The whole system is only as strong as the weakest leg. Each anchor/rode combo must be robust enough by itself to hold the boat in the worst conditions you are expecting. One undersized and/or poorly set anchor can let go in severe conditions, foul the others, and leave you with a tangled, dragging mess. This I learned the hard way.
