In the fleet pass, there is a thread giving advice on what to put where, etc, but how do you actually bind an ability to a key?

Thanks.

When you check out the Preferences menu (esc to Main Menu -> Preferences), there's a Key Bindings tab at the bottom of the window. Take a look through it, see what kind of general activities you can bind. For binding your abilities you'll be using the second, third, and fourth quickbar keybinds.

To bind, click the existing keybind slot or the "Not Bound" button next to the action you want, then press the key you want to use.

When you select keybinds, you can bind both a key (say, Y) and its meta combinations (shift+Y, ctrl+Y, alt+Y) all separately

If you're biochem and have re-usables I would suggest that you put the adrenals on a macro. Few are the times where you have to save an adrenal for a special occassion so it's better to just have it macro'ed to your main attack, that way you'll never forget to use it. Same applies to relics.
