Which would be the best way for me to root it and what would be the chances of bricking the device if anything went wrong? I've backed up some of my important apps etc incase anything goes wrong but if it does then what would I have to do to restore it back?
I did it the "classic" way, installed TWRP 188.8.131.52 custom recovery, flashed the SuperSU zip and got the job done.
No issues, no complicated things, very noob-friendly process.
After installing TWRP you can create a backup ( from the main menu, select backup obviously ) called "NANDROID backup" ( it contains everything if you check it to backup everything ).
This way, if you screw things up one way or another, or you don't like the changes you performed, you can "restore" that backup with TWRP and you'll have your phone restored to the very same condition and contents with the time you created the backup
