Unattended, nonmagical metal gets no saving throw. Enchanted metal is allowed a saving throw against the spell. An item in a creatures possession uses the creatures saving throw (unless its own is higher).
A creature takes fire damage if its equipment is burning. It takes full damage if its armor is affected or if it's holding, touching, wearing, or carrying metal weighing one-fifth of its weight. The creature takes minimum damage (1 point or 2 points; see the table) if its not wearing metal armor and the metal that its carrying weighs less than one-fifth of its weight.
On the first round of the spell, the metal becomes warm and uncomfortable to touch but deals no damage (this is also the effect on the last round of the spell's duration). During the second (and also the next-to-last) round, the hot metal causes pain and damage. In the third, fourth, and fifth rounds, the metal is searing, causing more damage, as shown below:
Any cold intense enough to damage the creature negates heat damage from the spell (and vice versa) on a point-for-point basis.
If cast underwater, heat metal deals half damage and boils the surrounding water.
Heat metal counters and dispels chill metal.
