wobbly is on a distinguished road
It makes it a lot less likely. I'm pretty sure the odds are dependent on damage like in angband. The only way to prevent it is to take 0 damage. Generally not feasible but if your evasion is high enough melee frost/fire attacks aren't hitting (this is part of why Rauko-bane is such a standard by the way), your shield counts against breathe attacks. Block, Heavy Armour, Fire resistance. I've hit a point where Great Fire Drake will do 0. More normally, just pack a shield & rfire and it'll be rare, but happens.
