The Spoils of War Prelude Event began on May 4, 2011 and ended 1.3 on June 22. 
The Planes of Earth and Fire are suddenly showing an increase in activity, expanding their reach into zones previously left to other planar forces. Their Rifts and Invasions grow more numerous - but why? Strange things—stranger than usual, that is—are emerging from the rifts of Fire and Earth. Fragments of ancient golden dragon eggs lie scattered wherever the Flame- or Earthtouched set foot. Even stranger, coins have been raining into both Sanctum and Meridian, inspiring unusual greed in the locals. Neither Guardian nor Defiant scholars can solve this mystery without studying these shells and coins, so the Ascended must collect as many specimens as possible. 
This event begins with the appearance of the Mendicant Order in Sanctum and the Shale Collegiate in Meridian (The Case of the Shells). Earth and Fire rifts can now be found across all of Telara, even in areas that have never seen planar activity of this type before.
Each of these factions offers a set of daily quests for players to enjoy. Defeat Earth and Fire rifts of at least green level difficulty to receive Dragon Egg Shells and be rewarded for your efforts.
* To complete all of the dailies you will need to obtain 80 Ancient Golden Dragon Egg Shells each day. 10 shells are from a daily quest reward.
* Some dailies may not be available due to level or lack of a crafting profession.
- Artisan's Glowing Pouch - Gives a number of planar dusts along with either 10-20 artisan marks or 1 plaque of the profession chosen.
- A Mysterious Artifact - Gives a random green quality artifact from any existing collection.
- This artifact has a rare chance of being blue quality.
- Chest of Riches - Gives a random green or blue quality artifact from any existing collection and 1 0 0 or more.
