Were you looking for general info about the Armor stat?

Bonus Armor is a bonus attribute originally referred to extra armor on any cloth, leather, mail, or plate items, or any armor that was on any other type of item, i.e. trinkets, rings, and necklaces.

Bonus armor was altered with the release of World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Warlords of Draenor to make up for the removal of Dodge (Removed) Dodge and Parry (Removed) Parry, becoming a Tank tank-specific stat. As with Spirit Spirit, it’ll only show up on rings, necklaces, cloaks, and trinkets. It’s clearly valuable to all tanks, and will be tuned to be much stronger than other secondary stats. Tanks will want to use items with Bonus Armor for those slots.

It will usually appear as Bonus Armor on item tooltips.
