Army Point Value is the cost of a unit to include it in the armies you build in the Golem Arcana app's built in Army Builder. Army Point Value (APV) is one of Harebrained Schemes' most versatile tools for making balance adjustments to units in Golem Arcana. As the APV for a unit is not included in any printed material, Harebrained Schemes is able to use gameplay data and battle results to make period content updates to the app in order to maintain balance between the various units.
Each Golem, Knight, Ancient One, and Relic has an Army Point Value relative to the unit's strength. The "generic" Golem Knights, those which have no special abilities, are unique in that they may be assigned to pilot a Golem but have a 0 APV.
