First of all: great name you have and welcome to this awesome forum!

Second:

Rooting on it's self can be very dangerous, in the beginning of Android, rooting was a delicate process that easily could go wrong. Luckily, because Android was open source, and because out awesome devs exploits were discovered. Those exploits could be used to gain root acces

But I think you understand what rooting is capable off.

On this moment, getting to the point , rooting is incredibly safe. A lot of "one-click" root tools have been released, and if they fail nothing happens. So don't worry. Plus, I don't know of any way you could hardbrick your device with rooting. It's nearly impossible. I also haven't heard of someone who got theor device soft-bricked! In the extremely rare case this happens, You can always recover by flashing a stock firmware.

So I hope your question is now answered!

Have a nice day!

The Safest method is Doomlord's Method

To avoid any possible problems

Make Sure you have installed adb drivers for your device and enabled USB Debugging before rooting.
