  Armor - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft
Armor is a class of items that mitigate damage and are equipped in the different armor slots (head, shoulder, back, chest, wrist, hands, waist, legs, feet, and off-hand for shield).
This sort of armor contributes to the Armor attribute, a numerical value that translates into physical damage mitigation in combat.
Given a constant melee DPS amount, each additional point of armor (whether it be from 0 to 1 or from 30000 to 30001) will increase the tanks time to live by the same effective amount.

If you put an armor piece in storage, delete the character, and create a new character with the exact same name and profession, that new character will not be able to wear the old armor.
