If I take a system update will I lose root? I've blocked updates but was just wondering.

Most likely.

If you have made any system changes, you will not be able to accept it anyways. It will just fail.

Best practice is to wait and see if those that have taken an update are able to Root afterwards, if so then your good!

Personally... I'm just keeping my phone on the 10B firmware until a custom recovery comes. My phone runs great right now.

If for some reason we make it to the Android L update before we get an unlock, then I'm wait and see if it's possible to Root and unlock that prior to updating.

My S4 was on 4.4.4 and really being on 4.4.2 were not missing anything.

You would lose root.
It's a toss up of whether you would even be able to take the update.
Depends on how they check the file system. Definitely if you are running Xposed, you won't be able to OTA unless you go back to stock.

Somewhat OT, but I was a bit surprised to see that I kept root after a factory reset (TiBu borked myself into a bootloop). Just re-downloaded and installed SuperSU, and good to go.
