So I've been reading on several different websites some conflicting information.

Some people are saying the higher difficulty settings cause higher drop rates. If this is true, does that mean across the board higher drop rates, or for rare items, words, or what?

It definitely makes a difference. I spent 3 hours on normal difficulty farming for black pearls and got none at all. In 1 hour on hard I got 10.

There are some items where you apparently need to play on easy - check out the other posts here.

Some items drop more frequently on easy.
Can't remember which those items were now though!

I would assume common items like medical herbs drop more on easy.

Any gold coloured item drops more on hard, and the rare harvesting spawns like eagle egg also drop more on hard.

In addition I found the white flower seeds are more likely on hard as well.
