Default [Q] Factory Reset/OTA Update Question For D800

Recently my at&t d800 has been acting up (freezing then automatically rebooting, horrible battery life) so I have decided to see if a factory reset fixes the issue. My only questions are...I am rooted with TWRP installed, now do I factory reset through the phone's settings, or through TWRP? and i am assuming i will lose root..correct?

Any insight would be appreciated.

EDIT:Ignore the OTA update part of the title.

If u have not taken the ota update you can do it from twrp and no you won't loose root as factory reset does not touch system partition

I did not take the OTA update. So what do I click in order to factory reset through TWRP? I have seen people say they have wiped their rom from their phones using factory reset in TWRP and i want to make sure i do not do that.

Once you go into wipe section the box on the bottom which says swipe to perform factory reset that's all you need.
