Counterspelling. How does that work with no spell slots?
Casting provokes AoO's. Period, end of discussion, aye.
Material components can stay, as they're a good way of preventing people from spamming certain spells. XP components... hadn't really considered. They're pretty obnoxious, though... might go. They're certainly not used for much outside of wish/miracle/permanency.
Counterspelling doesn't mention spell slots at all, so it works exactly the same with spell points.
