Once you defeat the Bonemass, you will get Wishbone, which can be used to find Silver Ore inside of Mountains and Treasures that can be sold to Merchant in exchange for money.

Dragon Moder Boss

After summoning Dragon Moder, you will have to use Needle arrows to attack the fourth boss. For the unversed, you can get the Needles from the bugs that can be found in the planes but if you have some Silver gear, it would be a lot easier to defeat the Dragon Moder.

Once you kill the Dragon Moder, you will get some Dragon Tears, which you can use to craft artisan table in Valheim. First thing you need to do is grab its head and put on the pedestal at the start and you receive a buff, allowing you to have five minutes worth of wins.

Yagluth Boss

Continuing the Valheim boss progression, the next boss is Yagluth. After summoning the final boss Yagluth, you will have to use the same modus operandi that you did while fighting with Dragon Moder.  Once you managed to kill Yagluth, you will be rewarded with a Placeholder. Notably, it has not been added to the game yet but when the game is updated, this will surely turn into some valuable item.
