This isn't true.

Internal and elemental damage aren't mitigated by armor, but many abilities which cause yellow damage text are actually Kinetic or Energy damage, which is mitigated by armor.

Armor mitigates all white damage, and most yellow damage.

If your yellow damage is kinetic or energy damage, then it's mitigated. Most yellow damage from force lightning to back blast falls into this category.

The only damage that isn't mitigated is internal and elemtental. Which is a pretty small percentage for most classes.

I've found that most classes i've played have about 2/3 of their damage mitigated by armor, so simply put, it does a lot.
