Heat metal is a transmutation spell that heats metal to damage those who touch it.


This spell is identical to chill metal except that it makes metal warm, hot, and searing instead of cold, icy, and freezing. If cast underwater, heat metal does less damage and boils the surrounding water.

Heat metal counters and dispels chill metal.
