You're standing on the east side of the mirror. This worked for you when you were pushing the mirror west, because when you stepped to the tunnel just above the mirror, the shortest path to you was from the west. Stepping east of the mirror cut off that path and caused the roaches to switch directions.

Now that you want a roach to dance in front of the eastern door while you push the mirror east, where will the shortest path from the roach to you be?

Hurrah. After much pleading. I went back and tried again and am now the proud solver of that room. It always seems to work that way. :thumbsup

Hmmmm. but there's the problem that I need to close the golem behind the doors. And I can't seem to do that

EDIT: I did it - What I was doing wrong was that

That was an interesting puzzle. On the surface it seems simple, but the execution is what makes it tough. Hopefully the hints will help other people who might struggle
