I'm a Jedi Knight in SWTOR and being a melee class, I find quite annoying having to run to follow my target when it's being pushed back by a party member.

Is there an option to auto run at hitting range of the current target when I cast an attack?

    Currently there are no built-in game mechanics for this. And no add-ons, mods, nor scripts are allowed. So no; you have to do the leg work. – Mufasa Dec 19 '11 at 3:44

There is an auto run button which you can configure, as I did, to something like the thumb button on your mouse. Then you can point at a target and hit auto run, but you'll have to aim at them.

There is a follow mechanic in game but it only works on fellow player characters!

  • tl;dr version: No, there isn't a way to do that. – Mufasa Dec 19 '11 at 15:14
  • I find coming with at least a helpful solution better. – David Yell Dec 19 '11 at 16:18
  • I'm not complaining; your workarounds are acceptable and the only ones available for now, yes. My comment was clarifying that this wasn't necessarily a solution to the problem, but they were little things you could try that would minimize the problem. (Which is all Bioware is letting us do for now.) – Mufasa Dec 19 '11 at 16:20
  • It does NEED a follow, I asked this question of myself during the beta! Let's hope – David Yell Dec 19 '11 at 16:22
  • Last night I tried to configure caps-lock as auto-run, but annoyingly that doesn't seem possible. Rather a shame as it seems to be the logical key to use to me. – Mark Booth Aug 13 '12 at 16:09
