I don't know if anyone is still playing this game, but here are a couple of clues that are working well for me so far on "nightmare".
1) Try to kill mages or enemy with magical powers first. They can reach out to you effectively at a distance.
2) This is the real secret. Once the enemy with magical powers are dead, find a small corner or squeeze space that has room for only one person, or for several people in single file. If you found the right one, the enemy will not be able to squeeze in, and won't be very effective with arrows either. They'll stand jumping up and down, and you can shoot them at leisure, renewing your health every once in a while for the stray arrows that manage to hit you. You can pull this off even if 3 others in your party are dead.
If they are not in the right position for shooting, you can always come out, get them to chase you and go back to your squeeze space. They should be in shooting range then.
3) When you have a mass of enemies attacking you, often the best strategy is to have your entire group run away. Often, only a few enemy will follow you, and you can kill them separately. An added bonus to this strategy is that once all the enemy in sight are killed, even if you know there are more waiting around the corner, any members of your party that have been killed can be brought back to life. Again, this works best if the enemy with magic are already dead.
4) There are a few merchants in Ferelden that have unlimited supplies of crafting components. You can look them up on the internet. If you're running low on health potions, or injury, or whatever you use, you can always interrupt your quests, travel to the right merchants, and restock your potions. Actually, if you use the above strategies, your need for health potions will go dramatically down, although you might need a few more injury potions.
