Like most people i Too have decided to play a Dragonborne Paladin.

but a question when i use my flame breath(i will be choosing fire)

can i combine Divine Strength with the breath weapon to the damage so it would be

1d6 + (Con and str)mod

here are the skills descriptions.

Dragon Breath
Encounter Acid, Cold, Fire, Lightning, or Poison
Minor Action Close blast 3
Targets: All creatures in area
Attack: Strength + 2 vs. Reflex, Constitution + 2 vs. Reflex, or
Dexterity + 2 vs. Reflex
Hit: 1d6 + Constitution modifier damage.
Increase to +4 bonus and 2d6 + Constitution modifier
damage at 11th level, and to +6 bonus and 3d6 +
Constitution modifier damage at 21st level.
Special: When you create your character, choose Strength,
Constitution, or Dexterity as the ability score you use
when making attack rolls with this power. You also choose
the power’s damage type: acid, cold, fire, lightning, or
poison. These two choices remain throughout your character’s
life and do not change the power’s other effects.

Channel Divinity: Divine Strength , Paladin Feature

Encounter , Divine
Minor Action, Personal
Effect: Apply your Strength modifier as extra damage on
your next attack this turn.

since you have to roll an attack now when you use the breath weapon does it count as an attack?
one problem is I don't think you can take two minor actions.
You CAN make 2 minor actions if you trade in a move or standard action for it. So yes, that combo is valid.
It does qualify as an attack, the question is, does it only apply to one of the targets or to all of them. (Since you roll a seperate attack roll for each one.) Based on the verbage I'm inclined to say all the targets.

E: For example wand of accuracy only applies it's benefit to one target in an area, but it specifies it only applies to one attack roll not to one attack.
Thanks for the feedback guys.

I believe it the damage would apply to all the targets since its one damage role for everything

"Multiple Attack Rolls but One Damage Roll:
When you make an area attack, you make a separate
attack roll against each target in the area of effect,
but you make a single damage roll that affects all
the targets. A Large or larger creature hit by an area
attack is affected only once by the attack, even if
multiple squares of the creature’s space are in the
area of effect."
