You want to 1) never die, 2) basically never stop moving, 3) 1shot, or near that, every white mob.
For the most part - purely talking efficiency, MP0 or 1 = ~100k consistent DPS. MP2~3 = ~250k Consistent DPS. MP3~4= ~350k dps. This covers pretty much every gear level.
I still know a 295k DPS Archon Sorc playing in MP1 act 3.

Act 1 is those damn Goliath things that charge for all their worth, at higher mp levels they would most likely one-shot you if they charge you.
Act 2 is the insects that shoot out the bombs, they tend to kill quickly.
Act 3 is the Succubus spells, heralds of Pestilence and anything that spews fire.
Act 4 is anything that does fire damage.
Those are my problem areas, if you can find the correct way to either avoid damage from those or kill them quickly, then you'll do fine in my opinion.
I'm a 190k buffed DH with 630 all resist.

Here's an example: Jaetch with his 440k DPS unbuffed could easily do MP4+ all the time, but hit his paragon level 100 on MP0 because it was most efficient for him. However, when you're paragon 95+ it's really just about "getting there as fast as possible". Even though it's the most efficient way, I doubt anyone can do the dull grind from level 0 to 100 on MP0.
Find the level that grants you a reasonable amount of XP, but also lots of fun along the way.
Answers to these and many other questions in the Wizard Gear Guide.

In general, Elite packs should take from 5-10 seconds to kill. 10 seconds should only happen on mobs with whatever affixes are worst for you. So on average, you don't want to spend more than about 5 seconds on elites. 10 seconds for real tough ones.
If it takes much longer than that, you probably are too high a level for max efficiency. When I talk to people trying to farm, so many of them get blinded by the MF/GF/XP bonus, and farm too high MP. I can kill MP7-8 comfortably on my 170k unbuffed dps CM wiz.......but I still farm MP2. It is just much more efficient, I found this through timing multiple acts, MP levels, gear and builds.....
