I have one rough ruby and I am thinking of upgrading a spell to adept 3.  I already have adept 3 on Ice Comet, Immolation, Ball of Flames, Ball of Fire,  and Piercing Icicles.  I have a Master on Augmentation and Icy WInd (think that is the name).  Anyway I'm thinking of upgrading my power feed spells.  Fiery Surge or Essential Intromission to adept 3.  Does anyone have the numbers for those at adept 3?  Right now Essential Intromission gives target 114 power and Fiery Surge gives 245 power.  What are the numbers for adept 3. 
 
I do a lot of raiding with my guild and would like to be able to give back more power.  As in some raids my damage spells can be pretty weak.
 
My other option would be to upgrade Fiery Pulse which is my group AE/overtime.  I have it at adept 1 and was wondering what if any difference there is for adept 3?
 
Thanks in advance for any help!!

Well... I have most of my own spells at Adept 3 with the exception of my group buffs and AOE (group) attacks.  For my buffs, I just didnt see a significant enough increase in stats to warrant using a ruby on them.  Some, I only see a 5 point buff difference between Adept 1 and Adept 3.  And the lack of use of my AOEs led me to once again save my rubies for later.

Now... I went with Training option to Fiery Surge because of the 6 (or is it SMILEY second downtime, and Adept 2 quality.  However, another Wizard in my guild did have a Fiery Surge Adept 3 made, and from what he says the transfer gain from Adept 1 to Adept 3 is rather disappointing.  I'm sorry I dont have the numbers on me though.  I'll try to get him to tell me the stats on it and compare it to my Fiery Surge Adept 1.

I am sitting on 6 rubies right now.  I'm hoping that in the spell revamp we'll see a more significant increase on some of the spells i'm holding out on upgrading.  As it is now, I kind of feel gipped upgrading something that really doesnt make any difference.  For me, the most important upgrades were to get everything to Adept 1, then get Nukes to Adept 3, then Debuffs to Adept 3.  Gradually I got a couple others... but I just cant see me spending the rubies as it is now.

All of them.  Every T4 and T5 Debuff.  This would be:

Piercing Icicles
Icy Wind
Freezing Wind

My T3 spells are at at least Adept 1.

I have a master Firey Surge and it gives roughly double the amount of power back that the Adept 1 version gave me. It's definately a very significant increase.

Here are two more Adept III power related spell's stats. Essential Intromission Adept III     126 Vitalic Harvest Adept III                  305 I use Rath'Adran's Fiery due to the shorter stun period so have not upgraded the Fiery surge.
