Livia and the Scepter of Orr

I have looked the entire web for this and found absolutely zero info on this.
It has been bothering me all these years.
I'll explain...

At the end, when you defeat the great destroyer in the Eye of the North, you get Ogden Stonehealer narrating what is to come in the future.
For instance here are a few examples that he says... about the following...
In no particular order.

● New creatures will stir.
Obviously the mother tree and Sylvari.

● New threats...
The Dragons.

And here is what I mean...
● New sacrifices will be made...

(Livia discovers the scepter of Orr, and hesitates in picking it up.)

Then we're left with nothing else afterwards; unless I missed something, what happened?
What did that lead to?
Did she use it?
What were the consequences?

Anyone knows?
I only played lws3 one time, I vaguely remember her in there.

    We know that she used the Sceptre to prolong her life. She still serves the royal bloodline to this day.

    Remember, that many things have been heavily retconned between GW1 and GW2. That includes the role and importance of the Scepter (a sideeffect of rewriting the whole cosmology of Tyria in order to sideline the Human Gods). While it was a Major Stuff (TM) in GW1, it's no longer as relevant now. And they prefer to not reference any stuff from GW1 unless they have to, because they don't want us to notice how massive were the changes to the lore.

    The whole point of a social game is to play with the people you want to play with, not be forced to play with the people you don't.

    i mean if thats their goal it failed. Anyone who played GW1 and got into the lore of the world will notice right of the get go. Some of the changes where good, some bad..its a shame it didnt happen much more naturally but bleh.

    Sh has a cameo in the Sea of Sorrows novel as well, but any in game reference to her is exclusively confined to LS3 Ep 6

    The devs have said GW2 is the story of the Elder Dragons and specifically Aurene. So don't expect much focus on Gw1 lore unless it directly ties into that

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .
