Are they considered missile? Spell?

For drakes/wyverns, it was one of their base attacks if it was something natural to them.  If was an intelligent creature with access to spell lists (or equivalent) then it counted as a spell.  One of our players has a pixie with access to spell lists, but breath spell isn't natural to the pixie versus a dragon.
If discretion is the better valor and
cowardice the better part of judgment,
let's all be heroes and run away!

Ok for natural, how long does that take? 100% I would think it would be faster than a normal melee attack, I was putting at 75%

I would rate it along the missile weapons (60%).

Hmmm, part of my post is missing.

Breath weapons, if are natural for the creature, take the same percentage as a melee attack.  If it's from a spell list, then the percentage for casting any spell.

For the drakes, their attacks can be combo attacks:
On Land:  Breath + (1 claw or 1 bash)
Diving Attack: Breath + (1 Horn or 1 Claw or 1 Bash)

In this the breath attack still allows for a melee attack.
If discretion is the better valor and
cowardice the better part of judgment,
let's all be heroes and run away!
