    You put an awful lot of points in Revive. One should suffice. Unless you can get an awful lot of +skills it might be worth it to put some more points into the AI curses.

    The points in Spear will give you an acceptable Spear, but don't expect anything fancy.

    I would also read the Stickies. They contain a true vault of knowledge on this build.

    You probably won't need that many in revive. You don't need all curses. Lower resist, life tap and Iron maiden won't see much use.

    You probably wont hurt much with that Bone Spear without wasting points into mana. Use CE it's your friend. I'd say put most of those points into expanding your curse radius, CE radius or Skeleton mage

    Didn't see Marrow on your gear list, sorry. That should be fine to get a few corpses going then. Do try CE though, it makes things much quicker then just waiting on skelies

    You need more into Bone Spear(and synergies) to be more effective in nm and in hell(if you plan on killing faster). Like what the others had said, 10 into Revives is too much for your build(use them points into a Bone skill instead)

    christ...

    the laziness people display is truely disgusting. read the farcking stickies.

    Here's what you want for a bone / summon hybrid since you couldn't do anything outside of clicking "post new thread"

    Gear:
    20 mastery (max last)
    20 warrior (max first)
    1 clay golem
    1 gol mastery
    1 summon res
    1 bone armor
    1 bone wall (or more for more ba life)
    0 bone prison (you abuse marrow's)
    1 Corpse Explosion
    20 Bone Spear
    20 Bone Spirit
    1 Amp
    1ea Weaken / Terror (pre-req's)
    1 Decrep
    1ea Dim Vision / Confuse / Attract

    Done at level 83 with all above skills points placed, and all skill quests done. After this, I'd say pump Bone wall for more BA life, and more Bone Spear / Spirit DMG.

    Gear:
    SHAKO (+2 ALL)
    MARAS (+2 ALL)
    ENIGMA (+2 ALL)
    HOTO (+3 ALL)
    HOMO (+2 ALL / +2 CURSES)
    MARROWS (+33 SYNERGY BUG)
    DUAL SOJS (+2 ALL)
    ARACHNID MESH (+1 ALL)
    FROSTBURNS

    CHARMS: 1 ANNI / 5 PNB GRAND'S (+1 ALL / +6 PNB)

    This gives a grand total to +skills of: +15 summon / +17 curses / +21 PNB

    putting your stats to:
    13 skeletons @ 994 life / 443-447dmg
    Clay Golem @ 7218 life / 60% slow
    Bone Spirit @ 2280-2432 dmg
    Bone Spear @ 2149-2261 dmg
    Bone Armor soaking up 530 dmg

    Your stat points should look like this:
    Str: enough for gear taking ENIGMA into account
    Dex: enough for 75% block
    Vit: rest
    nrg: 70

    Get a might merc so your skells do some dmg. Give him dmg / ll / defense / dr.

    Use amp to help your minions. Use decrep on bosses. Use AI curses on packs.

    His idea for build is sound however, his presentation was lacking.
