The Intimidating Glare Barbarian Power does not note that there is a restriction about how often you can use the ability. As far as I understood, rage powers can only be used while in rage, but if the intimidating glare can be used multiple times during a rage (for a move action each), it's a pretty powerful ability.

Can someone clarify how often per rage this ability can be used?

I don't see any restrictions on how frequently you can use it, but note that:

You can attempt to intimidate an opponent again, but each additional check increases the DC by +5. This increase resets after one hour has passed.

So, Intimidating Glare basically changes the normal Demoralize action by:

  • Decreasing the action cost from a standard to a move action.
  • Reducing the range from 30 feet to just adjacency.
  • Increasing the base duration from 1 round to 1d4.

This is clearly an improvement, but I don't see it as crazily powerful or anything. Cornugon Smash is substantially better in most cases (though you can't get it until later).

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Eregith, I read it as +5 for each other attempt in the past hour. \$\endgroup\$

The table of rage powers in the SRD lists some powers as being "once per rage".

There is no such restriction against Intimidating Glare.
