When you macro in fast cast gear such as cure clogs, do you have to put a wait time in before you cast the spell?
/equip feet "cure clogs"
/wait 1
/ma "cure" <t>

If you take the wait time out, will the equipment switch take effect in time to affect the cast time of the spell?
/equip feet "cure clogs"
/ma "cure" <t>

What if you put a <st> instead of <t>? Will the equipment switch will take effect if you pause a little before selecting the target?
/equip feet "cure clogs"
/ma "cure" <st>

For one, -spellcasting time doesn't work the same way as Fast Cast, since Fast Cast also reduces recast time if you finish casting in the piece, while -spellcasting time is just that, spellcasting time.

I know for Fast Cast gear, though I assume it'd work the same with -spellcasting time gear, you need to have it on before you start casting for the -casting time down to be in effect, so you'd need to have the wait before you start casting.

As far as the <st>, I put a wait between the equip and the <st>, but otherwise, yeah, that's how it'd work as far as the gear swapping in I believe.

yes, but if you blink gear while selecting a target this can disrupt your targeting; an alternative you can use is:

/ta <stpc>
/equip feet "cure clogs"
/ma "cure" <lastst>
