    On build 577 now and I tested again.

    Unbuffed my base stone fist damage at lvl 100 is 27-84
    Buffed with lvl 100 Strength of earth (+21.5 STR) this increases to 28-85
    Buffed with lvl 100 Enlightenment (+19.6 INT) this increases to 28-88
    Buffed with both the STR and INT buffs above damage is 29-89

    So it is scaling with STR, however, very slightly (about 25% of the scaling when compared to INT for my character), which seems wrong considering the earth skills specifically state on the skill tooltip:

    Close range attack that does bonus damage based on the casters strength

    The skill has been changed to the point where the tooltip is now deceptive

    Can confirm the same, I know we were expecting a "slight" reduction in the str bonus but the str bonus is now nearly nonexistent.
