I think the purpose of shattering the weapon is the try to guarantee that no one else will be able to use it. If they just hid it somewhere, someone could stumble upon it and wield it. By shattering it, these lore figures guarantee that the odd adventurer will not be able to use the weapon just because he stumbles upon one piece. This also makes it more likely that the pieces will fall into the hands of people or factions who aren't on speaking terms (alliance and horde, for example), preventing them from collaborating on reassembling the weapon.I read too deeply into these things sometimes, I know.

I'm sure she shattered it out of rage. From a game standpoint, what better way to get you to repeat content than to pick up pieces, again... Thunderfury, Atiesh, Val'anyr...

Quel'Delar was a symbol of what the Blood Queen once was and what she had become. That sword reminded her of her hatred of Arthas, who was now her master. More likely then not, she destroyed the blade to destroy the conflicting emotions inside her head.

As fantasy books teach us, if a powerful weapon is shattered somewhen in described world's past, it never stays shattered. Was Narsil/Anduril the first of such weapons?
