It is true that as written (at the moment) we will not see Great Weapon Fighting/Polearm masters in the Living Arcanis campaign because they are both "styles" of fighting and you have to be in one style or another (never both). Is that really a problem?
"great weapon fighting" isn't affect by Stance rules (as a Fighter fighting style option).
Great Weapon Master is the feat; and I also don't see an issue with the Feats being stances and exclusive to each other.
GW Master/Polearm Master with +10 damage on attacks of opportunity? I really don't want to be on the end of NPCs with that combo.
I'm currently working out if having Twin Blades + Shield Master (by around 8th level) gives me the flexibility I want without too many drawbacks. Twin Blades + twf is good, dueling + Shield Master is also good; can't do both as I can only take 1 fighting style option at 1st level (not going Champion for a second style).
Probably going to go middle ground and take the defense style as it benefits both Feat options.
