Personally never had any issues with enemies from behind, I am constantly running around engaging enemies so I rarely stay in one place for any length of time. I will say one of the reasons why I do not play on the harder difficulty is not that its hard but because regular enemies power through most of your abilities which does not make it fun to play so I can see where that is a problem.

For Bosses, I rarely use the target lock but that is because I am always initiating combat and rushing towards them unless they are doing their teleport thing. I spent a lot of time in the training area using different moves to see how effective they are and always looking at moves that juggle the enemies where you can get the max amount of damage.

I also have upgraded and mastered all trees for all weapons which is where the training area really helps especially getting into your fire, frost or stun abilities the quickest as it helps to dish out more damage in a short period of time.

Perhaps you could try regular mobs on balanced and increase difficult with bosses or on the extra bosses =p it is possible to get combos on the bosses if you have good reaction.

I know that the arrows helped me a lot because I was playing most encounters throwing axe =P

The mastering I got most of them while normal gameplay and trying stuff out, but when I was close to end to improve my damage for the trials and challenges I gone to that arena and done the other mastering.

You can definitely get combos on bosses no matter how hard, as long as you know their stun window and what stuns them.  You cannot trade with bosses as they will nuke your health so I only use my special abilities when I get a stun or shield parry.  All bosses have that stun gauge at the bottom of their health bar which I am constantly looking at for when I can unload all my abilities using all my weapons without them jumping away or trading blows with me.  

I usually only play the harder difficulty when I max out a character in New Game plus when I can use all my abilities, armor etc.

Yeah, the moves you use a lot you will quickly master.  Other moves you will just not remember which is what usually happen with me until I get a chance to just spam them in the training and see how best to use it.  Mostly I am looking to see how effective the move is based on different enemy types.
