Our tanks picked the strenghs up and we cleaved them down, increasing boss damage. Keeps the dps from having to move as well, which increases dps. Try it.
That's only viable on normal. Their aoe slam thing gets incredibly large very quickly on heroic. They also spawn a charge thing upon death that can buff the boss. If you plan on doing heroics, I would have a melee do it.
whoever has threat and can dodge his strikes. The strengths deal 0 melee damage throughout the entire encounter. The only damage they deal is their AoE knockdown that can be easily avoided by any class.

I did a part pug, part guild run yesterday just Will of the emperor for those dps who were benched for this week's raid. We had all ranged dps, due to me pulling aggro on my mage, I ended up Tanking the strengths, either blinked or dodged their knockdown attack. So yes totally possible to do without melee.
