Crown of Insight is a different thing, as they can’t be obtained normally through farming, but usually just drop as part of events such as Chalk Prince and the Dragon. While, Shadow of the Warrior can be farmed by defeating Tartaglia in the Enter the Golden House Trounce, when your character is at level 70 or more.

As for Nectar, it can be found by killing Whopperflowers. Any slain slime will provide you with some, for example Shimmering Nectar can be obtained by killing Whopperflowers at level 40 or higher, while Energy Nectar by those at level 60 and higher.
