I'm passed my 14 day return deadline so I guess I'm keeping this thing. I like it, buts a challenge with the battery.
Wondering if there are any means to conserve battery If I root, and if so how much would it really help?

Agreed. This will improve idle time significantly.

Freeze all bloat, remove carrier IQ, greenify system apps that are doing excessive wake locks.

All the things above are good and if you're still not happy, an app called lean data can really boost the battery.

All in all, coming from s3 I'm very pleased with the battery life on this thing

With root being easily achieved thanks to towelroot, there's not much of a reason to ever not root (apart from OTA's).

I enjoy brightness and constant music, so my phone is awake a lot and when the screen is on, it takes up a lot of battery life. So greenifying apps and removing bloat was a must to get the best battery life.
