I've been staring at this for a while without getting anywhere.

It seems pretty clear that the idea is to get the "serpent" onto the pressure plate, which means getting it through the firetraps. This suggests that I use the mimics, with each mimic getting it past one firetrap.

The easiest way to do this is to place mimics on the same turn that the previous mimic dies. However, the only potions that are set up to do this easily with are the ones in row 10. I can get a third by setting up another mimic before I get to that row and positioning myself carefully.

But I can't see a way to fit a fourth mimic in, either by having it exist before the pushing or grabbing its potion after I've started. I've also considered trying to push with the main Beethro, since there's nothing actually preventing him from going in there, but I couldn't see any useful options for doing that, either.

I could really use a push in the right direction here. At this point I'm not entirely sure I shouldn't be looking for a way to break the mechanism by getting a mimic on the plate and keeping it there.
