as a prot warrior nothing has changed, still as easy to solo as before hotfixes
As a warlock they were easy before the change, now they are a tad more challenging but not impossible. Before the patch I could summon my voidwalker as much as I want if it died since it could just taunt and grab threat, now I HAVE to keep it alive and I HAVE to make it move away from the spirit that is summoned. I did them all solo before the change and I am still doing them solo now ^.^
I had a druid following my group around when we were killing warbringers, and he'd just knock them off the edge and taunt reset them. I'm so happy that they fixed this
Warlocks can still solo them just fine, you just have to avoid pulling aggro from your void lord - that's all.
Personally, I've made a /tar macro for the spirits, hit it a soon as a spirit spawns and spam one or two fel flames asap - problem solved, as it takes them about two seconds before they actually start attacking something after they appeared.
Just remember to turn taunt off - at least as long as they are up so that VL/VW won't taunt them back.

I agree with Neronex, Just out-range with Cheetah and break fear with BW if needed.

The really frustrating thing about this is that it didn't honestly fix the issue anyways. I was fighting one of these this morning and some jerks realized that their old griefing methods didn't work and decided to, instead, aggro a bunch of normal mobs and kite them over to me to try to get them to stick. All it did was give me more Vengeance to work with; but it goes to show that as long as other players can involve themselves in trying to make your day worse, they will find a way to do so.
Just phase the flippin' fights like they do with the guy that drops the Grey Camel; and then balance it however you want. There; now the fight is in a vacuum for the person (or people) who tag it and nobody can mess with anybody else. The end.

Leaving a comment would make my day. Seriously.
Soloed as a prot pally. Still doable. Manage cooldowns but it takes forever.
Really nice how they become easier and easier to Solo as the Gear and Skill increases:
Once I soloed a Warbringer and two Scouts at once although the buttonmashing involved was neither healthy nor good for the Keyboard.
