My best attempt to accomplish this is still short by one move. I've pushed the goblins to one diagonal square from the ortho-square in their respective chambers, but I don't see what other ways can I trim another move.

I figured it out. You are almost there, no need to trim another move. Just kill the brain from a square that will cause the SE goblin to move as soon as it becomes unbrained.

Okay, I think I'm more confused now. NoahT's hint suggests a mirror-pushing approach similar to the 2N5W version for the SE chamber, but disoriented's suggests that the goblin is involved somehow. I can't get much from trying either. I also thought about trapping myself in the SE chamber with a mirror to trigger unbrained behaviour, but this version of the room has a pressure plate under the brain... Can someone please hint a bit more at what happens in the SE?

Well, Tuttle wasn't answered and didn't edit his post to say he was done, so just in case:

Cheers, the first half of that was enough to make the solution click. For anyone coming along later:

Arggh why this puzzle again, only harder?
I've beaten the previous version thanks to the MauveButterfly's video. Please, either full spoilers / walkthrough, or demo

The above posts don't make much sense, sorry

Thank you for the long answer.

My main problem is with the SE area.

I don't know how to leave the goblin there, without following me.
I tried using the mirror for the plate, but it's too late.

I would like a very direct solution to either of these. Spoilers please

Here's the problem

Goblin trick indeed works

I would have never in my life think of that. I feel like it's too quirky for my taste.

Mirror trick is useless, because you have to kill brain.

Now, the final post-mastery room. sigh. I liked this hold, except for this level
