Because the Infernal Staff of Herding plans are only accessible at the end of Act 4, are the item level drop rates in Whimsyshire the same as Act 1 Inferno or Act 4 Inferno as referenced here?

For item drop purposes, Whimsyshire is considered part of Act III/IV by Blizzard in Inferno and Act IV at other difficulties.

Acts 3 and 4 have different drop-rates, so which is it? – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Jun 28 '12 at 16:47
Acts 3 and 4 have the same droprates. – heishe Jun 28 '12 at 17:25
@BlueRaja: In Inferno (which the OP was asking about), Act III and IV drop the same levels of gear. I've clarified my answer for other difficulties though. – Matthew Scharley Jun 28 '12 at 23:59
