You have two choices:
  1. Just update from OTA updates (that`s how I did it, and I was on XX as well, so I am quite sure you will get the same 4.4.2 that I did, witch is easily rooted via TowelRoot)
  2. Update from Odin. (I updated 3 phones with odin, and I used the ROM posted here, that being said, the probably best way is to use the OTA updates, because when you use ODIN you always TAKE RISKS! )

This is the link for the latest German Official ROM - with no carrier branding.

The answer is as varied as the people on this forum. Each person will have a different reason to root. For me, it is so I can use TitaniumBackup and Root explorer. I have done many other things, but I always start here. Terminal is usually next.

no one has reported this yet...
Towelroot does not work on the SM-N900W8 Canadian version even if the ROM/Kernel was built well before June 3rd... it was built on Feb 27.
When I press the "Make it ra1n" button... it stays orange for a few seconds and mydevice is rebooting automatically even if it's not supposed to do it with V2. Root checker after the reboot says root is not available. Also, SuperSU says that there is no su binary installed.

I tried a few times with the same results. And yes, I disabled the reactivation lock and app check before trying it.

Anyone got it working with a SM-N900W8?
