Beguiler/Rogue enthusiast. Paladins are cool, too.

comment Can a player multiclass if a prerequisite ability score(s) is met through a magic item?
I agree with your interpretation of the ability scores representing abilities and not defining them. One example of this would be: a Headband of Intellect +2 is like the D&D equivalent of a high-end camera in filmmaking. Sure if you get one you can have higher resolution and better colors, but if you're a novice, you're not going to suddenly become a great filmmaker. Conversely, Steven Spielberg could make an Oscar-winning movie on an iPhone (i.e. no Headband), but the high-end gear enhances his natural/acquired abilities. If you then take away that awesome gear, he's still Steven Spielberg.
