I was confused about the difference between:
According to the Duolingo wikia, the prior one is good singular, the latter is good plural. Is that correct?
Sort of. The Dothraki wiki is a better source for this, see https://wiki.dothraki.org/High_Valyrian_Adjectives#S.C8.B3z-type
As you can see, it also depends on the case and gender.
It's the type of the noun. In the fourth declension, the accusative singular and plural forms are identical and both have the ī at the end. Examples would be "gelte" for a lunar noun (geltī), "hontes" or "zaldrīzes" for solar nouns (hontī/zaldrīzī) and "Targārien" for a terrestrial noun (Targārī). You can tell they're fourth declension nouns because the last syllable contains and e.
"Jentys", on the other hand, is a solar noun in the second declension, and for those, the accusative singular ends in a simple -i, while the plural ends in an -ī.
