Title pretty much says it all. Im looking between these two feats and I can't decide what I like more.

Since Im using Imperious Command [Intimidation Build] the Extended range synergies well with Intimidating rage, giving +5 more rounds than normal to the Cower/Shaken affect.

On the other hand, Extra rages / day allows me to do exactly that. Rage +2 times a day, which in turn is +2 more Intimidating rage opportunity.

I just can't decide so I turn to the wisdom of the forum. Im actually leaning on + Rages a day, as nice as +5 rounds of Shaken would be. It should be dead before 2-3 rounds.

Thoughts? Ideas?
As always, thank you for the insight.

Depends. How long does your rage last now? Standard rage, the one the barbarian comes with, can last a long time, depending on your con. I find that 10 rounds of it will suffice for most combats. But if youíre using a variant, such as Whirling Frenzy, you donít get boosted con, so extend range might be worthwhile.

If you can't use rage in every combat encounter, what's the point of having it?

Its a home brew class. Thug. That uses "Recklessness" but he said I can treat it as rage for feat purposes.

It lasts 2 Rounds + 2 Rounds / Class Level.
So currently 4 rounds. At lv2. 6 rounds. and so fourth.

If it scales by class level, you don't need Extend. You'll quickly have nigh-infinite rage. Take Extra Rage.
