Finding: Albedo's E AoE is cylindrical and has a maximum height just over the elevator's height.
Evidence: Linked video showcases different flower positions on a wall and confirming if Albedo's E will proc. Attached Screenshot shows relative distance from a shadow on the wall.
There was no point where it was possible to proc E underneath the flower versus on the outermost part of the AoE supporting that it is Cylindrical and not Spherical.
Significance: It is possible to place Albedo's flower in an elevated position to avoid it getting destroyed.
Further Testing: I've experienced placing Albedo's flower on top of Electro Hypostasis' summons during its death phase and it remained suspended after the summon was destroyed. This may be replicated in Albedo + Zhong teams with Zhong's pillar however I cannot test this as I do not own Zhong.

Finding: Albedo's elemental skill snapshots, meaning that damage for its entire duration is calculated when the skill is cast, so any buffs gained/lost after the skill is cast will not affect the skill's damage.
Albedo's skill does not get affected by Ningguang's Jade Screen buff, since Albedo cast the skill before walking through the screen.
Signifiance: Will help improve rotations to deal more damage. In rotations, Albedo should only cast his skill after getting buffed.

Finding: Albedo's Fatal Blossom damage is based on stats snapshotted when his E is cast, not at the time of Q cast
Stats remain constant in each scenario. Only difference is order of bennett Q and albedo E. Fatal blossoms in first clip deal 88 damage, while in the second they are 503. Specific Attack Calcs: Google Sheet
This is similar to Ningguang's Q, where the gems from the screen have their stats taken from the E's Screen.
Signifiance: To maximize Albedo Q damage, E should snapshot any attack buffs, as otherwise the fatal blossoms will not gain damage. Also shows why in my testing, fatal blossoms do not gain mistsplitter stacks.
