How to root Samsung Galaxy Note 3 the easy way
We won't be extolling the virtues of rooted Androids here, like being able to use Google Now in more languages, since if you have decided to root, you are probably already aware of the pros and cons. 

Cutting to the chase - Chainfire's CF-Auto-Root has been modded to include an easy root for the just outed Samsung Galaxy Note 3, tested  with the SM-N900 (Exynos), SM-N9005 (International Qualcomm), and SM-N900T (T-Mobile US) versions of the handset so far, as well as a few files for the rest of the US carrier versions that are still in testing.

Download the latest version of the ODIN flashing software for Samsung handsets and the latest USB drivers if your phone doesn't get recognized by your computer, or visit Daerragh's ODIN thread from the source link below.

Get the appropriate file for your Note 3 model, which can be checked from Settings>About phone>Phone identity>Model number, then follow Chainfire's instructions below closely, or visit the respective thread we've sourced at the end:
