Lion Knight Albert is a non-respawning enemy in Dark Souls III.


A knight clad in the Faraam Set. He wields a Greataxe and the Golden Wing Crest Shield.

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.




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.
