Currently @ Adept 3, I get 284 ward and cost is 62 power.  I noticed that in the thread "What Adpet 3 to get" there were a couple different numbers people were getting.
 
So I thought people should post what the ward/cost is so we can see if the crafting process determines better adept 3's and stats,,, I used a Coral in mine.
 
The way I did my experiment was stand and hit DoF, cost me 62 each time (exactly what it says when i examine it)... then to test the ward, i use dof and add up the ward, oo you can go to EL do DoF and get your ward in one shot SMILEY
 
Hope to hear from you guys!

My Adept3 DoF wards 249 damage and costs 49 power to cast.  It was made using silver, and by a lvl 21 Alchemist in Freeport.

Your Ward is going to vary, not only on the level of the spell (Apprentice or Adept I, II or III) but also on the general level of the caster. Remember, a higher level caster is going to ward for more than a lower level, and expend a bit more power to get there. -I think the theory here is as you become accustomed to using the spell, you figure out how to get more bang for your buck... kind of like the difference between car gas and airplane fuel...  car gas is cheaper  and doesn't burn as hot, jet fuel costs more and burns hot enough to melt the typical car engine, but you can go up to 10x's faster, too).
 
Hope this helps.  If you don't believe me, try an experiment yourself (unless it's greyed out for you, then you are maxxed, no more improvementswithout upping the level of the spell itself).

Actually from what I have experienced from crafting the better made the spell is the lower the power cost. Typically what I have seen is that a spell that costs 17 at app. 1 will cost 17 for crude at app. 3, 16 for the next level, 15 for next and 14 for pristine. I'm not totally positive if this is how it works on all the spells or not but that is what I have been seeing.

you get enternal pact or whatever to replace DoF, and it's much better. Mines like app2 and it absorbes 300ish

I second that .. spells are made to be replaced, when you are a SK, start upgrading those spells for the best results.
