Dungeon & Dragons: Presto's stats

From the Dungeons & Dragons Animated Series Handbook, here are Presto's stats:

"Presto always loved magic, but back on Earth he could hardly do card tricks. When Dungeon Master dubbed him the magician and gave him his hat of many spells, Presto was both frightened and thrilled by the prospect of using real magic. Although Presto possesses amazing intelligence, he lacks self-confidence and often hesitates or gets nervous in dangerous situations, making him appear less smart than he really is. Presto watches his friends do stunning physical feats on a regular basis, which makes him think of himself as weak and clumsy. He knows that magic is his best weapon, so it terrifies him to be without his glasses and thus unable to see what he's casting at."

    I'm not sure if I ever asked this, but in the DnD cartoon Venger really, really wanted the kids' various pieces of gear. Looking at the stats those items are given and the stats Venger himself has, in gameplay terms would they significantly make him more powerful?

    Like, I remember previously it was helpfully mentioned that Venger's provided stats make him about as powerful as an old and powerful dragon, but would Hank's bow, Diana's staff, Erik's shield, Presto's hat, Bobby's club and Shiela's cloak make him strong enough to go toe-to-toe with Tiamat?

      Nah, probably not? They were clearly just looking at what items already existed in 3.5 Edition to assign to the kids' stuff, rather than trying to accurately re-create (what could have realistically been) some game-breaking items...

        Hahah. Yeah, that's fair.

        Part of the reason I wondered was because you sometimes have items or characters in video games that don't seem special until you have the whole set or team, and then their power increases dramatically. I got to wondering if a similar deal was going on with the weapons and that was why Venger needed all of them, rather than just a few.

        Like, he can fire energy bolts from his hands, I don't see how Hank's bow would significantly improve his ranged combat ability. Though it's kind of funny to imagine him trying to pull Shiela's hood over his head...

      I figured it was more "get them for their power" than "get them for their abilities." That's why he needed the full set, so he could drain Dungeonmaster's magic from inside them and use it himself.
