After Yagluth Has Been Defeated
Upon Yagluth's defeat players will receive the Yagluth Trophy & The Yagluth Thing. The Yagluth trophy can be placed on the spawning altar to receive its power, while the Yagluth Thing serves no purpose in-game so far.
For now, you can now explore Valheim and its mass open world. Perhaps on future updates The Yagluth Thing will be served as a key item for a new boss that could perhaps be added for the Mistlands Biome or the Ocean Biome?Click Here For The Biomes Guide!

Eikthyr is the first boss that you'll be facing off in the Meadows Biome. A large stag with chains on its antlers that looks like the undead which he can summon lightning from his iron antlers.
