As someone who's guild was in a similar boat, I can say that FOR US, the first four bosses in DS were easier than Rag, and defeating Rag is by no means required to progress in DS. In fact, this whole expansion, Blizzard seems to be on the model of the last boss in a place being a good bit harder than the rest of the instance. I would suggest something like option 6 or 4. Depending on your DPS, Ultraxion will likely be a bit of a speed bump (it is for us) and after a few weeks you'll likely be able to clear to Ultraxion in one night, giving you any other nights free to work on Firelands. Right now we're doing one week of clearing up to Rag, and the next week extending the lockout and working on Rag, then repeating, all while also clearing the first four bosses in DS every week and getting some attempts in on Ultraxion. Overall I think that's a decent compromise and a good way to keep things interesting. Good luck!

I was thinking along these lines. Why not do dragon soul first 4 bosses, you'll be able to farm much better gear which will help on ragnaros. (Won't help completely, but more dps means less time to make mistakes, more HP means more margin of error for tanks, etc.)As far as farming firelands, that's gotta be a tough sell at this point. You had 6 months to get a staff, and many higher end guilds have multiple staves (see Scott's statement above). If the guildmate is a month or more away from completing the staff, it's going to drive a lot of people away, forcing the guild to continue to do firelands that much.
