The basic rule of thumb is, a skills attribute scaling applies to all sub abilities within that tree unless stated otherwise. Both Lightning in Maestrom and Tornado scale with Attunement correctly; Lightning casted by both trees has slightly different base damage but the scaling is the same.

Technically, the error here is that Lightning’s Attunement tooltip tag in Maestrom should be removed because it implies that Lightning in this specific tree scales with Attunement twice, once with inheriting scaling from the skill and then again from it’s base tag.

We are still undecided whether adding something like “fake tags” on sub abilities to remind players that sub skills also scale with the same attribute as the core skill but can also confuse players.
