Range60 feet
TargetA manufactured metal object that you can see within range

Here you’ll get a manufactured metal object so chose that, the manufactured metal item means a metal weapon or the suit of heavy or it’d be a medium metal armor which you’ll see within a specific range. To glow the red-hot you want to cause the article. With an object, any creature within the physical contact will take 2d8 fire damage whenever you cast the warmth Metal 5e spell. On each of your subsequent turns, you’ll use the bonus action until the spell will end then it’ll cause this damage again. The creature must be succeeded on a constitution saving throw or it should drop the article if it can but this may happen whenever if a creature is holding or wearing the thing then it’ll take the damage from it.

But it’s the disadvantage whenever it doesn’t drop the article and its disadvantage is on attack rolls and therefore the ability checks this maybe until the starting of your next turn.
