A great CC tactic is the Sleep + Waking Nightmare combo. Set tactics to Enemy-clustered with 3 or more allies (Or 2 more, etc.) to use sleep, then Enemy - Asleep - Waking Nightmare.

Causes enemies that fail the save to attack one another or stand around, while the rest stay asleep, and are open to direct (massive) damage from Horror as well.

There is a lot on just one disc.

I have not even tried to use Morrigans' shapeshifting properties (perhaps she can have a scrap with her mother but I'm not going there yet). Seems there are possibilities to be explored.

Problem is that enemies ambush in transit and there is no option but to fight it out. When surrounded, rogues seem to die fast so for the moment I'm favouring tanks protecting a mage dualled for healing and hitting.

I still die more than I like so I'm nowhere near getting it right yet.

My Dual Wield stealth Rogue doest die at all.
None of the characters die much with the proper tactics but Rogues can survive quite nicely, even against revenants and Dragons.
