Armor works while stunned, but moreover you just don't get stunned/feared THAT often while tanking. Being tougher *all* the time is better than ending the occasional stun 0.2 seconds sooner.

If you're (theoretically) constantly getting with unavoidable stuns/fears in PvE, then your only reliable source of damage reduction is armor anyway. I mean, I guess shaving a second or two off of the stuns or fears would help a little, but you'd be better off just using the armor meta anyways and hoping your healers are paying attention.

If Blizzard ever puts a mechanic like that in the game, I would cry and/or possibly race change back to Human (if the latter, definitely the former!) :-(

The only meta that competes with +armor is spell damage reduction, and only on fights where magical damage outdoes physical (i.e. Lei Shi).
