In combat, Albert will rarely use his shield, instead relying on brute force to overpower his foes. He will frequently attempt to break through the player's defenses with jumping attacks, and will make use of his warcry to stagger the player to 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 fountain and the Winged Knight, in the left corner. He may only be summoned if Emma is alive, and will use a Black Separation Crystal if she is killed while he is summoned. For this reason, he may only be summoned against Vordt of the Boreal Valley.
- Grand Archives - Found in the big courtyard near the top of the archives. He will fight the player alongside Black Hand Kamui and Daughter of Crystal Kriemhild.
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 join the fight after a determined amount of time, so one must deal as much damage as possible before they arrive.
Albert's attacks are slow and predictable, and he usually need to wait a moment before recovering from most of them, which leaves him frequently 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 try to finish them there one by one.
It is also possible to run past the trio and reload the save. 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.
