Few people experiences says :
Because iOS 8 was so sluggish on my iPad 3 I reset all settings (No data or media will be deleted) and sped it up BUT deleted my iWork data! Then promptly synced and deleted it in iCloud. I have public beta of Yosemite so can’t roll back via time machine. I have no pre iOS 8 backups in iTunes or iCloud to revert to (well iCloud device backups don’t contain cloud documents and I should have iOS 7 backups in iTunes but can’t find any. iCloud has no trash like dropbox. They seem gone forever. For more information visit Macroumors forum.
Reset all settings is not suppose to delete any data store in iCloud Drive and it should only reset the settings.
Its a question to think before if you are going to upgrade your device with iOS 8.
