I tried it out on an alt and it seems that you are supposed to stack wound buffs to make shotgun attacks more effective. OK. But the wound skill description is clearly bugged...IIRC it says you only need 5 sword slashs to get the highest wound buff level, but its more like 5 to get the FIRST level. Using the sword to manually stack wound buffs takes way too long.
Theres a SP skill to automatically apply the highest wound buff level + another SP skill to exted the wound buff duration, but the problem is that the former has a pretty long cooldown and the latter only extends by a few seconds. I found that I needed to spam the SP skill to extend the wound buff several times before I could get enough time to use all 6 of my shotgun shells without having the wound buff drop a level. The constant SP skill spamming simply to extend the wound buff seems like it hurts DPS a lot. If the wound buff drops a level, you have to waste too much time using the sword to get it to the highest level again, so it seems like using the SP skill to extend the duration is essential.
Shotgun doesnt seem to do that much damage either unless you are using red shells + max wound buff. Reloading also seems like it takes too long compared to just firing + auto reloading. Using the dodge special reload to reload with red shells takes too long as well unless you are doing it before you trigger the boss, and quick reload has too long a cooldown.
I tried asking around but most of the replies i got were along the lines of "nobody plays teide LOL" and "teide is a joke".
Anyone have any suggestions on how to maximize DPS with Teide? The best thing i managed to come up with so far is using dodge + 3x shotgun, SP skill for max wound, dodge + 3x shotgun to get as much SP as possible, extend the wound duration whenever necessary, quick reload + shotgun damage skills, extend wound, etc....but this was with trans giving me the SP generation buff and it wouldnt work without trans.
