Had to abstain, as neither writer has ever impressed me.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Jemisin here. Haven't read Rothfuss.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Rothfuss is not at all my cup of tea, and I find Jemisin's work outstanding, so an easy one for me.

Another one where the vote would probably be different a few years ago: Jemisin all the way now, for me

Rothfuss, easily. N.K. Jemisin just does nothing for me.

At least Jemisin finishes her series.
