After violence and troubles, karachi now seems to be on peace. So as far as you are stick to the posh locations of Defence, Clifton areas, you will be safe.

If you have any specific qustions, let know.

More generally, is most of the city considered safe or only about 20% like I have heard? And, What things should be on my must see list?

I did end up going in November and left unharmed. Traveled to all four provinces and took two domestic flights. Definitely not perfectly safe but visited people that were well knowledgeable about safe areas.
