Darksiders 2 sidequests

Is there any reason to explore different dungeons on the map that aren't quest related, or do you have to obtain a quest before there's any point in entering a dungeon? I was headed toward a main quest objective when I entered

The Shattered Forge. Entering the dungeon didn't set off any quest but I saw online that the dungeon is related to some sidequest where you have to find a special hammer. Can I complete that quest by just going thru the dungeon or do I have to get the quest from an NPC first? Yeah I'm rambling but this is confusing to me. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I'm fairly certain you can get the item and receive the quest that way. On my New Game +, I got the quests for the hidden stones and the Book of the Dead pages by finding these items in the environment. I see no reason why other quests wouldn't be the same way.

Makes sense, I suppose. Makes me think of Skyrim where I got the Dragonstone before officially getting the quest.

I was able to by mistake glitch to the top of the mountain over the gray beards. Before I even got my first shout.
