In combat, Albert will rarely use his shield and instead rely on brute force to overpower his enemies. He will frequently attempt to break through the player's defenses with jumping attacks and will often make use of his weapon's skill, Warcry, to stagger them and ensure lethal follow-up attacks.
- High Wall of Lothric
- Appears as a summonable phantom. His sign can be found after the small courtyard with the Winged Knight, on the left corner. He may only be summoned if Emma is alive; if she is killed while he is summoned, then he will make use of a Black Separation Crystal and leave the player's world. For this reason, he may only be summoned against Vordt and not against the Dancer.

Albert's two companions, Black Hand Kamui and Daughter of Crystal Kriemhild, will usually provide ranged support while he engages the player in close combat. It is not advisable to fight all three enemies at once, and instead try to draw them in one by one with ranged attacks. However, even if only one of them has been attacked, the other two will eventually join the fight, so one must try to deal as much damage as possible before they arrive.
Albert's attacks are slow and predictable, and it will usually take him some time to recover from most of them, which frequently leaves him open to backstabs. Always let him attack first and then fight back.
If his companions are giving trouble with their ranged attacks, one can retreat inside the library, where walls can provide cover, and then try to finish them there one by one.
It's also possible to run past the trio and then quickly exit the game. This will reset their positions, at which point the player may use Dung Pies to kill them without drawing aggro.
Golden Wing Crest Shield
- Knight Albert has two charges of his Estus Flask during combat.
- After defeating him, the Faraam Set will become available for purchase from the Shrine Handmaid.
- Since killing Emma makes him abandon the player's world, and he wields the Golden Wing Crest Shield, a shield used by blue knights, that may imply he has some sort of affiliation with the Way of Blue covenant.
