the pyronomicon is stated to make him "1,000 times stronger". explain to me how his own power is 1,000 times stronger than his own power. the reason it doesn't make sense is because now you're just adding a pointless middle man into the equation when it could just be the more simple(and frankly more logical) story that it's an ancient artifact that he had been hunting for to increase his power. also, "his body can not use that much magic" makes no sense, since all that power would have been HIS to begin with, and thus his body WOULD have naturally been able to contain it all.
anyways, i'd say that the hero now COULD be a pyronomicon empowered xan(at least, the one from book 1, book 3 xan has probably grown in strength as well), since during the saving lymcrest saga, we beat him when he didn't have the pyronimicon powering him up, and the pyronomicon makes him 1,000 time stronger, like i already said. the reason i say we could beat him now even if he DID have the pyronomicon is because we've ALSO grown at least 1,000 times in power, thus it would basically be as if he didn't have the book and we didn't grow in power that much, in other words, literally the same result as in the saving lymcrest finale.
