If you have found the right balance of Difficulty, Damage, Toughness and Healing, please tell us all about it!
For the basic facts, lets try to follow this format. Feel free to copy and paste this for your post.

Here is mine:
Difficulty: Torment Level 1
Class: Wizard
Level: 70
Paragon Level: 156

Buffed Paper DPS: 295,833 (Magic Weapon Force Weapon and Unwavering Will. This doesn't include the 15% for Audacity passive)
List of Element Buffs: +18% Arcane Damage
List of Skill Buffs: 0
Amount of Primary Stat: 3,567 Intel

Buffed Toughness: 3,190,967 (Energy Armor Prismatic Armor, Unwavering Will)
Buffed Armor: 5,434 (Energy Armor Prismatic Armor, Unwavering Will)

So when I got to Urzael I was not happy with how long the battle was taking (I was soloing him). I would get bored, then sloppy and then I would get killed. I started with more toughness (and less DPS) that I needed, so I changed my gear up to max out my DPS (while sacrificing lots of toughness). That felt better, but I would die if I made a single mistake or if my latency went to yellow for a moment. So I ended up getting rid of Black Hole Supermassive, and I changed it back to Magic Weapon Force Weapon. I put on most of my toughness gear and I was finally able to beat him.

After I killed him, I continued into the Bloodmarsh and I found that the everything felt perfect! Not too hard or too easy! I could actually live long enough to use all of a pool of reflection bonus. So right now, this is my sweetspot.

I do Torment 1 really well in public games. I have no issues with bounties and rifts and can't wait till I can knock it up to Torment 2.

I found my first level 70 legendary weapon last night and it was a 2 handed staff. So I had to try to increase my attack speed while trying to keep as much crit chance as possible.

Difficulty: Torment Level 1
Class: Wizard
Level: 70
Paragon Level: 157

Buffed Paper DPS: 407,268 (Magic Weapon Force Weapon and Unwavering Will. This doesn't include the 15% for Audacity passive)
List of Element Buffs: +18% Arcane Damage
List of Skill Buffs: 0
Amount of Primary Stat: 4,038 Intel

Buffed Toughness: 2,991,747 (Energy Armor Prismatic Armor, Unwavering Will)
Buffed Armor: 5,711 (Energy Armor Prismatic Armor, Unwavering Will)
Block Chance: 0
Dodge Chance: 0
Buffed All Resist: 1,420 (Energy Armor Prismatic Armor, Unwavering Will)
Maximum Life: 211,519

Healing: 12,487
Life per Second: 6,796
Life per Hit: 3,810
Life per Kill: 0
Life Steal: 0

So my Toughness and Healing are lower than before and I have noticed that I am little more squishy. I am still able to kill very quickly and I don't die very often.

I mostly play partnered up with a DH friend so my low DPS isnt that much of a hinderence - also I use exploding palm which has damage that scales with enemy hitpoints rather than player stats which speeds things up even when solo. Also, I haven't died since I hit level 60

I traded in my 2,502 DPS 2 hander from the post above for a 1,990 DPS wand and my old Chantodo Source (I have not found a source that gives me as much DPS). I still have 44.2% increased Attack Speed which means my attack speed is now 2.02. I also have 42% Crit Chance. I tried using my Paragon Points on Crit Chance instead of Attack Speed, but Attack Speed was giving me more DPS.

Due to the auto-adjust of the monsters, Torment 1 still feels right, but I may poke my head into Torment 2 tonight.

Last night I managed to enchant a socket onto my level 70 Starfire wand. It has 2,062.9 DPS and 643 Intel whereas my rare wand had 1,990.1 DPS and 559 Intel. I was also able to enchant a level 70 Source to give it more DPS and Toughness than my pre-patch Chantodo's Force. Here are the stats for my new rare level 70 source:

Sphere Weapon
+284-342 Damage [262-394]
+601 Intel [525-625] Was 500 something Vitality before the enchant.
+9.5% Crit Chance [7-10]%
Crits grant 4 Arcane Power [3-4]
+14 Max Arcane Power [13-14]
