You replace your "Dragon breath" racial encounter power with the new test from the Theme power, which changes the features of your dragon breath power. The damage die increases from a D6 of damage to D10, and you may use your highest ability modifier when determining the attack roll and damage roll. You gain access to special burst features for your dragonborn "Dragon Breath" racial power, in addition other ongoing effects. Your power can instead use a close burst 2, area burst 2, or 5 x 5 close blast size instead of the ordinary burst size. When you use your dragonbreath racial power, you can modify it's shape to form a cone, line, or diamond. Your power can effect an area in a cone shape that increases to 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11, a line that covers a 3 x 10 area, or a diamond shape that produces an area 4 spaces in every direction. As well, you may expend an encounter power to regain the use of your Dragonborn Dragon Breath racial encounter power.
Level 5 Feature
When bloodied, you gain a scaling +2/3/4 bonus to damage on all damage rolls. Furthermore, you gain an extra use of your "Dragonbreath" racial power.
Level 10 Feature
You gain a bonus to your healing surge value equal to your highest ability modifier. You also gain the "Instinctive Flight" Dragonborn racial feature (Dragon Magazine #421), even if you already chose another feature. When using your Dragon Breath power, you can utilize any of the base elemental types associated with the power instead of only the power you chose at the beginning of your character creation, but you may only choose to apply one damage type and the associated ongoing effect at a time. In addition, when you choose your dragonborn elemental damage type, you gain an additional damage type associated with that type, or you do lightning in addition thunder damage, acid with force, cold with necrotic, fire with radiant and poison with psychic. This effect applies to other powers that are determined by your dragonborn racial power's type.
