Default Do I need S Off to flash stock rooted roms?

Hey I don't have s off. But I have a problem with updating my root binaries. If I were to flash a stock 4.3 Rom would I need to have s off first ? I tried using a Rom last time and it didn't finishing installing. So I bricked. Sorry. I'm sort of a noob about some things.

your phone was not bricked ...you had a windows 8.1 pc and could not fix it that's all.

S-off gives you the ability to flash firmware and RUU for any version including downgrading. You don't need s-off to just flash roms.

So what could I have done? My phone wouldn't go past the boot screen
