S-Off is good for preventing brick in some situations, of course people still manage to brick their phones with s off, but to achieve S-Off you have to be familiar with adb and fastboot commands. If you required the toolkit for root, ie you do not know how to use adb and fastboot commands, I wouldn't recommend doing it until you are familiar with that. There are several guides, take some time to read and you should have a good start.
