Since Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Story Creator mode launched last month, players have taken to building a whole variety of quests using the tool. A certain portion of the playerbase creating XP farming quests has, however, attracted the attention of publisher Ubisoft.
The post discussing the matter of XP farming quests, over on the Ubisoft forums, explains that they"risk jeopardizing the overall quality, integrity, and purpose of Story Creator Mode and results in less visibility for the creative, interesting and frankly fantastic community stories that have been published".

These adjustments include making XP farming quests not appear among other quests in the mode's recommendation system, hiding quests reported for "exploitation or cheating", "sanctioning those who continue to willingly and intentionally misuse the tool", alongside other measures that are bound to come further down the line.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Story Creator is a web-based tool that lets players forge their own in-game quests and share them with others. Being the most XP-reliant title in the series, the argument that the player experience is harmed by such quests can definitely hold water. At the same time, it's worth keeping in mind that in-game XP boosters are being sold for premium currency in Odyssey, making it rather easy to see why publisher Ubisoft wouldn't be too thrilled about players circumventing the microtransactions through XP farming quests.
