have to delete Save File each time I reset ?

No, you could make the save file read-only which is located in Documents\CAPCOM\DEVILMAYCRY4SPECIALEDITION\ This will pervent the game overwriting the file each time it attempts to auto-save.

Some of the Room Clears doesn't make sense

Majority of the strats for this game rely on just playing well enough. Which means, at one point you will probably theorycraft something that won't lose time, compared to the strats and cycles seen in the runs.

Is this game RNG heavy ?

At certain point yes, DMC4 will become a dynamic run that requires runner to adapt several situation. Bianco Angelo in Mission 6 is a good example.

Are there any alternatives to Just Frame Gilgamesh ?

You could use Quick Drive or Distortion but, it's important to have this core skill in the run as mastering it will shave over 2 minutes.

What weapons do you use as Dante ?

  • Mostly Rebellion as it has fast and good damage and Stinger for movement
  • Gilgamesh is used for Just Charges
  • SM is the most used style for damage on demand like Real Impact or Prop/Shredder
  • His DT during the attack animation gives him a boost of damage. This is known as Distorting
  • Lucifer is used as a back-up scenario for quick damage Pin-ups or Ecstasy free parry
  • RG is severally nerfed as it takes longer to build rage-meter. Although, Guard cancelling can still be utilized
