Need help with my Necromancer.

Hello. This is my first character, 59 level atm. I planned to have Poisonmancer, the skills I have now:

Teeth: 1
Corpse Explosion: 1
Poison Dagger: 20
Poison Explosion: 20
Poison Nova: 20

....plus a few points in Curses to get Lower Resist.

The stats are:

Strenght: 60
Dexternity: ~95
Vitality: Can't remember, but most of the points went here.
Energy: 25

These are base stats.

I want my Necro to be mostly PvP, but I would like to be usable in PvM parties too.
What skills and stats should I boost? Is Bone Prison usable in PvP? Is the Necro usable in groups just because of bone wall/bone prison?

Whad did I do wrong with stats/skills? Is it fixable?

Sorry for stupid questions.

I think it's enough to leave str at base. Poisonmancer gear doesn't require high stats. The highest str requirement is marrowwalks, which is 98 (actually it is 118, but it gives +20 str, so you can load up on str charms, equip them, and then take the str charms away), if you wont use marrowwalks, the highest str requirement will be trangs belt (91). You've put way to many points in strength imo.

What kind of gear are you planning to run/are you running at the moment? He may be untwinked at the moment, and needed the str to run his current gear. A lot of people max LR, IG/CG/GM, or skellies, but I'm not sure what is correct from here on out, I haven't played a poisoner so I'm speaking in theory and from what I have read, not from experience.

Most people put one point only in lower resist (because of diminishing returns), and max raise skeleton and put 1 point in all summoning skills (for PvM you shouldn't put a point in fire golem, but in PvP it's good to finish the opponent after he has 1 life from your poison)
