I'm building an 8th level Zealot Barbarian for an ongoing campaign and I'm thinking about taking the Polearm Master and Sentinel feats because it's a pretty nice combo to protect your party and to apply rage bonus damage.
I would take variant Human for one of the Feats but lose some ability points. With point buy array of 15,14,13,12,10,8, I would end up with Str: 16 Dex: 14 Con: 16 -> the rest don't matter. (It's my first character so if I did something wrong let me know.)
Will this build be effective in combat, or does taking both of these feats end up with a stat dump that makes the character useless?
I would go for a Goliath Zealot instead with no feats but mean stats. I don't know a lot about the party make-up, so I don't know exactly what combat roles are needed. But I like to play characters that are team players and the feats will give that to me.
