Reading over the Oracle Mysteries for a future build I noticed that the Metal and Ancestor Mysteries seem to have a bit of information missing. Both the "Iron Weapon" Revelation and the "Ancestral Weapon" Revelation do not have an action specified for activating the ability/creating the weapon in question.

Given that the majority of Oracle Revelations that are offensive Supernatural (Su) abilities appear to use Standard actions, I would make the assumption that these two Revelations are also Standard actions. Is this a fair assumption? Is there an errata somewhere that specifies the action economy for these Revelations?


Quote from oracle, revelation ability:

Unless otherwise noted, activating the power of a revelation is a standard action.

Furthermore, from combat, under 'using a special ability':

Supernatural Abilities (Su)

Using a supernatural ability is usually a standard action (unless defined otherwise by the ability’s description). Its use cannot be disrupted, does not require concentration, and does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Therefore, using a supernatural oracle revelation is certainly a standard action, unless the ability itself explicitly states otherwise.
