We know nothing at the moment. For all we know, the very end could be the same as this tier, we just keep upgrading the gem, and in the end the gems increase the main stat by 1000 and have a 5,000 stat proc which would put any sha-touched socketed weapon on par with a legendary of that tier. The only thing that's separated every legendary from its tier is a proc that goes beyond the normal stats of a weapon of the same tier. Some of the legendaries have been slightly higher ilvl, some have been the same ilvl as the heroic gear of that tier.

It's a Helm Socket. You can fit a helm in your sword, so that enemies will be confused and attack the weapon instead of you. Excellent for tanking, but you should have some repair Bot near you so you can repair multiple times.
