Last night the player monk grappled the vrock.
Upon attempting to escape via At-Will Spell Like Ability: Greater Telport, a player called for a concentration check from the vrock.
The vrock at that point was pinned in a grapple.
Since the SLA is mental only (no components or somatic components needed) did the GM (vrock) need to make a concentration check?
End result: the vrock wasn't able to use its SLA (greater teleport) and was beaten to death by the players.
Rules experts, please help!
Yes. Spell like abilities still follow the concentration checks like normal spells. A grappler can be a spell casters worse nightmare.
Also just throwing it out there because i had a discussion with a long time DM about "at will slas", its not instant and still requires a standard action to pull off.

If I recall, to build on N00bxqb's idea:
(Su) and (Ex) do not require a concentration check. (Sp) abilities, which is short for spell-like abilities, are subject to the same rules as spells—Faerie Fire is still dispelled by Darkness—with the exception that they do not require spell components, spell failure or draw attacks of opportunity. However, they still require a considerable amount of concentration and anything that requires a concentration check while casting a normal spell is required for using a spell-like ability.
