Can anyone tell me how the arcane blast works as I have seen it played as it hits all models under template at STR 13 and that is just brutal , too brutal as i believe it should be the model directly hit then blast damage on all the rest.
Any clarification on this would be great.

It's a simple AOE attacks with no additional rules, so it follows all the rules normal AOE attacks does, including halving strength for blast damage (so only model directly hit suffers POW13, all others suffer POW7 damage rolls.).
You may be confused by some AOE spells which do fixated damage to all models hit, like Asphyxious' Breath of Corruption, however these spells specify that ("Models hit suffer a POW X damage roll").
