The Varterral is much easier to beat on Hard than the Harvester! Assuming your using a high level imported character all your party should be level 30+ and very tough.

Basially all you need to do is set Finn's tactics to 'Ranged' and set him so he casts 'Heal All' when an ally's health reaches 75% (the default is 50) when you do that he stays near the entrance to the area and never gets hit.

Once that is done your party should move in a start attacking, when the Dragon's spawn take them out yourself and your party should keep attacking the Varterral, once the Dragons are gone switch back and you should take it out no problem.

Using this method with a level 32 Warrior I took it out in about 3 minutes without any of my party ever coming close to dying.

You will fight the Varterral at the Dragonbone Wastes. When you first get there, there will be a fight some small dragons, and then one more group of enemies. After defeating them, you should change the difficulty to hard.

The Varterral fight is actually pretty easy on hard as long as you have a high level character. Hybridchld's method is good, so there's no need to repeat it.

Here's a good video showing the fight.
