Well, after setting this hold aside for over a year I'm coming back to clear out the last few rooms and will probably be posting in H&S a lot. For whatever reason I'm starting in this room. I managed to get the mirror free from it's spot and on one of the platforms. I can even get it pretty close to the upper right. Looks like I'm supposed to get either the goblin or the mirror on the plate at (23,14) and get whatever I didn't use on the plate to (16,12) Lots of dancing around weaponless on a platform with a goblin appears to be involved and I don't have much dancing left in me tonight. I'd love some explicit hints. I'm not above move sequences or demos either.

Okay, increasing levels of hint here.

Mild hint:

Hopefully that's enough to get you through.

Sorry, I should be more specific here. I have no problem with the big picture stuff. I'm fine with the idea of moving the mirror and the goblin around to the upper left area. I'm just exhausted from brute force searching for a series of moves that will actually accomplish that. I'm at this stage where I have the mirror free and on the big platform (only one you can really push it around on easily.

I need to get at least two platforms from here over to the west of the force arrows. I've tried moving the mirror to different spots so that it blocks the goblin on the platform. But honestly I'm just flailing in the dark here. I'm past the point where big picture hints are necessary and really just need a specific set of moves to get me past this hurdle.

What I did was too complicated to sum up as a move sequence, so I'll just note that the general order you're trying to do things in is different from what I did.

Specifically:
