Default [Q] Worth rooting?

I just got the S4 and am unsure about rooting. I miss many of the features I had on my rooted S3 but I'm wondering what the trade off would be like. The phone seems to be super fast as is but I do miss the ability to back up and flash ROMs. It also seems like rooting on the S4 is a fairly new process compared to the S3. I never have before, but I wouldn't want to brick the device. Any suggestions are welcome!
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S4
Android version: 4.4
