Armor in Diablo 2 consists of five types pieces: Helm, Chest Armor, Belts, Boots, Gloves and Shields. Each piece of armor can be equipped on their respective equipment slot. Armor provides defense, which decreases the chance of getting hit by Enemies, and they also provide with different fixed and random modifiers that affect the player stats.

Armor can be obtained as Enemy or Boss drops, inside chests/crates that the player can open around the world and dungeons, they can be purchased from Merchants, and can be Crafted.

Rarities

Armor can drop in different rarities, each providing more or less random modifiers: The names of Magic, Rare, Crafted/Very Rare, Set, and Unique Items appear in BlueYellowOrangeGreen, and Gold text, respectively.

Magic Items: Magic Items have 1 or 2 magical attributes applied to  the basic item.

Rare Items: Rare items contain 2 to 6 magic properties attached to them.

Crafted Items: Similar to Rare Items, but can only crafted using the Horadric Cube. These items possess fixed properties as well as random Magic Prefixes and Suffixes.

Set Items: Set Items bestow additional magic abilities to the user once  some or all of itts pieces have been equipped. 

Unique Items: Unique items have unique names and attributes, and are the rarest among all item classes.

Durability

Weapons and Armor show a numeric Durability rating in their description. The first number indicates the current durability of the item, while the second one represents the item Max durability. When an item's durability is low, you will see a silhouette in the upper right corner of the screen indicating the state of the damaged item. Items with low durability will be displayed in yellow. On the other hand, items that have reached 0 durability, will be displayed in red. 

Once an item reaches 0 durability, it can not be equipped nor used until repaired. In order to repair an item, you have to head to town and pay the local blacksmith.

 

All Armor in Diablo 2

Chest Armor in Diablo 2 is a type of Armor that the player can equip to increase their defense. Chests Armor use the chest slot located on the players inventory when equipped. Depending on their rarity, Chests can have random or unique modifiers that greatly increase the player capabilities.

 

Armor Types

An armor's description indicates the Strength needed to don the protection. If your character does not meet the requirement, the armor cannot be equipped. Unusable armor display a red background in your inventory. Armor descriptions also contain other important information, including defense value, chance to block an attack (if applicable), current and total durability, and any magical properties.

Armor can also affect your ability to run. Heavier armor depletes your Stamina more quickly. This can be offset to some extent by increasing your character's vitality
