What stat increases damage reduction

As the title says, I can't figure out for the life of me what combination of stats increases damage reduction. I have been looking through numerous guides and they say your damage reduction should be x% but I am no where near that amount.

It is dependent on a something called armor rating, which is in turn seemingly dependent on item level, what piece it is (i.e. chest vs boots), and whether its heavy/med/light armor (adaptive gives you whatever is highest for your class).

Armor rating
Besides that, passives and (some) utilities

Yep. What these guys said. Wearing 248 armor gives you the highest DR for your class/spec, assuming there aren't ability/utility procs. EX: Scoundrel's Slow Release Medpac gives 3% DR per stack if you take Supplemented Medpac utility. Sage Blockout utility gives 25% DR for X seconds after using your aggro dump Cloud Mind.

With regard to PT/VG, I believe the tank specs add a % armor rating to your current armor, which increases your DR.
