As of Patch 3.3, all head and shoulder enchants that require a kind of reputation level to purchase are now Bind on Account.
Hence meaning you will only need one character revered (or Exalted) to get these enchants, then you can send them to your alts so that they can use it (your alts will not need the reputation to use the enchant).
If you were thinking about placing this onto a BoA heirloom shoulder piece, keep in mind, it may not need the rep to use it, but it certainly does require level 80 to use its benefits! So please read this before you go and spend approx. 80-100g on it and that money goes to waste like I did :*(
With the dodge debuff in icc, and bosses that don't hit (relatively) hard, this enchant is much better than the pvp 30 stam - 15 resil one.
Blizz has gone to making shoulder enchants available to all of your characters (with appropriate level requirements to prevent OP twinks)...so you only have to do the rep (or honor/stone) grind on one toon.
This applies to Sons of Hodir (req lvl 80), Wintergrasp (req lvl 80), Honor (req lvl 70), Violet Eye (req lvl 70), Aldor (req lvl 64), Scryer (req lvl 64), Argent Dawn (req lvl 55), and Zandalar Tribe (req lvl 55), enchants.
The enchants can be placed on gear worn by low levels (e.g. BoA gear), but the enchant will be red until the character reaches the required level. For the non BoA enchants (PreBC and BC), you have to have the gear in your inventory to enchant it. It can not be applied through the trade window (so enchanting your lowbie's quest reward gear is out).
With 4.0.1, the defense rating on this enchant was converted to 22 stamina, making it somewhat better.
For ICC, the
is still slightly better due to the value of stamina over avoidance, but with Cataclysm coming out in a few weeks, it won't be an issue for much longer.
And Blizzard wised up and put stamina on the shoulder enchant this time around, which is also nice.
EDIT: With the release of Cataclysm and the redesign of healer mana, avoidance stats are substantially more useful than they used to be. Doesn't really matter for this enchant, though, since few people raid at level 80 anymore.
