I have to say, I'm starting to like this guy.
I had one before about 6 months ago around level 50 and did a few normal cow
runs.
Poison Nova rock! Cows just lay down.
I haven't gotten to the poison part yet, but he is going the bone route and
it's been pretty good so far. Actually, Andy was a piece of cake. Killed her
is less than five minutes.
Level 12 and I found a +2 to bone wall and just held her at the doorway
while my +5 golem and rogue chipped away at her.
I plan on using a golem as a good tank and I'm investing in the poison skill
level. I know I won't see any returns until about level 40 for poison, but
what has been the route for anyone who has tried this build?

I've finished hell with poison necro, fun build, didn't have many problems
except hell Ancients, fought them for almost an hour :). Maxed PD, PE & PN,
1 in bone armor, 10 in bone wall, 10 in bone prison, 1 in all curses, none
in summoning tree.
Merc is HF. It was a breeze until actII hell, there were plenty of poison
immunes, you'll find all curses very useful. Regarding equipment, I used 4
parts of Trang's set (except armor), Blackbog's Sharp, rare +2 P&B ammy,
crafted caster rings, rare boots, rare armor, 2 P&B grand charms, rest were
+life charms. Merc had Guillaume's Face, Iron Pelt and upgraded ethereal
Kelpie Snare. Had about 1100 life and about 500 mana. Fun build, but little
slow to play. You can try golem route instead of bone armor/wall/prison but
I wouldn't recommend it, you'll be too vulnerable. Have fun.
