I just got this achievement with a mage using this strategy. Build a mage with the Arcane Warrior/Battle Mage build and invest most points into magic. You will want Willpower and Constitution over 30 each. The essential talents are are the in battle mage tree, but it is a good idea to invest in some good sustains.

As far as strategy goes, don't use any mana healing your mates because they won't make it. The idea is to run from the boss and its minions and cast waking nightmare on them. All the skeletons will be affected and start attacking the boss. Use this time to go around the enemies and begin attacking. When the affect wares off, begin running again until you can cast waking nightmare again. Because you have a battle mage, whenever you take damage you will add more mana to your pool. Just keep using potions, salves and healing spells to keep your mage alive and you won't run out of mana.

Hope this helps.
