Druids and explosive affix

Druid
I can't say for how long this "thing" has exsisted but i just recently had enough of how, whenever there is explosive affix in M+, boomkins feel sooo weak.
The main point is:
Why doesn't Sunfire and Lunar Strike not affect explosives? (also the totems on 3rd boss in King's Rest)

I mean, you can Sunfire the living crap out it and nothing happens. So your only option is to Starsurge or god forbid do some wank 2k moonfires or hard casting 2-3 solar wrath.
It would be really nice if you could go with 3x sunfire or moonfire trait for this but that's not even gonna be viable in the upcomming patch with the changes to those traits.
At least in Legion, as a healer, I could moonfire them, and the explosives would usually die from the dot, before they would explode.

I haven't done a m+ with explosives yet--will later today.

Primarily, you have to actually target them, that is a requirement for all classes, things like sunfire (AoE) abilities will have no effective, that is not new. If we could effectively AoE them down, they would be trivial, esp. last expansion when dungeons were just AoE fests.

I'm not just on about the AOE component of those spells. I just think it would be very nice for boomkins to actually get the dot applied to single target or the direct damage from the spells.
You can use Sunfire on explosives and they won't get the dot or direct damage but everything around (excl. other explosives) will get the dot.
That's just silly
I feel next to useless on them. By the time I've managed to target them, they are either about to go off or are about to die from melee in the group. I'm starting to pool up my astral power so I have starsurges ready to pop on to them asap... which doesn't feel fun.
Exactly my point.
Having to pool astral power is pretty common but spending 40 on a potintial 30-40k crit, which is a massive overkill with the 10k hp they generally have, is just really waste of resources.
Moonfire doesn't kill them anymore?
