If a 7th level Waves Oracle takes the Water Sight revelation, what spell components do they need to provide when using the scrying ability, if any? My DM has ruled that I still need to provide a 1000g silver mirror as a focus, but I'm wondering if there is something we are both missing.

Water Sight (Su): You can see through fog and mist without penalty as long as there is enough light to allow you to see normally. At 7th level, you can use any calm pool of water at least 1 foot in diameter as a scrying device, as if using the scrying spell. At 15th level, this functions like greater scrying. You can use the scrying abilities for a number of rounds per day equal to your oracle level, but these rounds do not need to be consecutive.

Scrying Components
Components V, S, M/DF (a pool of water), F (a silver mirror worth 1,000 gp)

Components are usually a concern only when casting a spell

An oracle with the mystery waves that picks the revelation water sight uses scrying as a supernatural ability not a spell. Because such an oracle is not casting a spell to use the revelation water sight for the effect of the spell scrying, the oracle does not employ components, so the oracle needs only the calm at-least-1-ft.-diameter pool of water mandated by the revelation water sight rather than two pools of water, a 1,000-gp silver mirror, and a divine focus.

(On a somewhat more authoritative note, Paizo creative director James Jacobs says in a 2010 thread, "Supernatural abilities generally do not require things like components to function." And while that's slightly out of context, that generally should apply here, too.)


Note: For detailed examinations of the scrying spell's components, see answers to this question.
