Support stat build suggestions

I'm a healer build SM with 3:1 con wis stat build atm, (wis and defense runes in my equipment) but I have the feeling I'm lacking in many areas. In pvp I still get killed in about 4 hits, and in both pvp and pve I still go OOM quite fast in dire sittuations when I need to spam critical heal. Not to mention my damage is so pathetic that I can't even scratch someone in pvp. All in all, I'm nothing more than an easely squashed heal slave.

I've been thinking about going full wis so I could replace my wis runes (well, I only got 2 wis runes left in my gear because of terrible runing luck) with magic attack runes so my damage would raise slightly. My wis would be high enough to spam some more critical heals, my damage would be slightly higher, but the downside is that I will die even faster in pvp. An OOM healer might be useless, but so is a death healer.

Instead of adding magic attack runes I could also go for con and hp, but then my defense would be even lower so those pesky warriors could squash me in 3 hits instead of 4. Not to mention my damage would stay exactly the same as now.
Ofcourse I could try to aim for a +10 staff to increase my magic attack, but then I still have to try to find a balance in both wis/mp, con/hp and defense.

All in all, I want to increase my mp/wis, but still have more than enough hp and defense to stand a few hits. I would prefer to have some more magic attack as well, but I can't have it all. I will most likely have to try to get more magic attack from enchanting my staff.

Oh one more questions for those SMs who specialised in the right tree; is mephisto's thorn worth maxing? Did anyone test the difference in damage and dot at lvl 1 and lvl 3? I haven't been able to decide yet if I should either max out thorn, or leave it at lvl 1 and put the remaining point(s) at the left side to get lvl 1 night terrors.

why u only 3:1 con/wis? where is ur int?? for magic attack and critical? no wonder u can't even scratch someone. 2:1 int/con. Mana (wis) u can use mana potions, they cheap. I just did 5 points on wis, thats enough.

Any other advises?

Decided to trade my red wis runes for magic attack in order to heal more, but still having my doubts about what yellow runes to add. I used to go for defense, and these work fine in pve, but it doesn't seem to do anything in pvp. I could try lvl 2 hp runes for an extra 500 hp, but 500 hp won't help much if people hit for 700-1k. (yes, well geared warriors can hit that much)
Been thinking about going full dex (or 3:1 dex wis for that extra bit of mp and mp regen) and socket yellow dodge runes, but with all those warrior and paladins going full dex I probably won't dodge a single hit in pvp.
Also been thinking about going int and socket yellow hp runes to still have a reasonable amount of hp, but the gains from int are quite minimum atm and I'll trade in a good chunk of survivability. At the other hand I'll atleast heal some more.
Still having mp problems in dire situations where I constantly have to spam critical heal, but I suppose I'll just have to scold people for being irresponsible and dying too fast. (ofcourse nowone ever listens to the healer)
Just for the information, I'm only socketing red and yellow runes for now till I either become rich or lucky...

Please keep in mind that I'm a healer build SM. I'm one of the first targets on the battle field and it's my first intention to stay alive as long as possible to keep everybody healed.
