I've been stuck on this one for a while, too. I just kept trying, but failed.

I can get the roachqueen out, but not the roach. Have you gotten the roach queen out too, or can I help you with that?

Actually I get the roach but can't get the queen

I've been putting the Mimic at (1) and moving down and over to (2) before diaonaling to (3), And several times I've gotten the queen but then couldn't get out, damn red door

Oh, hey, thanks. In return, here's how to do the queen

EDIT:

Actually, your approach won't work because it keeps you from dropping the top "bridge" of trapdoors.

Dropping the red door is actually the easier part...it's dropping the green door that gave me a headache for the longest time.

OK I can see how to do this except how do I get the roach out? I have tried placing the decoys in various places to draw it out and then mimics to kill the decoys to move it on. But none of this works as I can't get the roach cloase enough to "see" me because of the invisibility potion. any suggestions please?

OK don't worry - post the question and spot the answer straight away!! Clever stuff this.

I still can't find the correct path to drop all the trapdoors. I killed the roach with a mimic and the queen myself, after which I'm stuck. I tried using a mimic to drop the trapdoors south of the corridor with the arrows, but don't have place for the mimic to step off. Please help!

It's the placing of the decoy to draw out the roach I need help with. Anyone care to give me a specific answer. I sure would appreciate it. Thanks

You'll need all the decoys (at least, I did)

What's to stop the roach from getting stuck on the first decoy it gets near, though?

None of these hints are helping me and trial and error isn't helping either. To attract the roach I need to use a decoy which I can't kill with the mimic due to lack of broken walls.

Which decoy are you referring to, there's only 1 decoy you can't kill?

Where have you placed the last decoy, and what happens if Beethro gets close?

As in, you know those L-shaped alcoves? I put a decoy on as far left as I can so that it attracts the roach, but it wont get killed by the mimic which I put in a farther left location

EDIT: I think I see a solution, I will try later

This room gave me quite the headache, and I'm pretty certain I stumbled on an unintended solution, but the way I solved it was:

Probably not the most elegant solution, but hey, it worked. :)
