    I say go with max life. Your skeles are going to provide more than enough cover for you anyway so block shouldn't really be relevant to this build. They are plenty of hybrid poison/skelemancer guides in the forum to look up if you're interested in going with psn nova but if you're planning to do a lot of mfing then I would go with max CE since it kills a lot faster than psn nova.

    if you're going to use use just skeletons you will have a lot of skillpoints left. Of course maxing CE is usefull, but it's only 20 points. You could also put one point in it and let +skills to the rest. That way you could max Poison Nova and some of it's synergies.

    about block: it's difficult to say, you get only 2 life for one vit so pumping dex is not going to cost really a lot vit, assuming you will leave energy at base with a skelemancer. The problem with block is that you need a good shield. if you have homunculous or whatever it's called or Trang's shield, pumping dex could be useful since you will block those nasty archers.

    edit: if you max skeleton mages too you don't have much points left so ignore what I said ;)

    kool, but is it only archers where block becomes useful? im using this char for eldritch or wahtever , pits and pindle.. Mayb baal as well ( but not his minions) . What im planning on maxing is skeleton mastery,skeletons so far, so thats 40 , 10 into curses ( 1 in each roughly ) = 50. I'm aiming for lvl 80 , so with all quests done..i should have 42 points left :D i heard mages caused more trouble than without , so im just gunna ignore mages :)

    Yep, only archers. Melee monsters shouldn't go past your Skellies.

    Mages can be very helpful, but you need to "baby-sit" them a bit more than Skellies.

    It can be difficult to use P Nova or high level CE without points in energy (though it can be done).

    Gives you a balance for things that can be blocked and things that can't...if your in area with both types, you'll most likely take less %% in health lose (relative) then with pump vit or max block
