You will need the three AI curses. Put points in them. Less on the CE more on BA synergies.

Gear looks nice.

max bone wall dont even put a point into bone prison, use the lvl 33 syn bug on marrowwalks and put about 10 points or so into CE. this is just MO but whatever you wanna do..

I have a meleemancer lvl 83, and there's one thing I've learned from playing him. GET LOTS OF AR. I'm serious. My meleemancer was equipped almost exactly as you have written up, and he was gettin torn new ones right and left in hell. So I stepped back and reexamined my gear. I opted out of my uber gear (ie. vampgaze, SS) and instead turned to stuff that didnt seem so cool (ie. Sigon's helm + any Sigon's item). Boy, did the AR boost make a difference. You really should consider gettin more AR by any means necessary.
