Although it's not a new trend, the practice of making pre-made playable characters to represent each class in an MMO is becoming more and more popular.
In games like Rusty Hearts
and a few others, you pick from an assortment of pre-made characters to play the game. Customization is non-existent or minimal, but you're not really playing those types of games for a deeply customizable character. Without worrying about getting your hair and eye color just right, you can grab a character and just start playing.
