Quick Question

General Discussion
What is the difference between armor and defense. Do they both do the same thing (dmg reduction)? I realize one is an attribute and the other is a stat on item. I just don't understand the difference or point of having 2 separate stats that do the same thing.
Its been answered in multiple other threads, and a quick search would have easily found you the answer, but im in a decent mood tonight. Armor reduces physical dmg, a physical resistance if you will. Defense reduces all dmg taken.
Essentially, if we use some math, someone can correct me as well, it works like this:

Damage taken - Defense% - Armor(if Physical)% in addition

Not sure exactly how the percents work, but you can go look it up. Literally type in "armor" or something.
