Default [Q] Does rooting the Note 3 still require a total wipe?

Hi,

I'm really interested in rooting my Note 3 so I can add some Xposed features to it but I am reluctant since from what I remember rooting involves wiping the whole device once the bootloader is unlocked. But I read recently that T-mobile's bootloader is already unlocked. So question is, do I still need to wipe my whole device or does the Root De La Vega root it but keep everything intact?

No need to wipe anything when rooting. Just let Root De La Vega do it's thing and everything will be as was except it's rooted.

Bootloader is unlocked. Won't lose data using root de la vega. That method works great too. Really easy.
