OK so how difficult is the whole rooting process. And what do you gain and or loss by doing it? I read lots about it but have never done it.

The rooting process is fairly simple...you can get chainfire's root and flash it through Odin...takes about a minute.

Also I've noticed that this didn't trip knox's counter

Its a straight forward process if you know your stuff, It gives applications access to your system files. If you are just a regular user , don't do it. There isn't really any need for rooting if you don't want to do custom roms or etc.

Follow this guide for rooting/custom roms/ etc :

Got a few main reasons why I root:

Remove ads from apps, backup apps and data to SD card, and bypass exchange security lock for outlook email account.

And a good custom rom will probably have those built in.

How does rooting and custom roms affect S-Pen usage? I am guessing a custom rom will make it 100% useless? I really want to root as I have done with all of my previous devices, but tripping knox is something I'm not sure I want to do considering it voids warranty. Hoping a method comes out that doesn't trip it.

It does not affect the functionality of any part of the phone, including the S-Pen, it would be useless if it did. 

Don't hold your breath though, its unlikely to see a method come out without tripping knox , Note 3 has been out for a year now and still hasn't seen it.

The Exynos version of the note 3 can be reset with great difficulty. Not the qualcom though.

RDLV root method didn't trip Knox. Just didn't support the later firmware.

And for the s pen, you only lose the features on AOSP based custom roms, or any ports for that matter. All the Samsung based ROMs are fine. Been using Sweet ROM since Note 2. Good ROM to try if you're new to rooting.

So you're saying I could flash Cyanogenmod for example, and still have use of the S-Pen including features such as Air Command etc? How about multi tasking? I am feeling kind of doubtful in both respects.

No, thats not what i am saying at all. you asked if Rooting affect Spen , and i said no, it doesnt.

What you said is installing custom rom , like cyanognmod, not rooting. If you install custom roms that are not based on samsung's firmware (like CyanogenMod) you WILL lose Spen, Multi windows, and all other samsung features.
