You just have to adjust for a difficult game. I was pretty surprised at how difficult it was at first, and that wolf fight was a tough one on hard.
But, as soon as you adjust and become suitably cautious - the game changes and becomes quite comfortable. I actually found it too easy for the most part, but that's what happens when you make an effort to learn the game, and most games that start out hard will end up something else if you invest.
I'm sure there's a myriad of ways to handle fights, but I found two mages to heal/control very helpful. Once I got that, most fights became a breeze.
The difficult fights generally had 2-3 Boss mages - and it became a question of taking them out of the fight ASAP, with the rest being a cakewalk. Pretty boring and predictable, really, but that's mostly due to the AMOUNT of fights. Way too much filler combat for my tastes.
